I’m writing this because I’m extremely disappointed to discover that there have been a small number of students who decided that copying and pasting from another source would be a good way to get through the PBi Training Course.
I want everyone to know that cheating goes against everything that PBi stands for. Our PBi Specialists are the highest trained, most highly educated BECAUSE they worked hard to get through extremely dense scientific research materials. The entire purpose of the PBi Training Course is to help our Specialists develop an intelligent, articulate, fact-based presentation that they can use to educate women in their own communities about the benefits of placenta. Then, they can prepare the placenta for the mother with the best process, according to the strictest protocols and safety standards developed by ANY organization in the field.
Mothers, I want you to know that if you go to the PBi site and search for a Specialist in our Provider Directory, that you are getting only a top-quality person of the highest caliber, who has the knowledge and integrity to take care of you and the placenta in the best way possible. PBi is not some fly-by-night, “Oh I watched a video on YouTube and now I can do your placenta” type of encapsulator. PBi Specialists are REQUIRED to adhere to strict standards and protocols. That is why the course has been dubbed “so hard”, and PBi is “too strict” and “regulated” for some people. But those are not the people you want preparing the placenta for you, and those are not the people you will find in our Directory.
There is never a shortcut to doing the right thing the best way. PBi is dedicated to mothers – we always have been and always will be. If that means denying some people access to our coursework, refusing to promote some people in our Directory, and having so-called haters, then so be it.
I didn’t create PBi to make friends. I created PBi to help mothers have a better postpartum experience. I will do everything in my power to uphold our mission statement that I wrote many years ago:
Placenta Benefits.info (PBi) will make the use of placenta for postpartum recovery a natural part of the birthing process. We will provide professional quality placenta encapsulation services, adhere to the highest safety standards, and through community outreach and education help every birthing woman have the best mothering experience possible.
I absolutely expect every single one of PBi’s Placenta Encapsulation Specialist®s to support this mission as well.
