​This is a commonly referenced acronym in the childbirth community, but it has value in virtually any situation in which there are 

options to be evaluated in an effort to make an informed decision, including those regarding essential oils, supplements, medicines and healthcare services.  The next time you have the opportunity to make an educated choice, consider the following questions:


 



What are the potential benefits of the proposed option?


   


What are the potential risks?


  


What alternatives are available?


 


What is God and/or my “gut” telling me?


  


What might happen if I wait or do nothing?
