Let's be honest, labor is hard work.
You wouldn't run a marathon without eating or drinking, would you? No, because that would be insane. Well labor is a marathon of hard work, regardless of how long it might be. It's important to fuel and hydrate your body properly. If not, you and your baby may begin to show signs of it. Here are some nutritious and hydrating foods and drink for your labor.
Eat, drink and birth merrily!
This lovely doula taught me what it means to be a doula on so many levels. Her kindness, compassion, knowledge and joy are inspiring. I have had the great opportunity to work along side her for countless births and when I was pregnant with my second, I could not image having anyone else as my doula. Her skills as a doula are invaluable to a laboring mother and partner, but her skills as a massage practitioner makes her that much more equipped to help clients relax and find comfort in the labor process. Jacinda is truly passionate about the mothers of El Dorado, Sacramento, Amador and Placer County having the best support emotional and physically through their pregnancy, labor and postpartum period. If you are looking for a doula, I highly recommend checking out this Placerville area doula!
