Placenta Specialist Training

Taught by Midwife Monika Rosicka, LM, CPM, PS,

founder of Women's Wisdom University and Tree of Life Midwifery Services

Course Curriculum

This training is designed to teach you how to become a Professional Placenta Specialist and offers a certificate of completion upon finishing all the modules and turning in all your course work. No prior experience with placentas, births, or even moms with babies required. Of course, it’s super helpful if you already know you love serving this population at such a transformative time.  

Maybe you want to help a friend, family member, your partner, or yourself to prepare her or your own placenta and want the exact step by step process, tools, and health benefits the placenta offers?

You only get one shot to prepare the placenta correctly.

This training is special as it’s the most comprehensive training of it’s kind and the only one taught by a home birth midwife with a unique perspective on birthing out of the hospital. I’ve gathered knowledge about placentas for the past 13+ years, and have taken many trainings myself, taught apprentice midwives and Placenta Specialists, have studied the art and science behind placentas, and really love sharing this knowledge with other birth professionals, whether they’re already pretty seasoned or just starting out.

What you will receive from this training:

  • Safety standards and Universal Precautions and Protocols
  • Sanitation and sterilization techniques
  • Anatomy and Physiology of placentas, including common variations
  • How to properly inspect a placenta
  • How to grow a healthy placenta: emphasis on nutrition, lifestyle, and special circumstances
  • Home vs Hospital vs Birth Center Release forms
  • Contraindications for processing placenta to be consumed by the mom
  • What happens if a placenta goes to pathology?
  • Special placentas and additional circumstances: (Twins/multiples, cesarean births, surrogacy, adoption, fetal demise/still birth)
  • Helpful birth and placenta terminology to help you excel in this field and sound more professional to families and birth professionals
  • What equipment to use and where to get it, including where to get capsules, types of capsules, and where to get jars/types of jars, what paper to use for prints, etc.
  • Placentaphagy, including encapsulation, other methods (TCM vs raw vs half and half), other recipes to add to your skill set
  • Science and research information about this growing field
  • Exact step-by-step video and written guide with pictures how to prepare the placenta in capsules, make prints, tinctures, and homeopathic remedies, cord keepsake, and other applications of placenta
  • Real feed-back from me on all your course work (wow! I’m so into holistic women’s health, you’re in for a treat…Don’t think of it as regular school, rather a network, community, and new career training)
  • Ready to use forms and hand outs your clients will love that have information, education, and address the most common questions and concerns so you don’t have to recreate the wheel every time (and you can customize for your own practice with logo, name, contact info).

Biz Training:

Everything from getting your first client, sample contracts, marketing, advertising, goal setting, getting referrals, how to meet your ideal clients, receiving feed-back from previous clients, website and social media help.

This portion is worth the price of the class alone!! I have been studying business from industry leaders the past 5 years and know all about the feminine models that work to increase abundance, identify your ideal clients, and how to network to get even more referrals…not to be missed even by seasoned birth pros!!)

Membership in a private FB group focused on helping you go from a beginner to an experienced Placenta Specialist. This group will continue after the course completion. I will be responding to this group a lot during the duration of the course itself.

Course Outline

This training is broken up into six modules that can be accessed from any computer, smart phone, or device in the world! Each module has written, visual, and audio components, and a couple modules also have instructional videos, such as the process of encapsulating the placenta so you can watch it from start to finish before you try your first one.

I strive to help adults learn new skills and like to explain things clearly and in multiple formats and ways. One new module is available every week, and you have as much time as you need to complete the course, from several weeks to several months. You can access the modules as long as you would like in the future.  

You need to complete all the assignments and receive feed-back from 3 families about your services to receive the Certification of Completion stating you took the course, completed the course work, and are now a Placenta Specialist.

The first module will be available the week of November 10 and doors will close promptly by Nov 17 for this round of the course.

Looking forward to having you in the first class. The greatly reduced price is really worthwhile. 

Early Bird Special through Nov 5: $497, will go up $100 after that to $597. 

If you spend $497-597 to take the course, you can make that money back very easily with 2-4 encapsulations, depending what you charge: For a low end $150 service, you would only have to offer the service 3 times to get almost all the money back, that's amazing!! If you charge more than that, say up to $250-300 per service, you can make the class investment back in 2 encapsulations. 

I will even teach business skills, something I spent the last 5 years of my own midwifery practice learning. Feminine Business Models are in, and working for yourself while you care for your family and make $40-100/hour (you set your rates) helping other moms in the early postpartum time. It's an amazing gift you can offer another mother. She will be very grateful and happy while you support your family.

In a bigger area, like a city, you might even be able to make most of your income doing this service alone. I know several Placenta Professionals who do 10-20 each month. More than likely, you'll be doing 4-6 a month, with the potential to grow as the service gains even more momentum.
