Homemade Labour Ginger Ice Pops

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
  • Teapot
  • Ice cube tray (small cubes preferably as the whole cube will need to fit in your mouth)
  • Honey (optional)
  • Freezer safe container

Steps:

  1. 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.
  2. Pour into ice cube tray and freeze.
  3. 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.
  4. If you only have one ice cube tray just put the extra tea in the fridge until you can make a second batch.
  5. 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 :)
