Songs for a Summer Birth PlayListby Elizabeth MacDonald
You may think that music is music and that it doesn’t matter what season your baby is due, but you are wrong! (Although, it is your birth – so, I guess I won’t judge whatever music selection you make.) But if you are like me, then you may feel connected to the season you are birthing in, and with that comes the music that accompanies that season.
Thinking about your upcoming birth and the atmosphere that you would like during the birth can be heavily influenced by the music you have playing in the background. Music can play a huge role in labor no matter where you choose to birth. A hospital, birth center, or birth in your own home – all can be made peaceful and special by choosing a playlist that will make you feel happy and loved throughout labor. So, charge those bluetooth speakers and pack them in your birth bag!
All of my friends at My Baby's Heartbeat Bear have helped to compile an awesome list of song suggestions to be included in a summer birth, but of course, you can use any of your personal favorites! Some will tug at heart-strings, others will make you laugh, but all will help you push through labor to meet your baby.
