My midwife recommends having honey sticks for quick energy during labor. We're vegan and don't do honey. Does anyone have a suggestion for something vegan that would have a similar effect?
Thanks in advance!
Frozen grapes. Wash them and let them get totally dry. If there's any water on them it will form ice crystals and they might stick together. Freeze them on a wax paper covered cookie sheet. When they're frozen put them in Ziplock brand (BPA free) freezer bags or other freezer containers.
Though I don't know if they work. I had 2 hours of wondering if I was in labor, an hour of discomfort, and an hour of pushing. We used our stash of grapes after the baby was born.
Thanks, everyone, for your responses.
Josamen,they're not graham crackers - honey sticks are little packets of flavored honey that people eat like candy or use as sweeteners.
I ran your ideas by our doula/birth assistant and she especially liked the maple syrup idea. So I just went out and bought some. Thanks. everyone!
