3. Whole Grains.

Opt for whole grains like quinoa, brown rice, oats, or whole wheat bread. These foods are rich in complex carbohydrates, which provide a steady release of energy and help you stay fueled during labor.

Leafy greens like spinach, kale, and Swiss chard are packed with vitamins, minerals, and fiber. They also provide magnesium, which can help prevent muscle cramps during labor. Consider adding them to smoothies, salads, or incorporating them into your meals.
