Heartfelt Experiences: Voices of Empowerment and Wellness

February of 2015, my friend Halie shared a fertility application with me. I would not do traditional fertility treatments or anything like that but I decided to give this a try. This application was developed by Stephanie Fritz, a midwife who understands the power of essential oils. God and these two ladies changed our lives. We received a double rainbow (twins) after a seven year storm of infertility and miscarriages. - Valerie M.

Hi Stephanie, first of all I would like to thank you because after five years of not being able to conceive, I followed your fertility protocol and became pregnant. I know that the through your guidance and use of dōTERRA essential oils and supplements made it easier for me to conceive. - Sarah

Thank you for taking the time to go over my needs and helping me set a plan. You made sure I thoroughly understood my choices and most importantly you made sure I felt empowered to make my own decisions for my plan. You have made yourself available and I have complete faith you will be there with me and we will be celebrating life soon! - Kathy

Thanks so much for your help. I tried the lavender and frankincense and within three days the pain was gone. Thank you so much, it was miserable. I just listened to conference call you did for the dōTERRA team that I am newly a part of. I wanted to first of thank you so much! It was refreshing to see someone who embraces the use of these oils during pregnancy as there is so much fear out there about them. - Tracy F.

Stephanie - your call was SO meaty. I have TerraZyme in my kitchen but haven't been taking it regularly. As I listened I busted open the bottle and tossed one back! And will continue to do so each day. I have a friend whose daughter has leaky gut - since TerraZyme is so restorative - I'm going to tell her to have her daughter start taking it to repair her intestinal wall! She's got her on LLV but TerraZyme sounds like an awesome addition. We have a baby is due in February - and the weather in Maryland will be gray and overcast - most likely. I plan to do geranium and lemon on feet, myrrh on cord stump, and lavender for colic. My last child had colic and it was pretty hard on her and on me. (!!!). For myself - immortelle for my bottom - frankincense for ppd. I feel hopeful. I wish you could come deliver my baby. My daughter was born here at home, but the one and only midwife who serves this area is not a hands on midwife - so I wouldn't use her again, and anyway - I'm glad to have dōTERRA oils this time! - Anna

Hi Stephanie! I just finished your book. Absolutely incredible. I can't wait to share it! I have been trying to get pregnant for 2 years now with no success so I'm excited to get strict with your regiman. It was full of so much good information. Thank you so much for blessing lives every day... You truly are AMAZING and I'm seriously considering hiring you to fly out and do my next pregnancy.. haha you may just have to move in for 9 months!:) Thanks for your talents, so happy I met you!! - Krishel

Aloha! Stephanie, I have finished reading your book. loved it.....I have started to write an article that I will publish in a journal for wellness in the Boca area. I will be making a reference to your book, and would also like to use one or two of your recipes, is that okay with you? The webinar last night was very informative. I am a clinical aromatherapist, and am working to expand the scope of practice of my work. I believe that your information will assist me in helping more women and their families, which has been my focus for thirty years or so. Thank you for putting together all of that information, it will serve many. - Lora
