There is a small but vocal group of placenta encapsulators who insist that working in the mother's home is the "only safe way" to prepare a placenta. We have asked for facts to support this stance; the two big ideas that were provided were the biome and a mother's security that she is getting her own placenta back. We would like to address those concerns and explain how and why we use our process.
Our language has a profound impact on our thoughts and beliefs. Words are powerful. They can create or destroy; increase confidence or insecurity. Some of the common language we use when it comes to birth and babies is disempowering to mothers.
