Our Babies are meant to stay in utero for the full term, but sometimes they try to come early. Midwives have suggested the following ways to encourage an impatient baby to stay put:
2000mg cal/mag (in a 2-to-1 ratio) supplement every day
take a probiotic
get enough omega-3 oils
good, whole-foods prenatal vitamin + extra 300 mg. Vit. C daily
salt to taste. Lack of salt is implicated in preterm birth
be sure dental health is good.
be checked for vaginosis, another link to preterm labor.
don't stand on your feet for long hours each day.
Your protein and folate levels and vit C levels need to be optimum.
Your quiet time needs to be a priority. Stress is also linked to this.
