Labor Playlist 2- Active Labor Playlist

Kari and Baby G- 31 weeks!

Yesterday, I shared with you my playlist for the part of labor where I’m supposed to stay relaxed. Today, we’re getting down to business with my active labor playlist. This playlist has a lot of energizing music that will help me stay focused and keep working hard. (Well, again it’s is a sampling of the list, the whole list has over a hundred tracks.)


Brighter Than the Sun- Colbie Calliat

This song is so happy!


Our God and All My Fountains– Chris Tomlin

I need some praise music and these up-tempo Chris Tomlin songs should do the trick.


Victory in Jesus– Tony Weeks

I’ve always loved this hymn and this version has enough swing and bounce to make it extra-energizing.


We Got the Beat– The Go-Go’s

Baby G loves this song (check out his favorite music playlist )and I do too!


You Got the Love- Candi Stanton

People may remember this song from the finale of a popular show, but it’s truly a beautiful and inspiring praise song.


Rocky Top- Osborne Brothers

This song takes me back to field days when I was a little girl and gets me ready to compete. I figure that could be a good strategy for delivery, right?


Haven’t Met You Yet- Michael Buble

I always cry thinking about my sweet Baby G, in a good way, when I hear this song. But, when I hear it in the delivery room I think it will help me keep focused on meeting my boy!


Don’t Stop- Fleetwood Mac

Hello, total optimism and encouragement song!


Suspicious Minds- Elvis Presley

What can I say? The boy and I both love Elvis.


Eye of the Tiger- Survivor and Gonna Fly Now (Theme from Rocky)

We also both LOVE Rocky! What time do you need encouragement to keep fighting more than during labor?


I Got Nerve- Hannah Montana

I still love this song and it always gets me pumped for the task ahead.


Don’t Stop Believin’- Journey

Come on, almost everyone loves this song, even if they don’t admit it publicly.


Roar- Katy Perry

This song has been such a huge encouragement to me for the past year and I couldn’t imagine not including it on my active labor playlist.


Night Train to Memphis- Everclear

This song is totally and energizer and Everclear’s take really amps it up!


Tennessee Waltz- Sam Cooke

This is one of my favorite songs and I love the brightness and energy of this version.


Do Wah Diddy Diddy- Manfred Mann

I have loved this song since Full House days when Uncle Jesse would sing it. But, now that I know an adorable story about RJ and this song, I love it even more!



I’m so excited to meet this little man! I know that labor will be hard, but I hope having an awesome active labor playlist will help me stay focused.
