Check out this new gift concept: www.wellnesspossibilities.com sells one gift certificate that can be used for all kinds of services to "help you live healthier, happier and easier".

The company was started by a birth coach and a nurse. The nurse wanted to get pregnant but the medical community could not help her. She met the birth coach who shared alternative/complementary resources, and she was able to conceive naturally - twice. I know both babies were born naturally, too, one at home and the other in the water at the hospital.
