"Stephanie's Aromabirth program is filled with wonderful evidence-based research on essential oils that are safe to use during pregnancy, in labor and postpartum as well as with infants. She starts with the history of essential oils and goes on to talk about oils that are covered in her e-course that are safe to use. This knowledge is very much needed, because there is a lot of misguided information out there that can harm new mothers and their babies."
Sandra Golaszewski, Midwife
"Stephanie's training is amazing! I have researched this topic for years, so I thought this course was going to be a refresher for me... but boy, was I ever wrong! I've learned so much from this course. I also love how it's go-at-your-own-pace.Stephanie gives great handouts to use as references.The knowledge you get from this course is priceless!"
Kayla McNeill, Infant Massage Instructor
"I loved learning about the history of essential oil use, especially in birth. I found the recipes themselves to be particularly helpful. It's nice knowing which oils blend well together, and for which purposes, because you don't find that in a lot of other courses. I also found the info about the Doctrine of signatures to be very useful. There was a very good framework for each oil and how it's sourced, which informs how it should be used.There were helpful safety rules given in the course,like the difference between midwives and doulas in how you should be handling/prescribing oils, and what training/level of professionalism you need to handle them safely. There was also important information covering when NOT to use the oils, like neat on the newborn's skin, and specific limits for blood pressure management. I really appreciated that specific guidance!"
"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 ittwiceon 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 laboring moms love it, and I'm just really happy I found your course."

"Today I had a pregnant patient come in struggling with getting the birthing process going since tomorrow she will be at 42 weeks! I missed my call with Stephanie to do visceral manipulation and essential oil support to get the labor moving along. So I texted Stephanie and she suggested several things. I tried visceral manipulation with lavender and the Clary Calm roller and got the baby to drop after 20 minutes. Still progressing but soon-to-be mama is on her way tonight."

"Thank you for the fantastic class. I continue to go to the site and learn more by listening over and over again. Now I just need to have some hands-on experience, which you have helped to instill."
Betty Ludlow, Midwife
"I learned a lot of things that I will be sure to apply during my next pregnancy, and I plan to share that information with my friends and family. Stephanie had a lot of information to share that was quite helpful and I know many people will benefit."
