“They were there when I started around 6 years ago, are brilliant at their work and lovely people, to boot. They are both mentors and peers and absolutely know their sh*t” – Leanne Kemmler Palmerston
APPA has taken my placenta practice to a new level of professionalism and safety. I can’t recommend the organization enough for both placenta professionals looking to enhance their skills and knowledge as well as those looking to launch a new career. – APPA Graduate

 At APPA, we feel that placenta arts certification should equal a degree of training not acquired in a matter of days or even weeks. 

Our modules are designed to completely prepare you to start your Placenta Arts practice. From creating your business documents to identifying the most commonly seen anomalies, and more importantly, keeping you and your clients safe. We expect each module will take anywhere from 2-12 weeks to complete or 6-9 months for the entire course. Many placenta arts programs offer weekend certification programs or short self-study programs. That’s not our style. At APPA, we feel that placenta arts certification should equal a degree of training not acquired in a matter of days or even weeks.  We developed the APPA program as a result of many requests from previously trained providers for a more comprehensive professional training. We aren’t just training you to prepare placentas safely for your clients, we are training you to be a placenta expert with detailed knowledge of safety, research, business building, preparation arts, anatomy, and postpartum expectations.

Our comprehensive program includes:

  • Three hours of professional one on one mentorship

Our Professional Mentors are seasoned experts eager to support you on your journey. Our mentors may be available through email, video chat, and even over the phone. We want you to succeed.
