Our placenta specialists trained with IPPA, both in-person & online, to learn how to properly handle & encapsulate placentas. We also keep current certificates of bloodborne pathogen training & CA Food Handler's Cards. We take great pride in our placenta encapsulation workspace; our cleaning protocols exceed OSHA standards and regulations. All dehydrated placentas, no matter the type of preparation method, reach an internal heat of 160 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure the highest standards of food safety.
Ethical Practice: Your Birth Team aims to be as forthcoming & transparent as possible in all areas of practice. To ensure safety of your placenta at all times, only one placenta is allowed in the workspace at a time. We limit the number of pre-booked clients per month to eliminate overlap between clients. This also means a speedy return to you!

Placenta Encapsulation Testimonials
Amanda is amazing! I called her regarding encapsulating my placenta and she was so nice and answered all my questions! Her website is very user friendly and she makes everything so convenient for you! She came and picked up my placenta and then dropped the capsules off at our house, which is a blessing because you don't want to have to go anywhere right after having a baby!
Prior to our baby being born she did a private child birth class for us which helped so much! She helped guide my husband on how to be there for me and what to expect which made him feel much better! We had no idea what to expect during childbirth and she was able to make us feel confident that we could do it! She's very open minded and kind! I highly recommend her services!
I am a first time mama...and so it has all been new, and with that I couldn't be more thankful for Amanda. I had reached out to Amanda for placenta encapsulation and belly binding. She got back to me so quickly and made the process of booking the services super easy. But this review is about so so much more. When Amanda brought me my placenta pills she sat down with me, asked me about how my journey into motherhood has gone, asked how breastfeeding was going, and simply took time with me.
Then a few days later when she came back to teach me how to do my belly binding...To have someone like Amanda sit down with us, take time with us, check-in with us via text message over the next few days was invaluable. If you are looking for someone who is knowledgeable, accessible, trusting, and reliable then Amanda is it.

Amanda was so sweet and informative. She was wonderful to work with. I had chosen to encapsulate my placenta and I'm very happy with the end results. She came and picked up my placenta from the hospital and returned the finished product to our home. Thanks again!

We hired Your Birth Team to do our placenta encapsulation and tincture after our daughter was born. Amanda was amazing! She took great care of us, had very quick turnaround time, was available for questions, and followed up to see how things were going. She made me feel very comfortable. I highly highly recommend her!
~Bree, Dana Point
I used the placenta encapsulation services and am so happy I did! Amanda came to my home after my baby was born and and returned the next day with my encapsulation completed and was so kind! She also followed up with me to make sure I was happy with the results and to make sure the baby and I were doing well.
Also, about 2 months postpartum I called Amanda for help with lactation services and she gave me a fabulous referral and was so helpful. It was so easy to work with Amanda and Your Birth Team and I absolutely would use them again.

I had already hired a doula team but was referred to Amanda for placenta encapsulation. She is truly just a wonderful person and I could not have felt more comfortable or excited about encapsulation with her. The entire process has been enjoyable and worthwhile. She responded to all my questions immediately and knows her stuff! She picked up and soon hand delivered taking the time to present everything in a neat little gift package.
I felt really comfortable with her and that she really genuinely cared about my well being. She followed up and even offered additional resources and support if I ever needed as well! Given how much I enjoyed our limited contact with encapsulation, I can only imagine what a phenomenal doula she is too!
