La playlist idéale pendant l’accouchement !

The ideal playlist during childbirth!

Listening to music to relax during labor or to give yourself an energy boost when pushing is a great idea that many moms-to-be 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 molecule of well-being that reduces pain. Soft music decreases adrenaline and will help you soothe and relax. 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 more punchy ones that will accompany you during the last moments of childbirth.

A little advice that matters: Plan a fairly long list, at least 5 or 10 hours of music! It is well known, we know when the work begins but never when it ends...
