Background and purpose:Favorable auditory stimulation  improves  the physiological function  in the  preterm neonates. Thus this study investigates the effect of mothers' whisper on pretem  neonates' physiological  parameters.  

Materials and methods: This one group, pre-post-test clinical trial study was conducted in NICU of Mehr Hospital in Malayer, 1395. Thirty-six preterm neonates, gestational aged 32-37 weeks and birth aged 3-28 days, were selected by simple random sampling. The mother of each neonate talked with her own baby for ten minutes in three days with whispered voice. Arterial blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), heart rate (HR) and respiratory rate (RR) was measured three times, 5 minutes befor, 10 minutes within, 5 minutes after intervention in each day. Data was analyzed with SPSS 22, and descriptive statistics such as mean, standard deviation and analysis of variance with repeated measures and toki multiple comparisons tests. Confidence level was 0.95.

Results: The mean SpO2, RR and HR values were significantly difference between three times of measurement in each day (P<0.001). According to toki test, the mean SpO2 values increased and Mean RR and HR values decreased between three times of measurements in each day.

Conclusion: The live whisper of own mother improves the physiological parameters of the preterm neonate. SpO2 increased, HR and RR decreased. Therefore, in daily nursing care planning, the nurses can give hours to the mothers that they talk with their babies.
