On the twelfth day after my due date my true love gave to me: a baby, finally! Pots of “Eisenkrauttee” (verbena tea) infused with ginger, cinnamon and cloves left me feel rather christmassy in August. It’s a mixture that’s supposed to help induce labour. It didn’t help in my case though and in the end I had to be induced at the hospital. But if you’re looking for a nice Christmas tea and/or would like to bring on labour naturally, I’m sharing the recipe below!
