What do you eat when in labour?
31-03-2013 11:06 #2
I was so sick throughout labour so couldn't stomach much. I drank Gatorade and in the later stages I ate a bit of plain pasta as I was starving but still felt ill. But I had packed a couple of peanut butter sandwiches, bananas, apples, nuts and muesli bars. I ate 2 sandwiches within an hour of her being born though, I was RAVENOUS!

I didn't feel like eating during labour at all. With DS2 i ate an apple first thing in the morning as i just woke up and my waters broke. The ex bought me a salad wrap for lunch after he was born.

I didn't eat at all during established labour. I managed a sandwich during pre labour but couldn't even stomach the thought of food after that. I just sipped water

I had a banana, some freddos, nut bars, and a couple of bites of a cheese croissant. Also drank green cordial and orange juice.

Early on, whatever food the hospital brought me (sandwiches I think?) & later, just sucked in barley sugars, cause I wasn't hungry....and even later on nothing, in case I needed a c section (which I did in the end). By the time I got out of recovery & back to the ward, I was STARVING & it was 3 am & no food....! My midwife managed to scam a sandwich left over from the previous nights dinner service & some yoghurt.

I didn't feel like eating during labor.
I tried eating something with DS2, but was really too distracted by the pain I was in.
I was pretty damn hungry after labor though.

I didn't eat through any of my labours. Food was the last thing on my mind (apart from ice because i was soo hot).
