“I've already started using some of the blends you recommend in your course in my practice and have seen amazing results. I think I've been most impressed with the blend to help with placental separation... I've used it twice on placentas that did not want to come just before I was going to call my back-up doctor and both times within 30 seconds out came the placenta. I love it, my labouring moms love it, just really happy I found your course.”
