Leanne - Rebel born
IPEN Certified Placenta Remedies Specialist / 34 views
Hiya, so heres a little about me. I’m Leanne, wife, mama of four. I’m a pregnancy, birth and postnatal Doula (Badass birth trained) and IPEN placenta remedies specialist residing in Birmingham, West Midlands, UK. I’m obsessed with everything pregnancy, birth and postpartum related.
I’ve always especially been intrigued by placentas and how those strange looking things kept my babies safe,nourished and healthy for all those months, but it wasn’t until I was pregnant with my fourth child back in 2016, I started reading about people consuming their placentas and the benefits in doing so. After doing my own research, I decided I was going to encapsulate my own after this delivery. Thinking this will be my last baby, I wanted to process my placenta myself, I’m not the squeamish type, so i thought to myself why the hell not! So after spending a small fortune on getting set up, delivery day came by (after a 45 hour labour may i add!) and a few hours after delivery, I took my placenta from the fridge and proceeded to set up and process my placenta into capsules with a cord keepsake and a placenta print thrown in for good measure. I started my capsules right away, I felt great, I didn’t suffer with the “baby blues,” my milk had came in a lot sooner than it had done with my other three children and i just felt a lot more energised all round. I learned a lot from that experience, the biggest lesson being, finding what a lengthy and tiring task it was to have done myself, so soon after giving birth. I was very greatful to two online friends who helped me through the process. It was a very empowering experience, but all in all I promised myself if I was to ever have another child, (never say never eh?) I’d certainly choose to have someone process my placenta for me. I then came to the realisation that this was something I could possibly offer to new birthing people and help them receive the benefits of consuming their own placentas, so I looked into this further and came across IPEN, and here I am in 2020 finally starting up my placenta remedies business and I couldn’t be more excited.
I provide each client with a placenta chiller pack, which I will send out 3 weeks prior to your due date. Your chiller pack will include: Cooler bag, storage box, freezer boards (which you will need to freeze beforehand) and instructions on how to safely store your placenta up until collection and how the collection/delivery process works, my contact details and any other relevant paperwork. If you have any questions regarding this after you receive your pack, please get in touch, as these steps are crucial in keeping your placenta safe for consumption. Of course do not forget to take your pack with you to the hospital or have ready at your home birth.

Placentas are processed in a dedicated work space. I work from medical stainless steel workbenches, I also wear full personal protective equipment (PPE) to eliminate any risk of cross contamination. I use food safe/medical grade disinfectants and I use single use items where possible and items which are not single use are put into a three part sterilisation process. Only one placenta at one time is processed to eliminate cross contamination risks. I pride myself on a very high standard of health and hygiene, any questions you have with regards to this I would be more than happy to discuss further. Your safety is paramount.
I offer: Placenta capsules (steam/dried) (dehydrated/raw), smoothies, essence, tincture, homopathic remedy,oil, balm, salve, umbilical cord keepsake (choice of framed/unframed), placenta print (framed/unframed). please email for prices and to book your placenta remedy today.
I’m incredibly excited to be able to offer these services to you and I hope you find consuming your placenta to be as beneficial to you as it was to myself and many others. You can find me at –
