Episode 32 - Consuming dates for labour

After a big few previous episodes Mel and B have recorded this short and sweet little episode on consuming dates during pregnancy. Many women eat dates during the later stages of their pregnancy because they believe that it has an impact on labour outcomes. Mel and B look into the research on this, do dates make labour shorter? And will the recipes that Mel recommends be any good? You’ll have to listen to find out.
