  • Used this sept 5 2020 during my labor it was a beautiful water birth had my baby within 30 to 40 min of arriving to the birth center.

  • I got this saved ready for my labour in just under 4 weeks time. So relaxing and I am feeling so calm so hoping it will work on the day xx

  • I played this for my rabbit bc she was preggo and when she came out of the nesting box there was nothing but poop so I guess she wasn’t preggo.��

  • Just want to say a massive thank you for this. I listened to this on loop during my 18 hour labour and managed to use this and breathe through the first 14 hours without any pain relief. To me, this is my birth song and I love it!

  • I get really bad period cramps and I’m trying to not use any pain meds to deal with it. This was so great! It really does help. Will definitely use this in my next pregnancy, training my mind and body to deal with pain without medication. Thanks for this soothing and amazing upload!

  • I am about to give birth to my first baby any moment from now. This music helps me relax. Please pray for my safe delivery of our baby.
