This little fruit may just become a mama’s best friend. Dates are very high in potassium, and contain magnesium calcium, sulfur, iron, phosphorous, manganese, and copper as well. All of these nutrients are wonderful for a pregnant woman.
But, what’s even more remarkable is that dates may help with childbirth. According to this study, pregnant women who consumed 6 dates a day in their last month of pregnancy had better cervical dilation, less premature ruptured membranes, significantly higher spontaneous labors (meaning fewer interventions), significantly lower use of synthetic oxytocin, and a shorter first stage labor. - See more at: http://vitalitynation.com/pregnant-women-dates/#sthash.Z66ti4Mm.dpuf
