I updated the labor playlist I made when I was pregnant with Max. No, I’m not pregnant again; I just wanted to update it with some newer songs and some more Christ-Centered songs.
Although my last list contained a lot of Christian songs, I really wanted a list that was full of Christian music that focused on Christ and had an encouraging message that I could share with my pregnant readers (even if you aren’t pregnant, you still might like the list; I’m going to have my husband put it on my phone for me – I love these songs).
I know how time-consuming it can be to pick out your labor music, so hopefully you like the list below and can just check that right off your list. Or hopefully this list will at least give you a jump start.

Thanks for linking up, Sarah. When I had my son I had a whole playlist ready but in the end I didn’t listen to any music at all! Pehaps next time.
Yes, the playlist is a must for labor. I like how you wrote you are not currently pregnant. I’m not preggo right now either, and rather enjoying this time. 🙂
I found your playlist on Pinterest and just created a customized Pandora based on your song suggestions. I look forward to listening to it when I labor/deliver my second son in a few weeks!
Still My Soul, Be Still by Keith & Kristyn Getty. Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah. & the classical/instrumental versions of hymns & psalms. Thank you for this playlist 🙂
Matt Maher – Lord, I Need You https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuvfMDhTyMA
Also, some oldies but goodies… 🙂 I love these words

And I have heard they are silken and can carry me”
Darrell Evans – Refuge ” You spread Your wings and cover me, underneath Your shadow I will hide away, For there I’ve found Your shelter And there I’d like to stay”
Hold me Jesus – Rich Mullins “So hold me Jesus, ’cause I’m shaking like a leaf. You have been King of my glory Won’t You be my Prince of Peace ”
You are my Strength – HIllsong
Breathe – Vineyard Worship
And to help keep your eye on the “prize” – This Time Next Year – Fernando Ortega
