Ok gals, labor cookies...do they really work??
Well, I can attest to how well they work. And to how delish they are! I made these with my second child at 39 weeks. And I'm going to be blatantly honest here...
I ate 13 cookies
in one sitting.
Because when am I ever going to have the chance to eat that many cookies
EVER AGAIN in my life?!
I ate those scrumptious labor cookies and I ate them well. And get this, THEY WORKED!!
About 5 hours later, labor began...and 12 hours after that, we had a beautiful baby girl, who probably had molasses in her poop...no wait, that was meconium. Too much??
A side of caution: they may just cause indigestion...
What pregnant mama would say no to the request to eat a dozen labor cookies?
It couldn’t hurt to try, right?
They taste like Christmas!
Are you desperate to go into labor that you will try something a little crazy and make these cookies?
Are you going to give these cookies a try? Maybe ask your partner or mom to make them! Now go get those ingredients! I'll be here waiting...
I would love to hear your thoughts on how they tasted for you!

Be well-prepared for the day that baby arrives.
And if you try these cookies, baby day may be closer than you think!!
