This is interesting... both times my MWs put me on a very high protein diet. With my daughter, she was not born en caul, but I had an extra 'fore-sac' of amniotic fluid, so my water broke on it's own, and then the second sac I eventually let them hook literally seconds before I began pushing.My son came a lot faster, and he was born totally en caul (but not with an additional caul cap, just born completely in his intact sac). I didn't get to check it out because it was full of meconium so they broke it quickly once he was out.

eta: I also tried to get lots of vitamin c rich foods to help with iron absorption, but neither of the teas for me.
