A note from Rebecca --
“I work with Moms who value natural solutions, self-education, and freedom in health choices. Many of my clients feel that aromatherapy is vital for the support of their physical needs as well as meeting their emotional, environmental, and even spiritual needs in labor and birth. I will consult the expecting Mom on how to safely and effectively use oils during pregnancy, birth, and during the postpartum period as well as on into the child through adult years. As a Midwife and Essential Oil educator, I can recommend application strategies that are unique to pregnancy so you can plan to use the best oils for a safe and wonderful birth.”
