PBi warmly welcomes Tara Carpenter as one of our latest Placenta Encapsulation Specialists. Tara has had an innate affinity to the postpartum period,family, and newborns for pretty much most of her life. Her connection to the natural birthing world began in childhood by assisting in her sibling’s births and continued on by giving birth naturally to her own two children. Let Tara explain in her own words her connection to the service of placenta encapsulation-
“Due to my long-time interest in the healing power of foods, I was immediately intrigued by the idea of placenta encapsulation. As a qualified Personal Therapeutic Chef, I both understand and appreciate the immense value that nutrient and mineral rich foods can have on the overall bodily system. Specializing in creating digestive wellness, I am always advocating bone marrow stocks, animal organs and other foods that promote healing in the body. So, it makes perfect sense to me for a new mother to ingest an organ that is as vital as the placenta itself in order to replenish herself after the arduous work of pregnancy and birth.”
Tara has a degree in Early Childhood Education, and is trained as a Macrobiotic Counselor and Healing Chef through MacroAmerica, a certified doula and postpartum doula with Doulas of North America. She is also pursuing her certifications as a Holistic Nutrition Consultant through Bauman College. Thank you, Tara, for including placenta encapsulation as a part of the services you are offering women and families in Central Vermont and the Upper Valley. We are thrilled to have you as part of the PBi Placenta Encapsulation Specialist® Community!
