Labor Drinks and Energy Pick - Me -Ups

Women have been making energy drinks for the demands of labor for a long time. Brew up one of these wonderful drinks well before your due date. Freeze them in ice cube trays, then when you are in labor, pop them into a wide mouth sports bottle, add water, and sip throughout labor to renew your energy. 

Labor Aid Drink:

1/3 cup fresh lemon juice

1/3 cup honey (or to taste)

1/4 tsp sea salt

2 calcium/magnesium tablets, crushed

water to make 4 cups

Red Raspberry Leaf Tea:
4 tea bags brewed to a quart of water

honey to taste

Other drinks to keep your energy up: G2, Recharge (same as gatorade, but without the corn syrup). 

Honey sticks or honey squeezed from a honey bear onto a spoon is also a great way to help raise blood sugar and get a boost of energy.
