Were you allowed to eat during labor?

Sometimes labor is a few hours and sometimes it’s 40+. Maybe it’s just because I’m so hungry during my pregnancy but I’m concerned about not being able to eat during the lighter stages of labor. I’ve had friends that were only allowed to eat ice chips and were terribly hungry at times.

What was your experience? Comments to know when you were allowed to eat, when there were restrictions and where/how long ago you delivered would be helpful for me to get a gauge of current trends.

I’ll be delivering in a hospital with an OBGYN. I’m low risk.
