I’m going to tell you about one of my secret weapons.  Evidence Based Birth has an amazing website with tons of birth information.  I just love it.  I learn so much from it.

During one of my prenatal visits with mama’s we generally discuss nutrition and some of the foods and beverages that have been proven to help with labor or the postpartum period.  One of those foods is dates.  It is weirdly wonderful that these sweet little fruits can ease your birth, and it seems to be true.  But don’t take my word for it.  Check this out.
