transportation and storage

  • Proper storage and handling after the birth and  during transportation is essential to ensuring safety. If your placenta is not refrigerated or put on ice within 4 hours of the birth, or if it is not frozen within 4 days, it will not be able to be used for encapsulation. A placenta that has been frozen for longer than 6 months is also not eligible for encapsulation. Additionally, your placenta is always kept on ice and in a cooler during transportation to my dedicated work space. 

safety during encapsulation

  • Placentas are processed in a dedicated work space that ensures safety, cleanliness, and reduces the chance of any contaminates or allergens

  • Temperature controlled storage of your placenta during refrigeration and processing

  • Only  one placenta is processed at a time to ensure no cross contamination 

  • Only high quality dehydrators that have a temperature control gauge are used 

  • Placenta's are dehydrated at the necessary 160 degrees for 18-24 hours 

  • Universal Precautions are strictly adhered to as well as all OSHA and State Food Handlers guidelines

  • Full PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)  is used at every step of the process. This includes gloves, safety goggles, and gown

  • All surfaces are washed and sanitized using a 1:10 bleach solution before and after every placenta

  • All equipment is soaked in a 1:10 bleach solution for a minimum of 10 minutes

  • All surfaces and equipment are rinsed with clean water after sanitization and laid out to air dry per OSHA standards
