Birthing a baby is hard work. Being pregnant is hard work. That is why it is so important to stay hydrated during pregnancy and labor.
I go to the gym a few times a week. I remind myself that I’m training for a marathon, a birth marathon. I was in labor with Jude for over 20 hours. While I tried to remain focus on the task at hand my midwife and doula kept reminding me to drink so my body would have the sustenance it needed to finish strong. As I prepare for the birth of baby number 2 I am reminded how important it is to have plenty of liquids available to drink during labor.
The Nalgene Multidrink will be perfect for a long, or hopefully short, day of labor. It gives me the option to drink through the pivoting straw for sipping or loop top for big gulps. The pivoting straw also has a leak-proof lock which is nice with a 2 year old bouncing around the house. The Multidrink is bpa free yet still impact resistant and dishwasher safe. It holds 20oz. so I won’t have to get as many refills. Until delivery day I will be using the Multidrink at the gym while I train for my birthing marathon.
