Dates, Not Just A Yummy Snack

Have you ever thought to snack your way to an easier labor? The benefits of eating dates during pregnancy… I started this at my 35 week mark, so let’s see if it will work!

🌸Shorter first phase of labor

🌸Greater cervical dilation compared

🌸More successful rates of labor induction

🌸Avoid pitocin

🌸Go into labor spontaneously

Dates have an oxytocin-like effect on the body, leading to increased sensitivity of the uterus. It also helps stimulate uterine contractions, and reduces postpartum hemorrhage the way oxytocin does. They also found that it contains many nutritional benefits for pregnant mamas.

Organic Raspberry Leaf Tea:🍃

🌸Shorter Labor. Tones the uterus, which makes contractions more effective thus making labor easier and potentially less painful. (note: it will not induce labor. It only makes labor more effective once it has already begun)

🌸Increases milk supply

🌸Helps bring the uterus back to it’s usual size after delivery

🌸Less post-partum bleeding and can help prevent hemorrhage
