Labourade Powder

  • $4200


Labour is hard, physical work. It's definitely a marathon and not a sprint.

Remember, the uterus is one big muscle. Working over and over for hours. 

Our body requires electrolytes for hydration and muscle function. They are easily lost through sweating and vomiting - two things common in labour.

Staying nourished and hydrated can make the world of difference to your stamina and your labour's progression.

As a doula I'm always feeding and hydrating my clients when they're in labour. I've seen firsthand the difference it makes to their physical and mental resolve. 

Women who are dehydrated and low in energy often experience a slowing or stalling of their labour. They then typically receive IV fluids and other interventions.

Did you know your body can't be adequately hydrated on water alone? It needs electrolytes as well.

Also known as nature's Gatorade, coconut water contains 5 key electrolytes: sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. It has more potassium that 1 banana or 15 sport drinks! It has an osmolality identical to our own blood, meaning its super hydrating and helps our body actually absorb the water it's taking on.

Labourade contains the essential minerals Calcium and Magnesium. At the correct ratio these two work together to aid efficient muscular contractions and to prevent muscle fatigue. Remember, your uterus is one big muscle!

Himalayan Sea Salt provides more than 60 trace minerals and plays an important role of balancing the stress hormones during physical activity. It also reduces adrenaline levels.
