I’ve had this playlist on repeat for the last month – my final month of pregnancy! But even if you’re nowhere near being pregnant, these songs are a great backdrop to early morning devotions or a commute to work. You could even use this playlist for times of day when you’re most stressed or anxious, since the playlist is designed to point hearts to God in a time of extreme stress (labor!).
The Christian conversation surrounding labor and birth differs little from the world’s. We throw showers, give gifts, and sympathize over morning sickness; but when it comes to birth itself, the conversation remains dominated by New Age (and in some cases, secular feminist) influences. One look at the Instagram hashtags reveals that the creation, sustenance, and birth of life is a sphere dominated by secular ideology. Unless a pregnant woman is considering an abortion, modern Christianity has little to say about pregnancy or birth.
