We are fully trained in both the Traditional Method (TM) and Raw methods of placenta encapsulation.  We understand the science behind placentophagy and how to properly prepare your placenta for consumption.  

We have valid Food Handlers' Cards valid in the State of Texas.  We have been trained in proper food safety procedures and avoiding cross-contamination.

We are certified in bloodborne pathogen and infection control through training that meets OSHA standards.  We meet or exceed all standards for infection control, workspace cleanliness, and sanitation.

We partner with a medical courier service to ensure that your placenta is transported safely and with care.  Working with them allows us to offer 24/7 pickup anywhere in the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex...and beyond.

We're ready to create your personal placenta preparation.  Are you?
