A study which appeared in a recent issue of Pain Management Nursing indicates that music can "reduce the sensation of labor pain and delay the emotional distress that may accompany childbirth". According to HealthDayNews, the study notes that better pain management during labor may speed a woman's recovery after childbirth and improve the mother-infant relationship. See article here.

Speaking of music, I would like to recommend Ravel's Bolero. It completely got me through my last labor.
