I don't know what I would have done without my sips of cherry coke during labor-I'm glad my midwife in the hospital left it entirely up to me to decide what to take in.

I only ever heard you shouldn't be eating a hugh meal right before. but if you labor a long time, no food means no energy and anybody that doesn't eat is insane. thankfully I had a c-section.

That is interesting.... when I had my girls in the spring of 2006 and 2007 I was not even allowed to have ice chips, my first labor was 21 hours, so I was starving and SO thirsty, my second labor was much shorter (3 hours in the hospital and she was there) but I was not offered anything either. I know midwives do allow eating and drinking but more then likely those women are chosing a form of natural delivery. Both of my births ending great, but I sure would have loved something to drink or eat with my first!!:)

I've given birth to two girls... one in 1985 and again in 2003. In both cases was only allowed ice chips. I was never hungry but I was sooo thirsty!!! Would have loved to had a class of ice water! I would pass on the food... not so much because of the fear of needing to go under but the fear of something else:)

I am so tired of hearing about studies! Is this where all our government money is going? Every Andrea Cambern story starts with "a new study shows"! Then everybody believes what they hear! All our new laws come from what a study shows. Get a life people!
