My doula suggested a playlist without a lot of words – more instrumental. I never got around to actually creating a playlist so I just set it to ‘Leahy’ the second time I got in the tub and it stayed on repeat for the next 2-3 hours. We laughed about the fact we were hearing the same songs over and over again but I didn’t care. The music is irish folk so a little bit upbeat but I LOVE IT – it’s so relaxing to me. Now everytime I listen to it (or any irish/clogging music)  I’ll think of Warren’s delivery. (I don’t think my husband ever wants to hear it again!)

During stressful times I put on some Bob Marley in my car and it relaxes me, so I plan for him to be on my delivery room list. Other than that I agree that songs without words might be a good direction: nature sounds(ocean waves)? Also, we all have those songs that make us happy too: wedding song, oldies, middle school dance songs, girl power songs…these might be good for your list?

Europa Ensamble! The entire playlist is soothing and emotional, with sounds of rain and thunder as well as some truely beautiful music. I think it would be perfect for laboring.

My prenatal yoga instructor/doula has a “prenatal playlist” of songs that are empowering for women.  I loved it and the nurses commented on it.  I’d be glad to share the songs with you if you want!

i never got to make my playlist since my baby came a few weeks early, but i was always of the mindset that i’d want to listen to songs that i already love that happened to be soothing and calm – with or without words. this way if i was in labor for hours and hours, i could at least feel within my element. so far, i had planned a mix of neo-soul (erykah badu, jill scott), lady singers (feist, billie holiday, nina simone), and bob marley. i say stick with music you already like so you have something to connect with, sing along to, and keep your mind occupied throughout labor.
