My Labor Playlist

I’m not even going to pretend that my labor experience was a good one. It wasn’t. It was awful. Really awful. And not just for me. I’m pretty sure my mom and my aunt have been scarred for life… and they’ve had 3 kids each!

Maybe I’m being dramatic. But probably not.

That being said, I would absolutely do it again. Of course, I’d prefer if it went a little more according to plan but even if it didn’t I would do it again (and again… and again).

There are some things I would do differently (like hold my ground on refusing induction) but one thing I would not change is having a labor playlist! My labor was long and exhausting but having my playlist helped to keep me calm and connected to God, even in the middle of extremely painful labor (ok, except that one time when I just cried).

I would definitely recommend having a labor playlist. Here’s what was on mine:

  • Prayer for all Children – Janet Angela Mills (Childbirth in the Glory)
