Why this recipe is great for expectant Mums

Did you know many cultures and believe dates are a fantastic food to eat while pregnant.
A study from the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology in 2011 found the following effects for date eaters too:

First stage labour was shorter
83% of those whom ate dates had their amniotic sac in place at admission (This can reduce the chance of infection).
Cervical dilatation at hospital admission was higher in mothers that ate dates.
Cesarian rate was slightly smaller in the date eating group

Please note the women in the study ate between 3 โ€“ 7 dates daily.

It is always essential to remember that anything you consume should be held in moderation. The same applies to dates, and you should only have a handful a day, not more.
