RECIPE – Say no to Gatorade! Say yes to Labour Aid!

Here is a recipe that is so easy to make and store, allowing you peace of mind that you’ll have your super juice ready for your birth!

Labour Aid Drink


Say no to Gatorade! 

This amazing drink replaces electrolytes and hydration, which is important as dehydration can slow labour! It also provides energy during the birthing process, taking small sips after every contraction. 


*TIP* try to pee every hour to make space in the belly, making it easier to push baby out!
