Angie Stefanisin

PLacenta encapsulation Specialist

Angie, a wife & mother, has a passion to care for others. Angie has worked in health care for the past eight years performing a variety of diagnostic tests and screenings such as EKGs, osteoporosis screenings, peripheral arterial disease screenings, and phlebotomy for a traveling health screening company. After having two wonderful baby boys of her own, she decided to step down from her full-time position as a traveling Medical Technician to stay home with her children. Experiencing pregnancy, birth, babies, postpartum recovery and placenta encapsulation herself, she knew she wanted to make a positive difference in her local birth community. She decided to utilize this passion and her medical skills to build a business of helping local mothers. She was professionally mentored in the art of placenta encapsulation by a professional midwife and has obtained her food handlers license in addition to her existing blood borne pathogen training. In order to provide the best possible experience to her clients, she perused formal training with the Association of Placenta Preparation Art. Providing a safe service is her top priority. Angie deeply values all her clients and strives to deliver a quality service in efforts to make a difference in each and every one of her client's postpartum recoveries.
