  • i had a pregnancy relaxation CD that i took along with me and it probably played once but then i was too into my labor that i didn't notice it playing, or notice its absence once it stopped. but i still think it was a good idea ;) i wish i remembered the name of it because it was so relaxing during my pregnancy too! i bought it used on

  • My SO plays guitar and I had a CD of him playing classical songs. But I will tell you it didn't help me at all. I ended up having them turn it off because it was only annoying me and making me not be able to concentrate. I wish you luck in your birth though.

  • lol I watched old reruns of Green Acres when I was in labor at home and then when I went to the hospital I turned on my soaps. Kept my mind off the pain more than any type of music!
