“It is a usual experience that the difficulties of labor are greatly decreased and the strength and vitality of the child enhanced where the mother has adequately reinforced nutrition..” Price, W. Nutrition and Physical Degeneration

Adequately reinforced nutrition refers to a diet containing “milk, green vegetables, sea foods, organs of animals and a reinforcement of the fat-soluble vitamins by very high vitamin butter and high vitamin cod liver oil.” Price, W. Nutrition and Physical Degeneration (High vitamin butter oil can be replaced by 1-4 daily tablespoons of yellow grassfed butter.) Such a diet is described on the Pregnancy and Health Diet Page.
