I'm not sure if there is an old wives tale about coconut water but studies haven’t linked coconut water to causing (or easing) labor. In fact, it is a natural isotonic beverage and one of the richest sources of electrolytes. I have it multiple times a week as my go-to refreshing drink when it's hot. Did it during my first pregnancy and doing it now for my 2nd too. Replacing my usual pokka green tea :)

True and there's also no scientific explanation that baby will come out clean. The vernix is there for a reason. To protect baby from the amniotic fluid so not sure why some parents are 'proud' that their baby comes out clean and it's got nothing to do with coconut water.

29 weeks abit early to start coconut. Was always adviced to drink the last month b4 give birth. Usually 34 weeks, one coconut per week.

Omg I drinking it now.


only start when you're in 3rd trimester onwards. 1 weekly fresh green coconut only the water but not the flesh.

Eat the coconut flesh together with the water. If not, it will be heaty just eating the flesh alone.

I don’t take it frequently. My doctor told me is ok to take 1 occasionally. No worries
