In recent months, Health Canada has issued a statement regarding encapsulation. As a birth doula and prenatal educator part of my role is helping clients make decisions using informed consent. Which basically means sharing evidence for and possibly against, anything and everything, to make the best decision possible for each individual. When Health Canada released their statement on placenta encapsulation, I immediately contacted my training organization. APPA is recognized in the placenta field as a leader in industry standards and safety. They have done extensive research, compiled studies, reports, etc on placenta use. I want my clients to feel safe in their decisions, and transparency is key. You can find Health Canada's statement here. For further information regarding APPA's Standards of Practice, safety and placenta research, see here.
