Have you ever wondered what it's like to have me in your home preparing your pills? Occasionally I have a client ask me what it's like to have their placenta prepared in their own home. Here is what I tell them.
After scheduling a convenient time with your designated contact person, I arrive to your home within 48 hours of delivery. My goal is always to arrive within 24 hours, but occasionally it's closer to the 48 hour mark. I arrive in scrubs, with my own equipment and sanitize the work area. If there are dirty dishes in the sink or on the counter, I wash, dry and put them away before starting my sanitation process. If there are steak knives or a coffee pot that I don't need to move, I cover these to protect them before I begin.
I begin my work, and quietly steam the placenta to prepare it for dehydration. You may smell ginger while it is steaming, as I use ground ginger in the water, and perhaps you may smell the bleach solution I use for sanitizing. The aroma isn't overpowering and quickly dissipates when I'm finished.
After my work is done, I clean the area again and put everything back the way I found it. I am usually finished with the entire process before mom & baby arrive home from the hospital.
I leave written instructions on how to take the pills as well as other useful information for your review.
