La playlist idéale pendant l’accouchement ! - Élhée

The ideal playlist during childbirth!

Listening to music to relax during labor or to give yourself a boost of energy when pushing is a great idea that many expectant mothers already embrace. Childbirth can sometimes be long and painful so all means are good to soothe you.

Music has many virtues, both psychic and psychological. Listening to a piece of music stimulates the production of endorphins, this famous well-being molecule that reduces pain. Soft music reduces adrenaline and will help calm and relax you. Conversely, more rhythmic music will give you all the energy you need during the push.

On the menu of this playlist:

Soft songs to help you relax and better manage contractions during labor and other more punchy songs that will accompany you during the last moments of childbirth.

A little important advice: Plan a fairly long list, at least 5 or 10 hours of music! It's well known, we know when work starts but never when it ends...
