I was just wondering if anyone used music during their birth? I really want to look into doing a playlist on my iPOD and having a speaker in my room and play music to kind get my mind off the pain and kinda just be able to have fun per se.

Was anyone able to do this or have they thought about it or in the process of setting something up like this??

I am thinking of having my fav 80s songs, oldies, some hip-hop, and country... just a variety of music that has always gotten me in the uppity mood....

all kinds of music can help. I'd sugguest making a few playlists, some uppity music, and some relaxing/instrumental music. I've even been at top 40's births, anything can work, but variety is important.

I'm just hoping that the hospital will allow me to have the music in the room.... I don't see what the problem would be i'm not going to have it blasting loud....

My son Lucius was born to Megadeth. We had it playing for about the last two hours or so of labor. It helped take my focus off of the pain of my contractions. I plan to play music at all of my future children's births too.

I've made a few different CDs to listen to, and I have DH's ipod with headphones.

I did this and it never happened. I suggest you put your birth partner in charge of setting it up and not to wait for you to suggest it or remember or do it- the same with anything you want, like low lights or aromatherapy. I forgot everything once everything started happening and I wish my hubby had taken charge a little bit.

Keep in mind you may not want anything to do with what you have set up once the time comes. Having a few different playlists is a good idea. I have read that reggae is perfect for birth because it really gets the hips moving in a good rhythm to get baby to come down.

Check with your hospital, you should be able to bring something with you for music but they won't provide it.
