Labour room playlist created by Spotify, would you download it?
Spotify is going to desperate lengths to try and impress its customers, and the latest stunt is a bit of a strange one!
The online music giant has now created a ‘labour room’ playlist, but would you listen to it while giving birth?
The playlist has been designed to soothe women whilst they are in labour. You can find it under the title of ‘Birthing Playlist’ and you can find songs such as, ‘Under Pressure’, ‘Just Breathe’ by Pearl Jam, Norah Jones and James Bay.
And I can confirm that a lot of thought and consideration has gone into making the playlist, expert help was even brought in to make sure the company got it just right!Jacques Moritz, New York City-based gynaecologist and assistant professor of obstetrics and gynaecology at Weill Cornell Medical College, helped the app make the list after noting that as many as one in seven of his own patients create their own before their due date.
Moritz said: “Hospitals, particularly delivery rooms, can be noisy and disconcerting… a good playlist helps distract mothers from these sounds and better manage fear and pain.”
