I am a parent looking to learn more about Placenta Encapsulation. Where should I go?
Can anyone take this course, anywhere?
Yes! APPA is international and meets the needs of placenta professionals in all nations. APPA is unique in that it’s advanced enough to meet the needs of even the most experienced professionals, while also attending to the more basic needs of someone who has never even touched a placenta.
What’s the training like?
We offer seven self-paced training modules through a sophisticated online platform. Our platform is mobile friendly, using steps to help you move through the program on your own schedule. You will have a year to complete your coursework. While each module is different, you can expect videos, demonstrations, multimedia, and discussion, as well as reading.
Each module has several tasks for you to complete. Each task will not only help you understand the concepts, but will support you with crucial building blocks to your new placenta business.

What about placenta stem cell therapies?
Stem Cell Therapy is a highly regulated medical procedure that is outside the scope of practice for placenta encapsulation specialists. APPA does not support placenta consumption for anyone other than the birthing person or for the purpose of stem cell therapies.
Does APPA have restrictions on preparation location or method?
APPA has no restrictions on prep location in terms of preparing in the client’s home vs. the specialist’s workspace. At APPA, professional autonomy is important. We feel the best decisions are made when you, the professional, have complete information to make the decision that feels right for you. We provide comprehensive information, which allows you to tailor your practice to you and your client’s needs and desires.
