These are mostly Christian songs and none of them are terribly fast/upbeat. I think I’ll want more meditative music during labor, but the most important thing for me is that they are encouraging and keep me focused on how loving our Creator is.
I’ve linked them all to YouTube videos in case you’re not familiar, but those aren’t necessarily the exact recordings I’ll be using – still making those decisions.
