study that showed a correlation between eating six dates a day during the four weeks leading to one's due date and a significantly shorter and easier labor. Patrick went out the next day and bought a bunch of dates for me to start munching on all day. :)
I like dates, don't get me wrong, but six dates a day is actually quite a commitment! I had no idea that six dates is actually about 330 calories and nearly 90 grams of sugar. I'm trying to space them out throughout the day to make it more manageable. Definitely not ideal but I'm willing to try almost anything for an easier labor!
Have you heard of any techniques to prepare for a better labor? With delivery day just around the corner I'm open to suggestions.
