Australia is very fortunate to have the wealth of experience that comes from APPAC Kirrah Stewart!
Kirrah Stewart holds a Bachelor Degree in Clinical Science but after witnessing her first homebirth in 2007, she found her true passion lay in birth work. She is now an experienced doula, pregnancy masseuse, childbirth educator and placenta encapsulation specialist.
Being a self confessed ‘placenta nerd’ she was thrilled at the opportunity to further her education with the Association of Placenta Preparation Arts (APPA) as it’s the most comprehensive and in-depth placenta training available globally.
Kirrah graduated from APPA in June 2016 and was proud to be the first APPA certified placenta specialist in New South Wales, Australia.
Kirrah says ‘I take my placenta encapsulation services seriously. Furthering my formal training with APPA gave me the confidence to know that I am conforming to the highest standards in this profession and encapsulating placentas in the safest possible way’.
