One of the best ways to deal with labour related discomfort is to be eating while in labour. Munching on your favourite snacks could provide for positive distractions thereby, helping you deal with the grind. Doctors, however, would prefer you to confine to certain guidelines with respect to eating while in labour. For instance, if you are in complex labour, you might be allowed only liquids for consumption and so on. Once your doctor shows a green flag on eating your choice of items, you can instruct your nurses and midwives accordingly, to provide you with something you’ve been yearning for.
When you plan your schedule for eating while in labour, always remember that your metabolism would progressively slow down at this time. Therefore, prefer eating in small quantities at regular intervals for speedy digestion.
