My friend Jessica, who has 4 little ones now, used your products for her first 3 pregnancies, faithfully, and had 3 very easy/fast births. Then with the 4th baby, last summer, she didn’t take any of your tinctures. When I asked why, she didn’t really even know, I think she may have just felt like she’d done this easily/successfully so many times that she probably didn’t need all the herbs anymore. Well, she ended up having her baby at home, as usual, and it was the hardest, longest, most painful birth ever. Her second birth, by contrast, was completely pain-free (no drugs, of course, at home with her midwife). So I have wondered if those tinctures made all the difference. I used them for my births and all of them were so fast and easy, almost pain-free (the only pain I ever felt was in transition and then very shortly thereafter while pushing them out...but it was never extreme). Anyhow, I think your products are worth more than gold! A.A.
