Not gonna lie, I loved making mix tapes back in the day. So when it came time to create a playlist of soothing sounds to help get me through the labor process (one of the most important events of my life!) I took some time to go through my music collection and sift out my favorite songs. I knew I would want sweet ballads about love as well as “I am Woman, Hear Me Roar”-type tunes… I was in the midst of pushing a human out of my vagina, after all. And I think I succeeded. Now, obviously music is in the ear of the beholder, so in case our music tastes don’t gel, let this list just serve as inspiration for creating your own.
Making the “ultimate mix tape” was one of my favorite pre-baby projects!
