Foods For Labour // Not my most flattering photo! 2am, in labour, contractions happening, wearing QANTAS Pj pants. I went home after this for another 6 or 7 hours, where majority of my labour took place. I didn’t eat or drink a thing for my entire labour (around 9 hours) because I just didn’t feel like it or think about it! (My husband may have given me a few sips of water). But keeping hydrated at a minimum will help you through your labour and you will feel a lot better for it at the end. Some studies have even shown that eating and drinking during longer labours can actually result in shorter, healthier labours.
If you are like me, you may not feel like eating at all but if you do, I’ve written a blog on some ideas for foods during labour. Link in bio.
Mums, did you eat during labour? If so, what? x
