Music has been great for me in labor. Anyone care to share their fave songs to labor to? I am thinking upbeat for some and then really chill, too. I like a mix of different styles of music so there is a wide range but here are some of my faves.
We're creating ours online and then will download it to the Ipod so it can be in two different rooms if I need to move around the house. It's less than 3 hours long at this point though and I don't need such a short labor on tons of repeat, I don't think. So, please share some other songs with me!
Dixie Chicks: Lullaby
Mason Jennings: Be Here Now
Ryan Adams: Hallelujah & Come Home
Otis Redding: That's How Strong My Love Is
Brian Johnson: Love Came Down
The Gayatri Mantra (We sing it to the babies in Bali as they are being born.)
The Avett Brothers: The Salvation Song
Everything by Third Day that is calming and not too intense. I especially like God of Wonders.
The Four Tops: Reach Out and I'll Be There
One Republic: Good Life
Bethany Dillion: I'm Yours
Anything by The Innocence Mission (i doula'd for a musician friend who labored to them and it brings back the best memories. the music is super soothing.)
Roman Candle: The Big Light (the musician friend I doula'd for)
Bob Marley: Is This Love?
Barry Loius Polisar: All I Want is You
