Eating During Labor?

I vividly remember my craving during labor. My mom asked, "what do you want to eat after the baby is born?"  I responded with a very specific request of a hard roll with honey ham, cheese, lettuce, tomato, olives, mayo and mustard! I was famished and missed cold cuts during my pregnancy! The thought of heating them up beforehand just didn't appeal to me, so I waited, a long 9 months!  It's been 4 years, but I remember thinking, it was the best sandwich I ever tasted!

As any mom knows, labor is hard work! Besides being exhausted from birthing a human, you've likely been deprived of an actual meal for countless hours.

BUT, good news that might sway you to have another one! This new study suggests, a light meal during labor, may be beneficial!!! 

Hallelujah! If I were expecting, I'd be calling my OB/GYN right now!
