Kylie Pattnaik has been supporting women during the childbearing year as a birth doula since 2007. She also has a background as a Holistic Practitioner and as a Registered Health Professional in both the UK and Australia. She became interested in placentophagy when she assisted a client in making a smoothie from a portion of the placenta soon after the birth and encapsulated the rest of it. A direct quote from this experience by Kylie,
“It was a real privilege to make the placenta smoothie for my client. I found it a most interesting and amazing experience. It was so special to be handling the placenta, which just a short time ago was still inside my client’s body and responsible for keeping her baby alive. Making the smoothie was such a sacred process.”
Through this first experience, she decided to to incorporate placenta encapsulation into her services. The benefits and postpartum support from placenta encapsulation were a natural fit and extension for Kylie’s doula work.
We are thrilled to have Kylie as a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist® in Lostwithiel, England. We appreciate the support she gives to the postpartum women who receive her services and her participation in the placenta encapsulation movement.
Thank You and A Warm Welcome to Kylie Pattnaik from PBi!
