Lullaby Project

The Lullaby Project pairs pregnant women and new mothers and fathers with professional artists to write and sing personal lullabies for their babies, supporting maternal health, aiding childhood development, and strengthening the bond between parent and child. In New York City, the project reaches parents in healthcare settings, homeless shelters, high schools, foster care, and correctional facilities. Extending across the country and around the world, the Lullaby Project enables partner organizations to support families in their own communities.

The Lullaby Project offers free resources for families with babies and toddlers. Explore our collection of activities, videos, playlists, and more.
