    Default Music for labour

    Hi girls

    I'm planning a homebirth in May of my first baby. Would love to hear some suggestions for music in labour.

    Would like 2 play lists

    -ambient music

    and

    -upbeat music with a good rhythm.

    so far to start with I have Enya (lol) Norah Jones, Kimbra, Aphex twin, Fleet foxes, Bjork, jeff buckley, Gotye, seeker lover keeper.

    Mostly looking for suggestions on ambient music as I keep getting creepy dark sounding music. Would like some gentle relaxation style music with no vocals.

    TIA

    Tubular bells by mike oldin! I had that playing during my labour. It's ambient in some sections and upbeat in others. I also went searching in my mums CD collection and found some instrumental music. There were some pan flute songs. I can't think of who did them. I also had Gregorian masters of chant. They have 3 cds

    Tubular Bells. Lol
    I think it's an awesome song and it is a good beat. But I only ever associate it with the Exorcist. Lol

    Gregorian is awesome though for calming.
