Low risk births are just that, low risk.  The chances of needing an emergency cesarean birth are diminished when you are not using any medical interventions to either numb you from the pain or augment the labor pattern artificially.  When you listen to your body’s needs, you may crave sips of coconut water, bites of fruit and a bit of a protein bar to help refuel as you navigate your marathon.

From homeopathic to essential oils - see what I take with me for my natural labor and delivery
