Shawna did not eat her placenta after birth in 2009, but then had her encapsulated placenta pills in 2013 and again in 2016. She recovered so quickly and was filled with so much energy. This is why she is so passionate about the benefits of placenta encapsulation. Comparing the recovery from her previous birth, is like night and day. She has also seen how it has helped the over 500 new parents she has encapsulated for since 2012. She took a 6 month training in 2012 and has spent about 24 hours with continuing her education. She continues to learn with each placenta and loves teaching others.
If you are interested in learning more, please don’t hesitate to contact her.
She also loves spending time outdoors with her friends and family, baby wearing, playing with her kids, learning new things and listening to music.

"Shawna is incredible! I received Shawna's information through a recommendation from my Doula. I was looking to get placenta pills, after hearing reviews of all the great things they do for new mothers. Shawna made the process incredibly easy, and worry free. She worked with my partner to make sure that receiving the pills, and dropping off the placenta were no-brainers, perfect for new parents. I was so happy upon receiving the package. I plan on using the collection of pills now and saving some for the future ( like when my baby is teething). I was touched by the beautiful print from my placenta (this means the world to me and I plan on framing it is so beautiful!), and a part of umbilical cord shaped into a heart (what a sweet token!) I have been using the pills for a little over a week, and never felt the hormonal drop that I so often hear about. I have great energy regardless of minimal sleep, and feel confident with the continuation of my fourth trimester! I would recommend Shawna in a heartbeat!"
