Placenta Benefits is pleased to introduce Katie Bredbeck, our newest Placenta Encapsulation Specialist® in Houston, TX.
Katie is the owner of Matrescence Postpartum Services. Matrescence is the process of becoming a mother, just as adolescence means the process of becoming an adult. Medical Anthropologist Dana Raphael, PhD, coined the term in response to her observation that becoming a mother is a process rather than an event. Katie’s mission is to support women in that daunting and challenging process of becoming a mother.
Katie first became interested in placentophagy after the birth of her third child. While her first two children were homebirths, her third child was an unplanned homebirth transfer and c-section. She experienced some problems with her milk supply due to, in part, the stress of recovery from her c-section. She first heard about placenta encapsulation through a breastfeeding support group. She became intrigued wondering if it could have helped her overcome the lactation problems that she faced. Katie then took a web seminar from a PBi-Trained Encapsulation Specialist who encouraged her to contact PBi.
“I am pleased to be the first Placenta Encapsulation Specialist® in the Houston area. PBi PES follow FDA and OSHA guidelines; we are also trained in safe food-handling as mandated by the State of Texas. We bring our own equipment, do the work for you, and clean up afterward.” ~ Katie Bredbeck
