Eating Dates For Labor Induction?

According to my google search, there have been studies on this. I only tried this because I had a friend tell me that she tried it and her labor lasted a couple of hours. That sounded pretty good to me! So I started eating dates. About 3-6 a day.

I don’t know about anyone else’s labor in relation to date-eating, but I can tell you that my labor lasted about 5 hours and I was in the hospital for 30 minutes before I gave birth. I think the quick labor had to do with a combination of things that I did – my diet and exercise throughout pregnancy, getting a sweep the day of birth, maybe a little luck?, etc. I don’t know if the dates really helped, but hey it can’t hurt anything to try!! I also had no tears and had a natural birth. It was the most amazing experience and words cannot describe it.
