Does eating dates daily help in natural birth?

Studies show that eating dates in late pregnancy decreased the length of labor. It also reduced the need for labor-accelerating medication with no adverse side effects. Expecting women can feel confident in eating dates daily to increase a natural birth. However, we still recommend consulting your OB-GYN before consuming them.
