This work is personal for us. We deeply believe in the benefits of placenta encapsulation, and we also deeply care about how and what people are taught about it. When we began APPA in 2009, resources regarding placenta preparation were incredibly limited. There was a growing interest about the practice and the benefits, but hardly any information for people seeking to learn more. So, we created APPA to fill this void. Since day one, we’ve sought to be a dependable and professional space for not only expectant families, but placenta and birth professionals alike.
What makes APPA unique? Our standards, training, and overall framework are not based on a single person’s opinions, knowledge, or ideals. APPA’s foundation was created by placenta encapsulation industry’s pioneers and evolves on the growing collective wisdom of our faculty of seasoned professionals.
APPA is not simply a means to certification. APPA is, first and foremost, a resource for accurate, up-to-date, and internationally transferable information regarding placenta preparation. Certification allows us to maintain an ongoing relationship with graduates, so that we can continue to share new information in this rapidly developing field and provide a list of specialists for families.
Why families choose APPA Certified Placenta Arts Specialists
Upon completion of APPA’s program, each student will have developed protocols specific to their practice. Our faculty functions as a peer review mechanism, ensuring each member’s individual practices meet our key best practices, while also embracing the unique differences of each member. This quality and safety control aspect is unique to APPA as a training organization.
We respect autonomy in practice, but always place a focus on evidence-based safety. We train our certified APPACs to be experts in the field. When families choose APPA Certified specialists, they know their placenta is being prepared by someone who is conscientious and highly-trained.
APPA is the most comprehensive placenta arts training in the world. We hold the highest standards in safety and best practice for professionals seeking certification in placenta encapsulation and placenta arts.
