C. Oils and nutrition for birth and creating your birth space.
D. Care for the first minutes and hours after baby is born.
There was so much great content that this seminar kept going and going till we cut if off at two hours and 24 minutes. For your convenience, I have divided the seminar up into four parts so you can peruse the notes of each section and just listen to the section you are interested in. In addition, you will find tips in the transcript that were not discussed in the seminar. Either the seminar got to be too long so we didn’t get to some of the things on the agenda or I decided to add these tips when I made this page, or added tips as I discovered them in the future.
The obligatory FDA disclaimer is at the beginning of the teleseminar so now that the seminar is broken up into four parts, the disclaimer is not found at the beginning of each segment. Please apply the disclaimer to each recorded segment. The contents of this seminar are for informational purposes, please do your research, pray about what oils are right for your pregnancy and birth, and Jihan and I hope you create a beautiful, sacred experience as another spirit joins your family.

Tiffany’s birth story – Contraindication of using Clary Sage in copious amounts which induced Placental Abruption which means that the baby is drowning in the mother’s blood.
-Because Young Living oils are pure doesn’t mean they are always safe to use.
-Essential oils have pharmacological properties.
-Pharmaceutical companies isolate these pharmacological properties and synthesize them into drugs.
-75% of drugs are plant based.
-Just because Young Living oils are pure does not mean you can stop them from having their pharmacological effects on the cell.
-Textbook pregnancy with my seventh child. She was born at 41 weeks.
-Water broke at 7:30 pm.
-Nothing happened for hours. Same thing happened with fifth and sixth child too. So I went to bed.
-Woke up after 2 p.m. Prayed and listened to Holy Ghost to know that something was wrong, not just my fear.
-I took the wrong advice about starting labor with Clary Sage without checking the accuracy of the advice.
-Clary Sage is an estrogenic-like oil. It does not contain estrogen, but acts like estrogen on the cell.
There is a caution mentioned in the EODR. “Some essential oils should be avoided during pregnancy because they contain biochemicals that could disrupt normal pregnancy development in a variety of ways. For this reason they should be avoided by pregnant women until after delivery. These include: basil, calamus, Clary sage, fennel. hyssop, nutmeg, rosemary, sage, tansy, tarragon. Some of these oils, such as fennel, may help to accelerate labor once it has begun. Always consult a health professional before using essential oils other than the ones recommended here during pregnancy.”
-Progesterone is needed to carry a baby to term.
-Clary Sage in copious amounts is an emmenagogue which means it induces bleeding.
-One professional said that Clary Sage breaks the placenta from the uterus. This is what happened to me.
-I wake up my husband and we head to the hospital.
-We are put on a monitor right away and the entire time we are on the monitor we know that something is wrong.
-An hour later, the Surgeon is now involved. After more tests, he tells me to prepare for a C-Section.
-I was taking 10 drops of Clary Sage every ten minutes to attempt to induce labor so I could have a vaginal birth instead of C-Section. I caused a placental abruption and my uterus is now filling with blood and my baby is drowning in my blood. I don’t know this is happening yet.
-Since I was going to have a C-Section, I did not want to suffer the long-term effects of an epidural on the spine so I put 15-20 drops of Helichrysum on my back to prevent the effects before they even started.
-After three epidurals later, I still am not numb.
-I tell the nurses I am soaking the lammie on the table. The nurses try to assure me that it is okay because it is just amniotic fluid even though I reminded them I came into the hospital with no fluid and they gave me two boluses of fluid by I.V.
-When I changed positions from sitting on the edge of the table to laying down on the table, blood gushes all over the floor.
-Doctors, surgeons, and nurses are now in a hurry talking in code.
-I am given a drug to prevent me from remembering the pain of being cut into.
-My husband is video taping my daughter being born dead and being resuscitated.
-I am awakened an hour later, and my daughter is brought to me. She was purple with grey lips.
-The nurse explained her color that she needed to be resuscitated.
-I heard hours later what placental abruption is. It not only drowns the baby in the mother’s blood, but many times it kills the mother too because it is the mother who is hemorrhaging.
-DO YOUR HOMEWORK!
-Clary Sage should only be used when you are already in labor.
-Only a couple of drops of needed.
Read Penny LeClair’s testimony here of how she used one capsule of Clary Sage to induce labor and went from 4cm to 10 cm fast.
(At this point Tiffany switches phones so the recording is edited to amplify the sound.)
-Dr. Young only used one capsule of Clary Sage to help his wife, Mary, progress from 5 cm to 10 cm in 23 minutes because she was already in labor.
-I should have considered Dr. Young’s story in my homework search.
-The good news in this story is that I had a hemostat, helichrysum, already on my back so I bled less, which means that my daughter drowned in less blood, and she was able to be resuscitated.
-I was able to keep her from dying again by using diluted Myrrh on her chest and belly to move out the remaining blood and mucus. It is also good for muscle support, pain, and C-Section pains.
-I’m glad I listened to the Holy Ghost to go to the hospital in time.
-I’m grateful I had those oils on hand.
-I’m grateful God spared our lives.
-In recovery, the needle came out of my epidural. I don’t know how many hours I had been without a pain killer because I wasn’t suffering pain because I was taking Vetiver and Valarian essential oils by capsule. I kept rubbing diluted Myrrh on my legs and was able to get the pharmaceuticals out of my body so that I could walk again 12 hours after a C-Section.
Alexandria today at three years old with Tiffany. Two miracles alive today because of the integrity of Dr. Gary Young who only produces pure essential oils.
Q and A Session:
Q: Is Thieves contraindicated in pregnancy?
A: Two to three drops topically every few hours is safe.
Two to three drops by capsule every few hours is safe.
Thieves contains clove which is a blood thinner so you don’t want to take copious amounts by capsule.
