Christian Playlist for Labor & Delivery

Although I don’t consider myself musical AT ALL, I love music!! It lifts my mood and brings joy to our home.

A few years ago one of my blogging friends shared her labor playlist for a Christ-centered birth. I’ve been making a list of songs I want to include in my personal labor playlist and I thought it would be fun to share with you.

Everyone has different taste in music, but I hope you find some of these songs inspirational.

Music can change your mood so while you plan for your labor and delivery make a playlist! Here is a great list of Christian songs to include in your playlist for labor and delivery.

I split my playlists into three sections. First, slower or mellow songs. Second, faster or upbeat songs. Lastly, gospel inspired songs.

Depending on my mood I’ll probably change between the slower music and the faster music. My goal for this birth is to have it filled with joy and one of the best ways I know to do this is sing to the Lord! 

When I gave birth to our first daughter I thought I wanted everything to be mellow and calm. Then when I was pushing I realized I needed some extra motivation.

Thankfully the doctor who delivered Izzy was tough. She reminded me of my old swim coaches and I valued her yelling at me! I needed to be reminded “Lauren you better get your head in the game and do this.”

As I said before everyone has their personal preferences so you may want to consider your likes, dislikes, desires, etc. and plan a playlist accordingly.

  2. I love this post! Music is sooo helpful during labor! When I had my babies, I HAD to keep my mind on Christ or else I just wasn’t able to relax. Worship songs help so much with this. Thank you so much for this list.

    I also encourage the moms in my childbirth classes to write Scriptures they want to meditate on to be read to them while they are in labor. Some moms also like to write special prayers for their babies.

    God bless!
