“Thank you for my placenta pills. All received and being taken! They came at a good time as my hormones took a nosedive on day 4 after birth but I feel much better now" Rachel, Jan 2018

“Thanks Caroline. I will recommend you to anyone I know having a baby" Carla, Dec 2017

"Brilliant, efficient service. So quick and so kind and helpful. I’m feeling great" Kate, Oct 2017

"Your service is fabulous. You are very easy to get hold of, reply quickly, happily answer any questions and are really approachable. Nothing is too much trouble!"
Caroline, Dec 2017

"I struggled to feed my first baby resulting in a hospital stay and her being dehydrated. The same happened again with my second baby but we avoided the hospital. I believe my placenta capsules helped balance my hormones during stressful times and avoided a second re-admission." Louise, 2017
