Safety & Benefits

Safety first! I take care of each and every placenta and it's processing, with the utmost care, respect, and safety it deserves. 

Show me the benefits! Women who encapsulate and consume their placentas often report:

  • Dedicated work space. All placentas are clearly labeled with clients name and date received, then stored in a dedicated refrigerator with its temperature monitored at regular intervals

  • Placentas are kept refrigerated until processing can begin

  • I work on only one placenta at a time so that there is no chance of a mix-up

  • Dehydration takes place in only a high quality dehydrator with a temperature gauge, never an oven

  • Certifications in OSHA standards & precautions, BBP protocol and ServSafe guidelines are strictly adhered to for your protection and mine

  • All surfaces are washed and sanitized in bleach solution prior to use

  • All personal protective equipment (disposable gloves, aprons, etc.) are used EVERY time
