Music for your Birth & Relaxation

birth resources blog post music for labour and birth

In our Hypnobubs Hypnobirthing Online Course, one of the many tools we teach is music for your birth and relaxation. We provide Hypnobubs mamas with hypnobirthing tracks throughout the program in which they become conditioned and associate the background music with deep relaxation. 

Music moves us emotionally and also physically. It is an important tool in our toolkit, as we prepare for a beautiful, calm, and very positive birth.

Research has shown that the use of music during labour is beneficial in many ways. 

  • Music can reduce pain. Music can help the birthing mother get into a deep state of relaxation allowing the birthing mother’s hormones such as oxytocin to flow which helps move labour along smoothly and manage surges.  
  • Music can help create a calm birthing environment. Your birthing environment plays a huge role during labour, music allows you to control the mood of the environment so you can stay in your bubble of comfort. 

We have a variety of background music to help you during labour and birth including our world-famous Surge of the Sea’ which provides professionally guided self-hypnosis & relaxation, especially designed for use during pregnancy and childbirth.  Click here to purchase our Hypnobubs Tracks. 

If you love the background music from ‘Surge of the Sea’ – Hypnosis for Childbirth’ and our other tracks; then you can now purchase the music by world-renowned Australian meditation music artist –  Christopher Lloyd Clarke, to use as background music during your own birth or for general relaxation before and after your birth.

Here are the names of the tracks which can all be purchased from The Guided Meditation Site. Go to the MUSIC DOWNLOADS tab – then MEDITATION MUSIC and scroll down to see all of his long-play meditation tracks.

Christopher meditates himself, so I know he comes from a very authentic place when creating his beautiful music. 

Tip: I recommend that pregnant mamas avoid the binaural tracks.

Sometimes during birth, we don’t wish to hear ‘words’,  just music. We always recommend that you have a playlist of tracks and music combined and then another playlist of music only. 

Alternatively, you may already have some meditation-style music you would like to use for your birthing playlist. Whatever tracks you use, ensure that they make you feel relaxed and positive… that’s the vibe we want to create in our birthing room.

We have also created a Spotify playlist for your benefit! We have a hypnobirthing playlist to utilise throughout your birth both with and without vocals. Click here to access.

Don’t forget your baby is being conditioned to associate these tracks with relaxation, too. So you can play this music when your hypnobub is born and many mothers tell me their baby’s just love it! 

When listening to your hypnobirthing MP3’s and music we highly recommend SleepPhones headphones. SleepPhones are the world’s most comfortable headphones for sleeping. The luxuriously soft headband contains thin removable speakers to play any type of music, audiobooks, meditation, white noise, or talk radio. Regular headphones and ear buds are simply not comfortable to wear all night long. SleepPhones® are fully padded with nothing sticking into the ears and are comfortable even for side sleepers.
