If you have a passion for helping people during their postpartum and want to build a great business, Birth Beautifully’s Placenta Encapsulation Specialist is a great step in the field of birthwork!

Ingesting the placenta in various forms and topical usage has been common in many cultures for centuries. Today many women are rediscovering the hormonal benefits that often come with placenta encapsulation. Most clients who decide to have their placenta encapsulated choose to have them processed into pill form, but other options include smoothies, powders, tinctures, skin care products, and more.     


A Birth Beautifully Placenta Encapsulation Specialist is first a professional. We hold to the highest standards when it comes to client interaction and health and safety in processing placentas. Because you are preparing something your client will ingest, there is no room for casual, unprofessional work areas or procedures. Birth Beautifully’s comprehensive training explains everything in detail and offers additional trainer support to ensure you are confident and ready to make this part of your own business. 

Jumpstart Your Business

Birth Beautifully’s Placenta Encapsulation Specialist training and certification program is specific, comprehensive, and will leave you ready to start providing services for your own clients immediately. You’ll also be a certified Birth Beautifully Placenta Encapsulation Specialist for life – there are no requirements to recertify later.* 

Placenta encapsulation is a great add-on service offered by many other birthworkers, including birth and postpartum doulas, childbirth educators, massage therapists, and others. Your placenta encapsulation business can also thrive as a standalone service.
