Certified Placenta Specialist
For many women, the thought of this marvelous organ that supported their baby being discarded as “medical waste” after the birth is distasteful. Some have a desire to give it a respectful burial, to use it to make keepsakes of the pregnancy and birth or to give it back to the Earth by using it to plant a placenta tree. All of these are wonderful options that are discussed in this course.
The Madriella Doula Network does not offer a course in Placenta Encapsulation, also known as Maternal placentophagy, the postpartum ingestion of the placenta by the mother. This course is NOT a Certification in Placenta Encapsulation.
