LaborAide, The Drink

8 cups coconut water

A whole cup of freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice

Salt to taste, add as much salt as tastes good to you.

Sweetner, add some form of sweetner (which ever you like) raw honey, agave, maple syrup.

a few drops of liquid trace minerals drops (can be found on amazon).

You can also crush a 500 mg calcium tablet and add a 50 mg liquid magneisum supplement.

If you would like to use less sweetner, but don’t like the taste, I would suggest adding orange, pineapple, or cranberry juice to the mix.

When in labor start drinking early and often.
