It’s you third trimester and the countdown to the big day is… well… getting close. All of the boxes are steadily getting checked off on your Before Baby Comes Must Do List. You have even packed your hospital bag.  But you are forgetting something. You forgot to make your Birth Playlist. Think about it, how many times have you needed to get rid of all the feels …. so, you blasted “that song” in your car. Or, “that song” that you hear and no matter what you catch yourself dancing.  And we won’t even talk about “that song”, you know your guilty pleasure song, the one that puts a smile on your face on even the grayest day.

A Labor Playlist may even ease your delivery.
