According to a new study in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology – Women who ate dates daily for their entire pregnancy were more dilated when labor began , less likely to need medication to get labor going and their labor tended to be an average of 7 hours shorter then the non date eaters . The study found a compound in the dates that imitates oxytocin ( helps with labor) … So girls start eating those dates !!!!
Here is my healthy pregnancy date smoothie recipe –
2-4 dates ( depending on how sweet you like it )
1 Tablespoon of almond butter
1/2 – cups of oats
1 – tablespoon of spirulina
– Almond milk – your desired consistency
