Music, Book, And Movie Recommendations

I suggest that you keep yourself open to what feels “good” to you during your pregnan-cy and follow that path. For example, if you hear a song that you like on the radio, Shazam it (a mobile app), and start putting together a playlist for yourself. I’ve listed be-low some of the songs that I’ve been enjoying. You can take a look and even listen to the ones you pick during the delivery.

Music

I recommend Emma Amanita‘s Spotify playlists.

Snatam Kaur, The Essentials – Always good for relieving stress. I still sing these songs to my daughter as lullabies at night.

Krishna Das – I’ve really enjoyed these songs as I’m a fan of Indian culture.

Movies

You should be careful of what you watch during your pregnancy. As I’ve already men-tioned, if you are agitated by action movies or strange news, don’t watch them. Visuals that make you feel like you’re on cloud nine, make you laugh and think are the best ones for you at this time.

The Business of Being Born – Abby Epstein, Documentary, 2008

Baby Boom – Charles Shyer, 1987

What to Expect When You Are Expecting – Kirk Jones, 2012

Books

Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth (2003) – The fundamental information is conveyed per-fectly in Ina May Gaskin’s book and her style of expressing the course of the process evokes trust in the reader. Personally, I skipped over the many birth stories because I wanted to focus on my own experience. But it might be nice to read a few of them to see some positive birthing experiences.


The Happy Child, Linda Blair (2009) – I came across this book while I was dreaming of the kind of child I wanted to raise, bought it, and found it useful.
