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.
