My Push Playlist | Just Add Ginger

Music for labour - Just Add Ginger blog

I always saw music playing an integral part of being in labour. I'm one of those who can't really work without some kind of background noise humming away, and labour will be no exception. With some opting for relaxing melodies and dulcet tones to lead them through contractions, I've instead gone for songs that I can sing along to (albeit through gritted teeth) or have playing in my head as a bit of a theme tune. Using Spotify as my app of choice for making my compilation, here are some of the songs I want to be listening to as we welcome Baby Ginger into the world.

  1. I love this! I think it's such a good idea to have ones you can sing along to and use as a bit of a distraction, especially when things really get going!
