I’m glad you’re wondering about this! I consider it one of the most important aspects of the job.
All placenta preparation methods involve personal protection equipment (PPE), hospital grade chemical sanitising of workspaces, tools and equipment.
My Bloodborne Pathogens Prevention Training has been updated yearly to uphold my APPA certification. You can see the list of relevant courses/certificates here.
I have provided this service consistently since April 2012. Since this time I have encapsulated more than 1000 placentas for women around Perth.
I have a strong referral network from midwives, obstetricians and doulas and a consistent repeat client base; women returning for the service with subsequent babies.
How can I be assured I will receive capsules from my own placenta?
You are 100% guaranteed to receive your own placenta capsules. I have various measures in place to ensure this.
Firstly I limit the number of bookings I take per month, so I typically only have one placenta in my possession at a time. I pride myself on not being a ‘placenta factory’.
If by chance I have more than one, they are always ID labelled within the Placenta Kit, even before they leave the hospital. Cross checking then occurs at each processing step.
Placentas are always stored separately and I only ever work with one at a time. I also have numerous full sets of equipment to ensure each placenta has its own designated equipment from start to finish.
All of my practices are covered by insurance.
