I am 36 weeks today and I have already had one successful natural VBA2C. I am doing another natural birth (in a hospital but with a great OB). My first was a very long labor and I was not allowed to eat.. only given clear liquids. At the end I wound up with an IV and I was exhausted from so long w/o anything to eat. That being said what are some of the best snacks for labor that worked for you?
I am also interested if any of you have used essential oils or other natural things (other than positions, showers, etc) to help with pain management during labor. I did not know much about them with my last. If so what did you use and when?
