Summary

We propose to play the song "Weightless" during epidural placement on an iPhone set to medium volume. The song (all 6 continual parts) is 43 minutes long and will be started just before epidural placement and stopped just after end of procedure. The control group will be expectant mothers who do not have "Weightless" playing during their epidural placement. The goal is to determine if playing "the most relaxing song in the world" helps to reduce laboring parturients anxiety and improve their overall satisfaction with the experience.
