    Carol is the greatest midwife anyone could ever hope to have. She brought my son into this world fourteen years ago and the wisdom that she shared with us in that year has lasted a life time. Carol knows more about herbal remedies than any Naturopath I have seen. Thank you Carol for everything that you bring to the world, and thank you for the gentle birth and care that you provided my son.
