Labour can be scary, especially as a first time Mom-to-be. I know I was. I attended classes, read until my brain exploded, and asked so many annoying questions. I’m here to tell you what worked for me (and what didn’t) so you don’t have to go through labour before actually going through labour. I’ve condensed these tips and tricks into a wee checklist for you to download down below to make it nice and easy.
*note: I ain’t no Doctor – this is just worked for me and many other Mamas I know.
What to eat
I started craving dates in my third trimester and didn’t think too much of it and blamed it on my Persian roots. I would end every dinner (and sometimes lunch) with tea and dates and seriously couldn’t help myself. And then I came across this study and was like woah my body is SMART. I’ll give you the non-scientific/laments terms/coles note version of the study to spare you the reading time as to why you need to eat dates when you’re pregnant too!
