Labor Aid

for those of you who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, here is a little drink to aid in your labor. i made it the other day for my own upcoming labor. i'll let you know how i like it when i'm actually IN labor! lol! (recommended by our Bradley Birthing Class Instructor/doula)

Labor Aid Drink

1/3 c. fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/3 c. honey (i use raw)
1/4 t. sea salt
2 cal/mag tablets, finely crushed (or empty out powder capsules)
water to make 4 cups

stir well. let sit in fridge until labor begins. drink throughout. provides necessary sugars for strength/energy, refreshing citrus taste, cal/mag helps aid uterus in delivery, and salt helps balance your electrolytes. voila!!

ps ~ it may look a little 'interesting' when cal/mag and honey settle to bottom. just shake vigorously and it's good to go!
