I have been working with postpartum women since 2006. I am the founder of Placenta Benefits, an informational resource and training organization dedicated to natural postpartum recovery. My book on postpartum recovery was published in 2014 - The Postpartum Survival Guide - which is now available on Amazon. I also teach my Postpartum Survival Course based on the book several times a year. I have a passion for helping birthing people settle into their new normal after the birth of their baby. I'm here to help!

I had my baby in April 2022 and pre scheduled Jodi to encapsulate my placenta. While I was in touch with her she was always helpful and responsive. After that I decided to do a pampering “after birth” ceremony with her. It was nice and relaxing and had a lot of pampering parts to it. As time went on and since this is my first baby I realized I was overwhelmed and needed night help; I was just flat out exhausted and knew I needed some sort of help because My husband is a surgeon so there was no way I could ask him to share duties with me. I asked Jodi if she knew anyone who offers night service and she said she actually offered that service. Jodi ended up staying with my baby at night for 4 months so I could get much needed rest. She was always on time, she was so careful with My Baby and became close to my husband and I. Jodi is an incredible trustworthy soul. I’m pregnant again and can’t wait to hire her for round two. You won’t regret inviting Jodi into your home. She’s a special, giving, loving caretaker for your bundle of joy. Ps- you can see my review I left her on Yelp as well. And yes, the placenta caps work and are amazing. I didn’t get any depression and felt like I had some energy back when I took them. I had no issues with them at all. I loved them.
