Labor and Delivery Playlists

Push to the Beat: Creating the Ultimate Labor and Delivery Playlist

Music can be magical. Ask any athlete who's getting ready for a big game, or a runner who needs an extra jolt to make it to the finish line — they'll often say it was a specific song or beat that got them there.

While there's no secret to a quick and easy labor, plenty of mamas will credit a playlist of motivating songs for getting them through the final push. It energized them and blocked out sounds that may have distracted them in the process. Birthbeats offers up one midwife's ideal birthing playlist, but we want to know what's on yours? Did you have a specific song you wanted playing when your lil one entered the world? Or did you have a full-on playlist created to help you through the marathon of labor? Tell us in the comments below!
