Today, many methods are used in the evaluation of intrauterine fetal well-being. Non-stress test (NST) method is mostly used in the non-invasive evaluation of fetal well-being during pregnancy and labor. NST is a procedure in which fetal heart sounds are recorded and the relationship between fetal movements and fetal heart beat is monitored.3 Various methods are used to minimize the psychological effects that occur during pregnancy. Among these methods, it has been seen in the studies in the literature that music, which is a non-pharmacological method, has a positive effect on the pregnant woman and the fetus. It is easy and enjoyable to listen to music during the routine non-stress test process. However, there are not enough studies to prove the effect of music.

The aim of this study was to examine the effects of the music concert applied during the nonstress test procedure on the health of the fetus, the anxiety level of the pregnant woman and blood pressure.
