Let's face it, there are several options for placenta encapsulation training on the market now and new trainings pop up every single day.
People often ask, "What is the BEST training?". I'm going to be controversial here and say that there is no BEST training for every single person! While I have past students shout from the rooftops about how much they love my training, it really isn't for everyone.
How do you decide if it's right for you? Here are some reasons this training might actually be for you!
If you would like an interactive class.
PTC is not a self-study course. All trainings are done in real time either virtually on Zoom or in person. You can ask questions and get answers immediately. Our trainings, while we always cover the course material in full, sometimes dive more heavily into other compatible topics. Every training is the same, yet each has a slightly different spin based on the students in the class. I am “doulaing” you through your training and adjust as I see fit to work with where you are in your business and your comfort with placentas.
If you are a hands-on learner.
Placenta encapsulation is a sensory experience especially the first time you complete an encapsulation. During the class we each work through the entire process together (virtually or in person). First you watch, ask questions, and get feedback, then you do each step under my watchful eye. This may be your first experience in seeing a placenta, touching a placenta, and smelling a placenta. It’s wonderful to experience that with someone to guide you and support you. If you are nervous about the blood or the placenta, this is the course to take so you have a supportive person by your side.
If you are willing to consider the benefits of encapsulation in the client’s home...
or you just do NOT want a stream of placentas in your home for any reason, this may be the class for you. In class, it’s not up for debate. I AM happy to discuss this aspect of the training with anyone before you sign up, so you know you are in the best class for you.
If you want to learn to honor the rich history of placenta use based in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
There are many different processes for encapsulating a placenta and PTC’s practice is heavily steeped in TCM tradition and anecdotal benefits, with a modern-day twist. You’ll even learn my personal theory on why placenta encapsulation works for most people, and what it might not work for some.
If you want a strong support system after the training.
Now, many trainings offer support afterwards, but PTC has its own special spin. This is a grassroots organization. I am the owner and only trainer. While we have a student Facebook group to ask questions, get ideas for marketing, further training opportunities when changes occur, the real benefit is my own personal response to you. You get my personal cell number and can reach out to me for questions that need a timely response. I’ve walked someone through an encapsulation when they couldn’t remember and did not bring the cheat sheet guide with them. I’ve offered my suggestions and guidance when an unusual circumstance presents itself. I’ve even jumped on a quick Zoom call to walk a new consultant through using a different capsule machine than we used in class and helped source equipment when supply issues or products were discontinued. I’ve been training encapsulators for about 8 ½ years and have been processing placentas for at least 12 years. I am not going anywhere! While the organization name has changed a few times over the years, I am still here for my students!
Lastly, and maybe most importantly...
You get to see my placenta tattoo which was made famous or is that infamous on the internet in a “worst parenting tattoos” website! While, yes, this little funny tidbit is true, the real point is that we have fun in a training! It’s an enjoyable time when the subject matter can be stressful at times. Placenta Training Company’s classes offer and build a connection and bond. That’s what birth work is all about!
Now, if you’ve actually made it to the bottom of this EXTREMELY long post, you might be interested in PTC’s upcoming trainings! You can find them at www.placentatrainingcompany.com/classes. I hope to see you! Please reach out if you have any questions at all! I love to talk placentas!
