Looking for somebody to encapsulate your placenta? The Issaquah Doula agency currently has the ONLY TWO Postpartum Placenta Specialists north of Olympia.
But there are plenty of placenta encapsulators throughout King County right?
So what makes Issaquah Doula stand out?
YOUR SAFETY. YOUR HEALTH. YOUR PEACE OF MIND. oh and this little diddy by the World Health Organization:
According to the World Health Organization's Guidelines for the Safe Transport of Infectious Substances and Diagnostic Specimens the following practices should be observed:
- Specimen containers should be watertight and leak-proof
- If the specimen container is a tube, it must be tightly capped and placed in a rack to maintain it in an upright position
- Specimen containers and racks should be placed in robust, leak-proof plastic or metal transport boxes with secure, tight fitting covers
- The transport box should be secured in the transport vehicle
- Each transport box should be labeled appropriately consistent with it's contents
- Specimen data forms and identification data should accompany each transport box
- A spill kit containing absorbent material, a chlorine disinfectant, a leak-proof waste disposal container and heavy duty reusable gloves should be kept in the transport vehicle
Issaquah Doula loans you a kit and takes your safety a STEP FURTHER and only processes your placenta in YOUR home.
Since you are responsible for the transportation of your placenta from your chosen place of birth to the safest environment after, (your own home) you are 100% guaranteed that the placenta being processed (and ingested by you) is in fact the one that nourished your baby.
No other encapsulator of placentas can guarantee that.
If it is being processed in a "work space" or their own home kitchen, YOU WILL HAVE DOUBT. Doubt that the placenta belongs to you, doubt of their handling process, doubt of their sanitation and equipment. Just as a child's top can make you dizzy, so can the list of encapsulators in our area.
The training and standards that Issaquah Doula instills within their agency supersedes this dizzying collection. We are deliberate and intentional with raising the bar within our community.
Because your safety, health, and peace of mind are OUR priority.
