There is a controversial opinion about the miraculous abilities of crimson leaves to stimulate labor activity. It is assumed, that the vegetative broth promotes expansion of a uterus before sorts. In other words, a crimson drink prepares a female organ for a generic extension, which allows it to open up to the right size at the appointed time.
