The Art and Science of Placenta Encapsulation
Birth Ways International offers a hands-on intensive workshop that prepares you to provide placenta encapsulation to clients. We present a balance of evidence-based science and traditional wisdom.
Open to anyone interested in placentas, whether you plan to encapsulate or just wish to enjoy the workshop and sharing! Topics include a ‘placenta tour’, respectful and safe handling, discussion of making placenta prints, raw and Traditional Chinese methods, drying the cord, safety and sanitation, OSHA guidelines, special circumstances, steps involved in preparing, dehydrating and making capsules, as well as tips on placenta smoothies. Navigating hospital policies will also be discussed.
Glove up! Cut, dry and encapsulate real placentas! You will see the entire process and practice it all under the guidance of instructors that have processed hundreds of placentas.
The encapsulation training I took from Karen and Angie was really great. They provided a nice balance of teacher-led information and hands-on experience. I left feeling confident and ready to offer this as a part of my services.
