Homemade Labour Ginger Ice Pops
To fight off nausea during delivery and to keep myself hydrated I prepared a batch of homemade ginger pops when I reached 37 weeks.
What you’ll need:
- Ginger tea bags or fresh ginger
- Boiled water
- Ice cube tray (small cubes preferably as the whole cube will need to fit in your mouth)
- Honey (optional)
- Freezer safe container
- Make a large pot of ginger tea. Add a scoop of raw honey if you like it sweet. Let the tea steep all day or until it reaches room temperature.
- Pour into ice cube tray and freeze.
- After the cubes freeze pop them into a freezer safe container and leave in the freezer until you want them during labour. You can also take the container to the hospital in a cooler bag with some ice packs.
- If you only have one ice cube tray just put the extra tea in the fridge until you can make a second batch.
- During labour ask your husband or family to pop these into your mouth as needed. These were super delicious and a nice treat during labour all the while combating the nausea I was experiencing.
Enjoy! Oh! Make sure that whoever is attending your birth knows you have these in the freezer :)
