About IPEN - Independent Placenta Encapsulation Network
IPEN is an International placenta remedy training provider for birth professionals wishing to further their education in post-natal placenta services for new mothers. Our goal is to ensure new mothers around the World have access to affordable, safe and effective placenta remedy services by caring professionals who nurture and respect their choice to benefit from their placenta after birth.
IPEN Founder Lynnea Shrief with her son Roman. Lynnea benefited from her son's placenta in 2009 in both smoothies and capsules after his gentle homebirth.
In late 2009 Company Director and lead training Instructor Lynnea Shrief first offered placenta remedy training to midwives and doulas in her home in Surrey. She has personally trained over 250 women and men since. IPEN's new and improved 3 part program, launched in summer 2015, combines online theory learning and personal hands-on practical training with one of our 5 IPEN Instructors located in 6 different countries on 3 different continents around the world.
IPEN certified placenta specialists are recognised by midwives, doulas, obstetricians, hospitals and birth support workers across the globe for their extensive level of birth, placenta, post-natal health and food safety knowledge and experience. Because IPEN doesn't train just anyone, our prerequisites for joining our training program set us apart from other training providers. Mothers served by IPEN Certified specialists can be sure they are supported by experienced and compassionate women who are firmly integrated within their local birth and health care community.
Combining efforts with 4 UK foods safety experts, 2 leading UK food safety microbiologists and Jena University Placenta Lab in Germany, IPEN has spent the last 2 years perfecting our Food Safety Management System (HACCP - Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) for the safe preparation of human placenta for mothers after birth. IPEN certified placenta specialists can access and implement IPEN's HACCP into their working practice when joining the Placenta Remedies Network upon completion of their training. You will use this document to seek approval for your food business by your local Environmental Health Office. Currently, Richmond Council, Brighton Council, Winchester Council and West Hampshire Borough Council have all approved IPEN Certified specialists working as placenta specialists in these areas.
