“Amanda made the process of placenta encapsulation very easy. She was prompt in getting the capsules delivered very shortly after birth. I have been waxing lyrical about Amanda’s service, and recommend her to all my pregnant friends.”
“Amanda was such a great help, listening to my questions no matter how silly I thought they were.”
“Amanda’s instructions were clear for both me and the midwives at the hospital. It was dealt with, with ease and professionalism. Getting my placenta to Amanda was seamless and my capsules were delivered quickly to my door.”
“I highly and strongly recommend Amanda’s placenta service to all my pregnant friends. It was honestly the best thing I have ever done. I will definitely get Amanda to encapsulate for me again!”
“I was really pleased with the service we had from Amanda at Placenta Practice. The information she provided was very informative (the midwives even commented about it as well!) and easy to follow.”
