PLEASE do not ever allow anyone to pick up your placenta, take it away from you and then bring you prepared pills! Please read this important information about why I do not offer pick up or drop off services and why it’s best that you do not seek them.
It is imperative that you know what is happening to your placenta (or any other food that you ingest).
Texas has strict standards for facilities that prepare consumable substances. Regular inspections are performed by the local authorities to ensure proper food handling, sanitation and other safety compliance standards. This is a new type of service. There is no government/health department monitoring or inspecting “Placenta Encapsulation Facilities” to ensure proper food safety and sanitation guidelines are being met (proper temperature controls, properly working appliances, no mixing of personal area and placenta preparation area, proper labeling, no animals allowed in work area, etc.). And there are currently NO facilities in the United States that are approved for the preparation of placenta pills. These pills are being prepared in someone’s home, not a local Health Department or FDA inspected facility as you would require for any other place which prepares consumable substances (especially meat products).
It is perfectly legal to have your own placenta prepared at your own residence.
In other words, an individual cannot legally prepare placenta from their home, unless it is your own placenta being prepared in your own home.
I prepare placenta pills in your home for the following reasons:
First and foremost because it is illegal in the state of Texas for me to transport your placenta without proper certification and for me to prepare consumable foods for sale in my home.
You can be certain that you are getting your own placenta; and ONLY your placenta.
You know exactly what is happening to your placenta. You know that it has been stored at the proper food temperature and, if you choose, you can actively observe the preparation of your placenta.
You can be assured that your placenta pills are prepared in a clean environment. Without regular health inspections and monitoring, the only way to ensure your pills are being prepared in a clean and legal environment is by having them prepared in your home.
As a PBi-Certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist, my handling and disinfection practices meet strict Federal (OSHA and EPA) guidelines. The PBi method of preparation is on file and documented with the FDA! And our standards meet EPA guidelines for a licensed small laboratory, that handles bloodborne pathogens and medical waste. We’re not just testing or trying new things and we haven’t simply read a blog or seen a video about preparing placenta.
It is VERY important that you have a TRAINED Placenta Encapsulation specialist come to your home to prepare your placenta pills!
