Tamera, Still Pregnant, Shares Her Experience With "The Salad"
On Saturday, Tamera Mowry-Housley tweeted that she planned on trying THE salad from Caioti Pizza Cafe in Studio City, Calif., to induce her labor. Well, we can confirm that she did indeed consume the watercress dish. (The owner attributes its baby-moving reputation to the dressing, a secret ingredient and "love.")
Obviously, it didn't exactly yield the results that the forever mom-to-be was looking for. She's going on a week and one day past her delivery date. Again, who's counting?! But Tamera says that it did, in fact, work.
"The maternity salad gave me a lot of contractions—it was painful! So, basically, it worked," she told myStyle. "But my body wasn't ready! I hadn't dilated yet."
Tamera has learned that pregnant women can do whatever they want to induce their labor, but that if their bodies aren't ready, they're just going to have contractions, which will eventually just stop.
And she's tried everything. She's tried consuming spicy food, castor oil, certain herbs and, of course, "the salad." She's tried bouncing on an exercise ball.
"You have to make sure your body has dilated before you start to do things to induce your labor," Tamera added. "Otherwise, you're just hurting yourself!"
