  2. Dates are a healthy snack that should be eaten by every woman pregnancy or not. Our bodies are different, that it supposedly helped one pregnant mum doesn't mean it will work for every body. There's no harm in eating so you can eat and see if it works for your body.
    Date fruit contains saturated and unsaturated fatty acids such as oleic, linoleic, and linolenic acids, which are involved in saving and supplying energy and construction of prostaglandins. In addition, serotonin, tannin, and calcium in date fruit contribute to the contraction of smooth muscles of the uterus. Date fruit also has a laxative effect, which stimulates uterine contractions. I pray it works for you, just try and see for yourself.

    That's an old wives tale, but interestingly, a research was carried out on the effects of eating dates during the last four weeks of pregnancy and below are the results of the research:
    The women who ate dates were dilated an average of 3.5 cm upon admission, compared to 2 cm in those who didn’t
    96% of the women who consumed dates went into spontaneous labor and did not have to be induced (compared to only 79% of those who didn’t)
    Only a small percentage of women who consumed dates needed pitocin (28%) vs those who didn’t consume dates (47%)
    A smaller percentage of women who consumed dates had their membranes rupture in early labor compared to those who didn’t (17% vs 40%)
    Overall, the study authors concluded that:

    …the consumption of date fruit in the last 4 weeks before labour significantly reduced the need for induction and augmentation of labour, and produced a more favourable, but non-significant, delivery outcome.

  4. Some women swear by this but for my body what helps induce Labour is nipple stimulation.
