Certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist
After experiencing a very difficult postpartum period following the birth of her first child, Erin felt overwhelmed, had no energy, and experienced postpartum depression. She began researching for a way to ease the postpartum transition for her next baby. One of her friends pointed her in the direction of placenta consumption.
She decided to encapsulate her placenta for her second pregnancy and was blown away by how different of an experience it was. She realized birth recovery didn’t have to be so difficult and made it her mission to help moms facing the same issues.
Erin specializes in both raw and basic heated methods for encapsulation. She loves supporting women through their postpartum period by providing them a means to feel happier, healthier, and more balanced with placenta encapsulation.
