Placenta Encapsulation

Jody Swank

In 2015 I saw a dramatic rise in the number of clients requesting information on placenta encapsulation. I referred these clients to placenta specialists in the area for a year before deciding to train and certify to provide these services to future clients. I chose to train and certify with IPPA: International Placenta & Postpartum Association who ensures superior placenta preparation. IPPA strives to provide the most comprehensive and complete training, certification and continuing education offered. I have added this service to my business because of my deep passion for postpartum care. I believe in the need for continuation of mothering the mother after the birth process and placenta encapsulation can be part of this.

I have encapsulated over 100 placentas since 2012. My journey into placenta encapsulation began when a few friends and doula clients asked for referrals to have the process done but finding there wasn’t anyone locally to serve them. I offered to help them out and from there things took off. Once word got out I had even more requests and so I spent hours researching, talking with other encapsulators, and learning how to safely and effectively process placentas for mothers’ consumption and use. All non-disposable tools and equipment are thoroughly sanitized, and bloodborne pathogen precautions taken in accordance with OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standards.
