Congratulations to Carmen Calvo on becoming a Certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist®. Carmen lives in Baltimore, MD with her husband and two sons and is serving the Baltimore, Annapolis, and Eastern Shore communities in Maryland.
After experiencing pregnancy and birth, Carmen became extremely passionate about birth and out-of-hospital birth options. However, it wasn’t until her second birth that she experienced the benefits of placenta encapsulation and realized that she wanted to give other women the gift of a happy and balanced postpartum experience. Carmen recently started her own placenta encapsulation business, The Nurturing Root and is thrilled to be providing placenta encapsulation services to women in her community.
“After my placenta encapsulation, I became a believer in the power of a baby’s placenta. What a wonderful gift! I am really looking forward to helping women get the postpartum period that they deserve without the blues, anxiety, and depression.” -Carmen Calvo
Becoming certified takes time and commitment. In order to be certified through PBi, a candidate must read and write response papers to research related to placentophagy. A candidate must also pass a written exam, prepare three placentas using the PBi method, and complete a food safety course to adhere to local and state health regulations.
