Pregnancy Week 35: Old Wives' Tales

Many mothers are asked to consume a glass of hot milk and two tablespoons of ghee in the last month of pregnancy as it is believed to make the birth canal more slippery and hence make the delivery easier. This is completely a myth. Consuming extra fat will just make you gain extra weight, especially around the buttocks. This can in fact, make delivery more difficult; so stay away from the excess ghee!
