What you need
Castor bean seed (nsatsi) roots
How to prepare
When time for labour is close, take the roots and soak them in the clean water.
How to take
On the day you are going to the hospital, put the medicine together with the roots on wooden serving spoon. Ask the woman to stand by the door facing outside. Then instruct her to drink the medicine without dropping any, even the tiniest drop.
Then instruct her to take the spoon that now has the roots on it, down below her tummy. Then drop it. She must not pick it up again and that should be the moment that she leaves for the hospital.
