Let the woman that doubts miscarriage at any certain time let her begin to drink this water, a month before her usual time of miscarrying and so drink it 2 months together, about 5 spoonfulls every morning, fasting an hour after it any time of the day.

Then rest, but on any fright or Longing or any other occasion wilst with child so as may give a fear of miscarrying this water may be taken at any time of the day again, & thus distilled will hold its vertues very effectually 2 years.
