Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I attended the birth of a friend and first-time mom. When we arrived at her home, she was not handling her contractions well. She was laying on her stomach screaming with each wave.

I had brought Gentle Baby mixed in coconut oil (5 drops of oil to 4 tbsp coconut oil) with me and began massaging it on her lower back. Her sounds quickly changed from screaming to deep, low moans.

I continued to rub her back with the oil mix throughout her labor. As her labor progressed, we then used the Gentle Baby for perineal support and massage.

She had a natural, vaginal, home delivery with no tearing. For a first-time mom, she had a quick delivery with only a 2-hour pushing stage!

Additional keyword(s) assigned by the editor: homebirth, perineum, midwife, childbirth.
