Re: Food suggestions during labor

Usually really eating good complex carbs and a good amt of protein when approaching labor and then complex and simple carbs during labor can work well. If you have a support person w. you who has some snacks ready and can encourage you enough to eat them, many women find that eating during labor keeps their energy up better. I ate things like cheese and crackers, fresh fruit, and crackers and PB. I drank a lot of Red Rasp. Leaf tea w/ plenty of honey to sweeten it and a pinch of good quality sea salt for nutrients. Many women like to drink an electrolyte solution to keep their energy up during labor too and replace electrolytes lost. HTH!!
