The top 20 most popular songs women listen to when giving birth

If you’re preparing to welcome your little one into the world, you’re probably busy getting everything organised for their arrival and trying to plan their birth as best you can. 

One thing you may not have considered for when you go into labour is a special song to have playing when your baby makes their arrival.

It’s becoming more and more popular for mums to make a playlist of meaningful songs and relaxing melodies to have playing when they give birth. Whether you want slow music to keep you calm when you’re in labour or a personal song that can always remind you of that special time, it may be something you want to organise before your due date.
