This article exposes the work realized in a NICU, in a small group of parents and their hospitalized premature or ill newborns. The group has a containing function, regarding the effects of the traumatism that occurs when such babies are born. It allows sharing affects and emotions that are filtered and softened through singing. Actually, the parents themselves propose songs or lullabies. The group process is described regarding parents and babies: close infant observation is an essential part of the process. © 2009 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.
