No. Most women are not allowed to eat while in labor, other than clear liquids. The reason is that if your baby is not tolerating labor and a cesarean section is performed, it is dangerous to administer anesthesia to someone who was just eaten. There’s a chance she can vomit during the surgery and aspirate gastric liquid into the lungs which can cause an infection.
Not generally. Though this is exhausting work, the chance that you could hit a snag in labor and need an urgent c-section make it unwise to eat during labor.Though sometimes done awake with a good epidural or spinal block, these don't always set up properly & they may need to put you to sleep.Your stomach contents could end up in your lungs during the process.
