‘I have just completed the two day aromatherapy in midwifery practice course with Denise. She came to Preston and delivered the training to twenty midwives and student midwives. Every person I have spoken to has had nothing but immense praise for Denise and the training she delivered. If you’re considering booking an Expectancy course, I highly recommend that you do!’
