A couple of weeks ago, I took my 6-year-old and 9-year-old to a Weezer concert. We had so much fun, dancing and singing to the songs we love. It was my first time seeing Weezer, and for both boys (barring my 9-year-old's Sting concert at 11-months-old) it was their first show. It is definitely something we want to do again.
I had planned to labor to music during all three of my babies' births, but at the time, it didn't come to pass. Many women are helped through their labors by the comfort of the music they connect with. Often couples will pick out a lot of different songs to load up onto their MP3 players or to make a CD. The key to an effective compilation is to make sure there are varied types of songs included. Slow songs are helpful when a woman needs to rest or wants to drown out any background noise she may feel surrounded by. Upbeat songs can be helpful while a woman may be walking, stomping, rocking, or even pushing. Songs that a woman has a personal connection to also have a place in this repertoire -- take, for example, the first song she and her partner danced to, a song played at their wedding, or a song that reminds a woman of a time, person, or event in her life that brings her strength.
