Families & medical professionals prefer Detroit Doula Company's safe placenta encapsulation option.
When we're providing a luxury service, we want you to feel good about what you're getting. We took everyone's standards into consideration when we renewed our placenta encapsulation service and we're pleased to report that our clients love our new and improved standard!
At its heart, placenta encapsulation is preparing a consumable good from a meat product; it is a process that needs to pay careful attention to proper food handling requirements. In the state of Michigan, food preparation must be done in a licensed kitchen unless it’s prepared in the client’s home. Taking these food handling requirements into consideration Detroit Doula Co has decided that it is not only safest, but legal, to ONLY provide encapsulation services in our client’s homes.
Currently, there are no licensing requirements or regulations for providing placenta encapsulation services. Placenta encapsulators merge what is known about food prep and handling with medical blood borne pathogen protocol. Unfortunately, not everyone agrees on what is necessary and there are huge variences from encapsulator to encapsulator.
We also acknowledge that there are no laws regarding the transportation of your placenta. Therefore we follow the World Health Organization’s guidelines for safe transport, with the added requirement that our encapsulation service providers will never transport your placenta.
We admit Detroit Doula Co owner, Gina Hodgson, has been one of ‘those’ encapsulators in the past, going with the ‘status quo’ transporting and processing placentas in a home workspace. This was normal for Metro Detroit and across the US, but we’re done being average! We’ve taken this step to set the bar higher and break down the walls between you and your placenta.
We’ve raised the standards for YOU!
Detroit Doula Co placenta encapsulation services will ONLY be done in the comfort of your own home, and your placenta will be transported by you, never leaving your sight. You'll have the added benefit of a trained postpartum professional in your home to ask questions and receive help from.
You are in charge of your placenta. You’ll know the quality of cleanliness and care your Detroit Doula Co postpartum placenta specialist provides because the service happens in the heart of your home. Every step will be completely transparent and you’re free to keep your eyes on us, not that you have to, with this kind of transparency what’s not to trust?
