Nicole Link-Troen has completed her training through PBi and is ready to start helping women with their postpartum recovery in the Richmond community and surrounding Hanover, Henrico, Chesterfeild and Midlothian counties.
Nicole graduated from Christopher Newport University in 2008 with a B.A. in History. Little did she know then that she’d be encapsulating placentas 2 years later! Whatever paths bring us to this work may be long and winding, but they are always divinely lit.
Nicole moved to Richmond in 2008, married her sweetheart that same year and gave birth to her son in November of 2009. He was born naturally in the hospital after an emergency transfer from her planned homebirth. She was fortunate enough to have midwife Kim Mosny CPM, LM who supported her birth plan and made sure that she was able to get her placenta home from the hospital so that Bettie Sheets, PES (PBi) could encapsulate it for her. She has been ‘sold on placenta’ ever since.
“After suffering from pre-partum blues I was nervous about the postpartum ones and I am so glad that I choose to consume my placenta and have it encapsulated. There have been a few days, even at three months postpartum, that I am so thankful to have those pills in the freezer. I feel blessed by my experiences with birth and postpartum and I want to ‘pay it forward’ to the women in my community and I can think of no better way to do that than to enable and support them by making the benefits of their placenta available for an extended time. I am an admitted birth junkie and I am honored to serve postpartum women as they recover from pregnancy and birth. ” ~ Nicole Link-Troen
