“Virginia Maddock… has been the greatest support during pregnancy and birth for me. She was lovely and caring and respecting any of my wishes during this adventurous times. I am here as a single parent with no family around and she filled all the gaps that were there.
She held my hand during childbirth and I felt like holding my sister’s hand.
I can recommend her as a loving and caring person and advise anyone to choose her as a doula, she is a star!”

First time natural birth at RPA

Our daughter aged 7mths was suffering from constipation and in so much pain she would scream when she passed a bowel motion. This was very distressing and left us feeling helpless, she was still breastfed and eating plenty of fruit and vegetables but still having so much trouble going. Within weeks of treatment from Virginia things started to change and we now have a normal healthy child whose only indication of having passed a bowel motion is a telling odour!  I would highly recommend Virginia to treat anyone’s child and trust in her knowledge and abilities as a herbalist. The treatment was simple and inexpensive but best of all natural. Virginia has also treated my 8yr old for a few minor ailments thus assisting us to avoid the medical route of treatment when it is unnecessary and so much better for a child to recover naturally from these common yet overly medicated ailments. Thank you so much  for all your wisdom and compassion Virginia.


A kid at school ran over Gus’ bare big toe today and he says it’s really sore. I’ll give the magic [Herbal Internal Healing] cream a go! ….
Gus’ toe cleared up after two applications! Thank you.

It’s awesome. I’ve had tennis elbow… I rub my [Herbal Internal Healing] cream in morning and night, along with magnesium oil, and it’s feeling so much better. No remedial treatments needed. Just the magic cream!!

Thanks so much for your awesome [Herbal Internal Healing Cream] ointment. I banged my arm the day after receiving it and only late thought, maybe I should put some on. Aside from smelling divine and being lovely to smell as I went to sleep, the duration and severity of the bruising is markedly affected. I know you gave me extra but I think I’ll need more soon…wondering if it would be wrong to use it as body ointment…LOL!

The [Herbal Internal Healing] cream worked really well, thanks! Apart from smelling delicious, I don’t have any pain or issue with strength, etc in that bone. I used it for about 6 weeks til the pain went away, pretty much, and I wasn’t reminded to use it! I (still) haven’t seen a GP or had it xrayed, but I’ve broken bones before, and the feeling is pretty much the same.

My husband has had a soft tissue injury that no one seems to have been able to help for years. He has seen physiotherapists, chiropractors and has had remedial massage therapy and nothing worked. He was losing the use of his wrist due to the pain and was wearing a support brace daily to function with simple tasks. We contacted Virginia and she suggested the Natural Beginnings ‘Herbal Internal Healing Cream’. Within a few applications he had full range of motion back in his wrist without pain, was able to go without his support band, and after a few weeks he had full function again. Thank you so much. He now only uses the cream occasionally and we wouldn’t have the house empty of it

I got the Herbal External Healing Cream from Virginia to treat my cat who had severe eczema and fur loss. It was excellent. His skin cleared and the fur began to regrow within a week. I also use it for my kids whenever they have nappy rash or other eczema type issues. Highly recommended.

Thanks Virginia. Your [Herbal External Healing] Cream is fantastic. I found when I used your cream for 3 days applying twice a day after shower, my eczema cleared up like magic! Better than any chemist cream I have ever used!

Thanks again for that awesome [Herbal External Healing] Balm you made me. I was worried sex would be painful, but it wasn’t and I’m sure its because I massaged the balm into the [episiotomy] scar tissue.
