I've been told by relatives and friends that having some foods help dilate easily. These include:
Dates, figs, ginger tea, pineapple, fish etc. basically foods that increase metabolism naturally.. Warm in nature.
one of the fellows second it with her birth story and said she was 5-6cm dilated at home with her 2 pregnancies without any significant pain and contractions when she visited hospital for routine checkup at 39weeks. 3-4hrs of labor and she was holding her baby in arms.
Any thoughts and experiences?
I'm a First time mom and have no clue what will help n what not. Read the primrose oil thread lately.
