Most women who try placenta, like it. (2013)

2011-Great News from a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist in Wisconsin:

"One of my clients just received reimbursement from their flex spending account for placenta encapsulation! It was actually the client's husband that thought due to his wife's depression issues in the past that placenta encapsulation should be covered via his flex account plan. He worked hard to get it covered. He worked with the HR head of his company and shared documentation and research on the benefits, he also had the birth center midwife write a letter of recommendation to his wife that she should encapsulate based on her depression history, they shared this recommendation - two months after the birth - they received the check in the mail for the compensation of the fee paid for the encapsulation! I only gave them a handwritten receipt, like I always do. He did tell me they checked out my personal website and the PBi website extensively - (It) pays for people to use a certified PBi specialist! "

(I also found out that a woman with low milk supply was able to get

reimbursement for placenta encapsulation as a breastfeeding support method.) Yeah!!
