anyone ever here of cloves & allspice tea?

a friend of my moms told me i should go buy some cloves and allspice boil it and make a tea, drink it warm and not to drink anything cold for a while after, and that this would help me get into active labor, because they think im stuck in the early stages of labor. just wondering if anyone had heard of this? or maybe its a belizean thing? thats where im from, and where my mom and her friend live.

  • Nothing really starts labor for you, you could always try but I wouldnt really bet on it.

  • The L&D nurse told me not to drink herbal or manjanilla tea because it could cause contractions, but in your case it might be different. I don't know what Manjanilla tea is though sorry haha.
