Sorry if this has been done to death - I did a quick search but couldn't find anything!!!

I'm looking for some chilled albums to put on my iPhone to listen to whilst hopefully in the pool - I gave birth to my daughter to Jose Gonzales - Heartbeats which was beautiful and still makes me well up now, she's 6 now and loves 'her' song lol

I work in a maternity unit and will never forget the woman who had the radio on and gave birth to sex is on fire, fortunately she wasnt aware lol

I like dido, cranberries, adele, coldplay, snow patrol etc... Any ideas?? What have you got on your iPhone?

I had a rousing bit of Haydn choral music for DS1. DS2 arrived in such a hurry that music was way down the priority list.

I had a massive pile of cds picked out ready for dd's birth. It was really varied - The cure, rage against the machine, led zepellin, Slayer, morcheeba, Adele, David Bowie, Amy Winehouse and scissor sisters grin

When I was in labour dh asked what I wanted to listen to and I growled at him blush so we didn't use any of them!
