If a women wants to eat etrog jelly because some consider it a segulah for an easy child birth, what is a proper kavanna?

Answer:

Though not an expert on segulos, I cannot think of a better kavana, however, than davening to Hashem that the birth should be an easy birth. 

It is vital not to “disconnect” a segulah from prayer to Hashem, for at the end of the day He is the One who provides, and not the segulah.

Therefore, davening is surely the best kavana.

Best wishes.
