I've long been a believer in aromatherapy and homeopathy and while I've heard a good deal about homeopathic remedies I rarely hear of those who use aromatherapy. So when a friend of mine told me that she used lavender in the water at her homebirth I was curious and found out that lavender stimulates contractions while relaxing the mother. I thought that maybe some of you ladies here would be interested in reading some of the things that I've found recently so I thought I would post this site for a starting point!

"I trust birth—not birth attendants—for if you only trust birth that is attended then you really don't trust birth at all. You trust the attendant. And then you start over. Who? Doctor, surgeon, CNM, CPM, SIM? And it goes on and on...." - Carla Hartley
"First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win." -Gandhi
"What good fortune for those in power that people do not think." - Adolph Hitler
