Vegan Labouraide Recipe

Still haven't given birth... am 41 weeks now as I write this! 

My midwife suggested I make some labouraide to take with me for the birth to help with electrolytes, sugars, and staying hydrated while in labour. 

I looked high and low for a completely vegan recipe, but I couldn't find one. 

So with a couple of minor tweaks I was able to make my own vegan version of labouraide!

This is just a rough guide to quantities you can make up as little or as much as you like and, as I say in the video, I'm not a huge fan of coconut water that we get here in Aus (I love fresh coconuts in Bali and Mexico though) so I did a mix with water. 


250ml coconut water

750ml water

2 drops rescue remedy 

2 Tbs coconut sugar (I use the Niulife syrup) 

2 lemons juiced 

Himalayan or celtic salt to taste 


  1. Combine all ingredients in a pitcher. 
  2. Freeze ready for you to take to the hospital / birth centre

There you go a super simple and easy recipe for you to have a natural hydration drink for while you are labouring.
