My Birth Playlist

When I went into labor in November, I asked my husband to bring me my computer because I needed some music. I needed songs whose lyrics could encourage me and connect with my heart. This playlist was in my itunes and it seemed to fit the bill. These are the songs that were on repeat for those several hours before and right after Norah was born. It turned out to be the perfect mix of songs of surrender, strength, and purpose. Thank you to you whose music is on here, your songs gave me courage!

Music played a huge part in helping me to relax and focus on God during my labor. I also loved "Your Hands". :) Mainly I listened to "Sing Over Me" (worship lullabies), which was just perfect. It was incredible to listen to "How Deep the Father's Love For Us" and consider Jesus' sacrifice while I was "sacrificing" my own body to deliver my son. Beautiful.
