COMPREHENSIVE TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE

I have been fully trained in food safety and hold a WA State food handlers card. I have completed a blood borne pathogens training specifically designed for placenta encapsulation specialists which is OSHA certified. I am certified in handling bloodborne pathogens according to the OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.1030. This means superior client safety and rigorous standards are applied to every aspect of the process. You can rest easy, knowing that your placenta will be handled properly, safely and respectfully.

PROPER REFRIGERATION AND TRANSPORTATION PROTOCOLS

Proper refrigeration during storage and transportation is crucial as bacteria can colonize if not properly handled. I have the experience needed to safely transport your placenta for preparation, with over 380 placenta’s transported and encapsulated.

I ONLY WORK ON ONE PLACENTA AT A TIME

Nothing is more important than your safety, so I only work on one placenta at a time, per location. If two clients give birth on the same day I complete the first placenta, fully disinfect and then begin the second placenta. Every client receives my full attention to detail and safety. I have chosen to limit the amount of client’s I accept each month, to ensure my availability. I also have several back up encapsulation specialists with similar skill & experience readily available. My service does not end when I deliver your capsules. I am available any time to consult and answer any questions you have regarding your placenta products.

PREPARATION AREA IS PROPERLY DISINFECTED

The entire preparation surface is thoroughly disinfected before and after with a bleach solution, the dilution of which exceeds OSHA protocols to prevent cross contamination. I also do a clean water rinse to remove bleach residue.

EQUIPMENT IS PROPERLY DISINFECTED

Because the equipment comes in contact with many clients, it is imperative that it be properly disinfected every single use in order to prevent cross contamination. My protocol requires everything be washed in hot soapy water, rinsed, then fully immersed in a 10% bleach solution for 20 minutes, followed by a final clean water rinse to remove bleach residue. This is the standard required by OSHA & the EPA for disinfection and is designed to kill STIs and blood borne pathogens. I also replace equipment yearly and use disposable products when possible. You also have the option for me to prepare your placenta using your own equipment.
