It's winter--how about soups! You can make veggie soup or meat-based soup, but you don't have to use a whole lot of meat in the soup.
Also not a birth professional, but a mom who's done a ton of reading on the subject. Quote: she had the fetal monitor around her belly, every time she'd have a contraction his heartbeat would "stop", My first thought when I read this is to wonder, did the baby's heart actually stop during contractions or did the monitor just lose the beat during contractions?
