If you are in your last few weeks of pregnancy, I have some news for you!
Did you know that eating 6 date fruit per day for the last 4 weeks of pregnancy could have an impact on your labor? A 2008 study at Jordan University of Science and Technology indicates that women who consume dates late in pregnancy have shorter labors, dilate more quickly, and have increased incidence of intact membranes. Date-eating moms-to-be are also more likely to go into spontaneous labor than their non-date-eating counterparts and were less likely to need augmentation of labor or induction.
Sounds like a tasty way to a better birth to me! Buon-Appetît!
