Your safety is my top priority!
That’s why I do all of the following to ensure the safe preparation of your placenta:
(These protocols are followed no matter where I prepare; your home, or my workspace.)
- Temperature check of placenta at time of pick up – to ensure proper storage has occurred.
- Storage until processing in a placenta dedicated refrigerator with thermometer – to ensure safe temperatures are maintained.
- Prep space is cleaned with hospital grade disinfectant before and after preparation of your placenta. (Your placenta never actually touches the workspace. It only comes in contact with disinfected, or single use, food-grade equipment.)
- Single use equipment where appropriate.
- Multiple use equipment is cleaned and then soaked in a hospital grade disinfectant. Followed by a rinse with clean water.
- I use personal protective equipment, not only to protect myself but to ensure there is no cross contamination from myself to your placenta. – This includes a hair cap, face mask, goggles, gloves, apron and sleeve covers.
- I only process one placenta at a time.
