“My training with Esther to become a placenta encapsulator, was excellent. I felt that Esther’s passion for placenta encapsulation made the training that much more meaningful. She guided me in the proper and safe handling and processing the placenta. When I completed the training I felt confident and excited about beginning to encapsulate placentas on my own.”
– Robin Maza – Acupuncturist, Massage Therapist, Doula

“Esther is so knowledgeable and very thorough in her presentation. She demystified this mysterious topic, took out the “ick” factor and made the placental encapsulation process do-able. Esther also covered the benefits that a mom could expect from taking placenta capsules, different ways to prepare placentas, as well as the process for preparing tinctures. We even got to play with placenta art prints! Esther is engaging and supportive and I learned so much. Take this class, you won’t be sorry!”

“I am currently a doula and was I introduced to the idea of placenta encapsulation along my journey. The idea intrigued me and I was highly recommended to Esther, who had been doing placenta encapsulation for quite a while. Esther not only taught me the detailed process of encapsulating placentas, but she showed me that there was more to being a placenta specialist then just encapsulating. Esther taught me that along with encapsulating placentas comes a grace and beauty and she infused a love and passion for it as well. It was a wonderful and beautiful experience being trained and guided by Esther.”
