The next step for getting set up to work with Placenta Bliss:
1st Fill out this contact form... Check our availability for your estimated due date. Find out if you are in our travel range for delivery to your home. Ask any questions you have about the process, the type of encapsulation, or any detail you're unclear on. Also receive our Placenta Bliss client paperwork package to get started with our service.
2nd Get your paperwork in order... Fill out pages 3-5 of the Placenta Bliss client paperwork package: the contract, client copy of the contract, client information page. Pull together a copy of your blood. You can work request a copy from your provider or print the results from your patient portal. The blood work is the basic OB panel w/HIV, we will just review your HIV and STD's status. We are basically looking at infectious diseases status and do not need to keep it on file. We do this for the protection of our families and the ones we work with.
3rd Set up an in-person prenatal meeting... We want to get to know our clients, understand their placenta service and postpartum goals. We also take this time to go over placenta handling, so you know what to do from the time of birth to pick up. We get all paperwork in order, including reviewing your blood work before reading and signing the Client & Specialist Liability form. Pages 3-5 from your Placenta Bliss client paperwork package and A non-refundable deposit of $50 reduce from the placenta encapsulation fee (remainder due upon delivery).
What's next after the prenatal meeting?
1st Inform us you are in labor... Once we have been informed that active labor has begun we will take this time to get everything in order. This an important step to creating a seamless pick up. We decide which of our specialist will be working with you. We take this time to review pick up and contact information. So whomever you deem responsible to inform us that you're in active labor, will need to text/call and be sure to get a response from us. We will need to know, who is in labor and where they will be birthing to look up the client's information.
2nd Call once the placenta is born... We are on call 24/7! Please Do Not Wait To Call Us! Once the placenta is born, had been reviewed by your provider, cord blood donation has been taken (if planning to donate). Have the placenta placed into your gallon size Ziploc bag with your name & phone number on it, then placed in your cooler with ice and call us. We would prefer to get to you with the 2 hours of immediate postpartum to ensure a safe and quality encapsulation. In order to do that we need to pick up your placenta in a timely manner. We want to ensure it stays viable for encapsulation, so please do not leave your placenta on ice for many hours, and always keep in mind our travel time to and from. We will not be able to encapsulation if it is not properly handled. With all that in mind, Please Do Not Leave A Message via Text, Email, Facebook Messenger, Google Hangouts, etc we must receive a phone call stating Who Birthed and Where.
3rd Set up delivery... Please inform us of departing the hospital, so we can set up delivery of your placenta service. We are typically done with 48 hours and ready to deliver, although due to timing on your part or ours, it may be up to 72 hours before your capsules are delivered.
For example you may not be released from the hospital until day 3 after a cesarean birth. Or we may need to deliver capsules to another client before starting your encapsulation, as we work within a fool-proof system of only actively working on one encapsulation from preparation to delivering the finished capsules.
What happens at delivery?
We deliver your bag with all the goodies you ordered. We email you information on your product so you can always find it and review it from any of your electronics. If you would prefer a print out, please in form us at the prenatal meeting. We go over the information and to help you decide where to start. We talk over all important care factors for you and your product(s). This can be done in person, over the phone, or text/email.
