This week I’ve been focussing on what would help me relax during labour. I never created a playlist for Busby’s birth as wasn’t sure whether it would be allowed in hospital, and foolishly never thought to ask. Music is such a huge part of my life, and it’s one thing that really helps me relax. I’ve been thinking about the atmosphere I want to create during my next labour, and which songs I’d love to be playing when I meet our next bundle.
I love this song, Sea Creatures from Soak – I think it’s super relaxing and the sounds of the sea would help me concentrate on my contractions.
I’m a bit obsessed with Hold My Hand by Jess Glynne at the moment; it would be an excellent motivation song for a pre-labour jiggle!
Sky Full of Stars by ColdPlay is one of my favourite songs in recent years, and I think it would be an amazing song to welcome Peppercorn into the world with. Although it wasn’t actually played at our wedding (the DJ didn’t have it – sob!) I associate it with our Big Day, and all the love that was felt on that day between each other, and from our family and friends. It’s such a feel good song!
What was on your birthing playlist?
