A teaspoon of raw, organic apple cider vinegar(or a bit more to your taste), to a cup of water once or twice a day during pregnancy, especially during the last two months, will greatly improve the birthing experience. I first read this in " Natural Goat Care", by Pat Coleby. The apple cider vinegar has potassium and the other trace elements for the proper working of muscles-i.e.the uterus. It also increases the blood supply to the pelvic area which is a good thing because a lack of blood supply causes a constriction of the blood vessels in that area which leads to dystokia(difficult birth). In fact I got a lot of good health advice from my goat book-they get the same problems as us in the domesticated environment.
