From Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus, Joseph H. Peterson edition:
How to have a nearly painless and safe Childbirth, when the natural Pains are at hand.
Take a handful of white mugwort or artemisia, a similar quantity of melissa, four ounces lavender flowers, all these herbs must be dried, four ounces galligan, four ounces cinnamon, two ounces fennel seed. All these things cut fine and pound them, afterward two pints of wine poured over it and boiled down over a quick fire; then strain through a cloth and frequently give the patient to drink. Sweeten the beverage either with honey or sugar.
N. B.–When the birth is a still-born child, add to the above drink a handful of senna and another of seventree.
