Forget yoga and spicy foods, this is the latest fad being credited for bringing along labour.
According to a video published on Buzzfeed Bring Me Facebook page, a Los Angeles restaurant is famous for ‘The Salad’, which people ‘people believe magically induces labour’.
Cafe owner Carrie Ladou said: “28 years ago, a pregnant lady came in and ate the salad and started having contractions, so this has become part of pop culture. We have anywhere from 5 – 20 pregnant ladies a day come in and order the salad.
While Ladou says they haven’t made any claims about The Salad, their customers tell them it works, with many of them sharing their story in the video.
So what’s in it?
Romaine lettuce, watercress, walnuts and Gorgonzola cheese, but the key is in the balsamic vinaigrette, which they say contains crumbled sundried tomatoes and a special mix of herbs and spices.
