Placenta Encapsulation Specialist®
Darcie Black - Ithaca, NY
As a practicing doula and herbalist it has been an honor to work with women and their families as the welcome their newest additions! Birth and the months postpartum are full of transitions for the family, baby and mother. While I'm passionate about prenatal education and birth support, I have found the most fulfillment working with families throughout the days, weeks and months after baby is born.
Every birth, family, mother and child are different. There are many ways to support a family unit as they find their balance with this new way of life, and I have found that placenta encapsulation has been an incredible aspect of this support system. From the first few clients who shared their experiences with encapsulating their placentas, I knew I wanted to offer this service. The most remarkable reflections came from the mothers who had not encapsulated their placentas with their first birth(s) and chose to do so with their later birth(s). The differences they noticed in their milk supply, sense of well-being and overall postpartum experience were notable and they couldn't help but attribute it to their capsules. Many mothers expressed a sense of calming support any time they took their capsules. It did not take too many reflections like these before I chose to enroll in PBi's encapsulation training and begin offering this service to my clients. As an herbalist who focuses her lens on pregnancy, motherhood and children's health, it was a perfect compliment.
I offer encapsulation services to families living in the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes regions of New York. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, to set up an interview or to book an encapsulation for your upcoming birth!
