Graduate Spotlight: Karyn Brown

Placenta encapsulator?  Placenta arts specialist?  How does that kind of career choice happen?  For me, it happened like this.  After seven years in the Army, two AA degrees, and a lot more college, I decided to settle down and raise a family.  I am a stay-at-home, breast-feeding, cloth diapering, and home schooling mother of five, with one on the way. I love what I do!
Starting with my second pregnancy I had really wanted a home birth, but never seemed to be within the traveling radius of a Certified Nurse Midwife.  Finally, with my fourth child, while in Alaska, I got my wish.  It was a wonderful experience.  This was also my first introduction to all the wonderful benefits of the placenta!  I became a believer. Two years later I was again able to take advantage of the lovely benefits of a home birth and placenta encapsulation with my fifth child.
From my personal experience with placenta pills, I loved the energy boosts!  I definitely noticed a much faster healing duration compared with my previous pregnancies when I did not take pills.  I seemed to be happier when taking the pills and had an abundant milk supply.  Really, I can’t say enough good things about it.
After numerous suggestions that I open a business doing placenta encapsulation I decided to look into certification.  If I was going to do it, I was going to do it right.  I wanted to offer the best of the best.  When looking into certifying agencies, APPA stood head and shoulders above the rest.
I really believe in the beneficial and medicinal properties of the placenta.  I enjoy spreading awareness about placenta encapsulation so that moms can make informed decisions.  It is always exciting to see moms experiencing the benefits firsthand!  I simply love helping moms and families.
