I am looking for some good music to download for my birth.<br><br>
What are all of you planning on listening to?<br><br>
In past births, what music made you feel relaxed, more energetic, better, etc.?<br><br>
I'm open to any kind! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

On my playlist I have:<br><br>
Medwyn Goodall<br>
Sophia<br>
Enya<br>
Some really awesome songs I put together for meditation and massage a few years ago<br>
Norah Jones<br>
Some songs off of my Buddha Bar CD's<br>
and a CD of Blessingway music performed by a group of midwives during a retreat.<br><br><br>
Last time around I remember DH putting on the rolling stones right before transition and I yelled at him to turn that sh*t off. It was much to high energy for me. But we did listen to a couple of Grateful Dead CD's and some Beatles earlier in my labor.

I practice and occasionally teach Kundalini Yoga. There are *many* mantra tapes available through Spirit Voyage website. Many people like Snatam Kaur, Grace is a good one, I like too many to list, but the site lets you sample many. Many of the mantra CD's (not melody) are set to music, but there's a science to the rhythm and sound that is more condusive to meditation and focus. I intend to have several of my faves on hand. best wishes, jen

Have you heard Krishna Das? (you can listen on krishnadas.com) He's a kirtan leader with a lovely deep, earthy voice. It makes me feel confident about my body's ability to give birth, and I'll definitely be playing it during labor and delivery.

The Bach cello concertos played by Yo Yo Ma. We had them playing at the last three births, and will for this one as well.

if you are an I-Tunes user, try going to the itunes store and doing a search (like 'birth') under the users' playlists (I think it's called i-mix or something). lot's of variety there and you can preview the songs...

Oh Yo Yo Ma! I've heard of her (it is a SHE right?). I'll have to check that suggestion out. Thanks for starting this thread...

My last birth I really wanted to listen to a song by System of a Down.Its really pretty and has a nice almost lullaby sound.The birth went so fast that I would never have been able to listen to it especially traveling to the hospital.This time I'm staying home so who knows?maybe I'll get to listen to it.<br>
I tend to like energetic songs better than instrumentals/chantings.It helps me move and roar.
