Holy moly, it’s March. That means our baby is due! Next week in fact! (Insert stunned emoji faces) I can’t believe she could really come any day now! And I can’t believe that soon I will be experiencing labor for the first time. I have to admit, that sounds pretty scary! That’s why I really wanted to create a calming birthing playlist full of music that would remind me that God is taking care of me.
Of course, when the time comes, who knows what it will be like. Perhaps it will go so fast that I won’t have time to play any music. Or perhaps it will take so long, I’ll get tired of hearing the same songs over and over! I may love having music playing in the background to soothe me, or I may find it really annoying. Who knows!
But either way, I wanted to have a playlist created in case I did want some calming music to play during contractions. I love the idea of having worship music playing, especially when Raylee takes her first breath of earthly air.
