We had a bunch of my favorite cds in the delivery room. Of course I kept wanting the one song we didnt happen to have with us It really helped me focus.

Re: Music in the delivery room?

Now that I've had three, I'd say no. I like it pretty quiet. Although, during my second birth, my husband was watching a ball game (not exactly quiet) when the midwife said it would be a couple more pushes--he thought she was kidding and continued to watch TV--DD was born after 4 pushes total!
(DS1 was 17 hours of labor followed by 3 hours of pushing).
DS2 (baby three) didn't take long either, but during labor I asked everyone to be somewhat quiet. The lights were turned down and everyone was pretty calm. I think the momma really sets the mood for the rest.

I took a mp3 player with me but I didn't use it. I went into labor at 11:30 at night so I tried to sleep some.

Well I didn't with my first and am not sure if I will this time or not , I know that there were times there that it was very quiet and it seemed good for those very painful contractions so I may take some just to try but I may not end up using it , I donno .

Until the contraction got intense- then i thik they turned t off. But when we were still having fun we listened to Salt N Pepa "Push it!"
I wanted to listen to Belle & Sebastian, to stay calm and positive.

I listened to U2 and Cat Stevens, but company made it pretty much worthless. It wasn't on or thought of near the end and during pushing though.
I will probably take music again this time, something relaxing, maybe classical-def Cat Stevens!
