Looking to add to your bevvie list for labor to stay hydrated? If you're not sure about sports drinks or juices, which can contain large amounts of sugars, consider coconut water! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Coconut water is made from the clear liquid inside of green coconuts. It is different from coconut milk, which is made from the water and the flesh inside of a mature coconut. Over 95 percent of coconut water is water.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We tend to call coconut water "nature's electrolyte" drink because it contains plant compounds and electrolytes such as potassium, sodium, magnesium and phosphorus. It contains fewer calories, less sodium, and more potassium than a traditional sports drink.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Give it a try, see how it tastes for you!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀




We are SOOOOOOO excited - Apple Birth & Wellness co-owner Stephanie Cruse (@flowwithstephanie) will be teaching in person for the first time since the pandemic began!

Did you know that a "clear liquids diet" when you're laboring in the hospital doesn't restrict you to only water and/or ice chips?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Broth (of any kind) is considered a clear liquid and can be really nourishing and fortifying during labor. You can either order it from the hospital room service, or bring your own! If you are a vegetarian and aren't sure if your hospital has vegetarian options, you can call to inquire, or just plan on bringing your own. Most nourishment rooms in Labor & Delivery have a microwave, so your partner/doula can even warm it up for you!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


Did you know, maternal mental health disorders, like postpartum depression, are more common than breast cancer or gestational diabetes.

The most common maternal mental health disorders are anxiety followed by depression. These disorders can be mild or so severe they become debilitating.

A study conducted during the pandemic shows that rates of clinically significant anxiety and depression symptoms have more than doubled - rising to 72% and 41% respectively - among pregnant and postpartum women.

All women are at risk though disparities are stark. Women of color and low-income mothers are faced with overwhelming stressors and not surprisingly are several times more likely to suffer from maternal anxiety or depression., AND are less likely to receive treatment than other mothers.

Maternal Mental Health Disorders onset during pregnancy, prior to pregnancy or in the postpartum period. When a mother isn’t properly supported and treated symptoms can persist for years impacting her own health and well-being and potentially her baby’s.
