This was mentioned in the UO but also has been on my mind. I typically stay away from anecdotal advice and I hear so many theories on eating certain foods before giving birth.
So, what's your yay or nay?
I heard about raspberry leaf tea and medjoul dates. They say drinking/eating them the weeks leading to birth cab help strengthen the uterus and can reduce the risk for intervention and even reduce pain. I did drink the tea last time and had very manageable pain and short L&D, but who knows! My thinking was that it tastes good and if there's a chance it helps, why not.
Is anyone else going to consume these so called magical foods to help ease labor? Or does anyone know of actual evidence supporting it? I read about it and seems like they do contain vitamins and minerals that are good for it, but it's very hard to know if it makes a difference or not.
