Jodi Selander has been a woman that I have admired for the past 7 years. Jodi first came on my radar when I began researching placenta encapsulation in 2011. I was pregnant with my second son and trying my hardest to keep up with my active 7 month old boy one night when my sister (who also happened to be a practicing accupuncturist) mentioned the benfits of placenta for women during the postpartum period. I was horrified at the thought at first, but after learning that this natural medicine that is made by the mother's own body, was perfectly made just for her and could be neatly packaged into a tiny little pill and easily swallowed, I decided to give it a go.
After my frist expierence with the benefits of the placenta pills I found myself enrolled in Jody's placenta courses. Through PBi I learned all there is to know about placenta preparation & safety, the history of placentaphagy and of course the anatomy & physiology of the placenta.
I began my own boutique placenta encapuslation business in 2011 and all these years later I still love it.
A few weeks ago Jodi reached out to me and offered me the amazing gift of being her very first guest on her first episode of her new podcast called "Ask the Placenta Lady". Being a Registered Nurse, the topic of GBS (Group Beta Strep) was right up my alley and I gladly accepted. I'm happy to announce that podcast is now LIVE and ready for sharing.
As we work to educate the public and healthcare community about the benefits and safety of PE I am happy that we have such passionate, educated people leading the way. Head on over to the PBi page to learn more about being trained in placenta encapsulation and as always, please feel free to share.
