Discover How Quickly You Can Transform Into A Confident & Well-Paid Midwife’s Assistant With Our Three Self-Paced Training Modules

Become An Expert

We’ve combed through hundreds of medical journal articles, and dozens of advanced medical textbooks so that you don’t have to. We’ve ruthlessly condensed essential information into an clear and ordered structure so that you can easily internalize core principles into a developed expertise.  Most lessons are about 15 minutes and make sure “you’ve learned it” and not just “you’ve heard it” so that you can utilize professional-grade information in an accessible, conversational manner with parents. When you leave our course you’ll feel like a professional, because you’ll actually be one.

Uncover Your Brilliance

These courses are personal and practical. We believe your family is just as important as the ones you’re serving, and that’s why we’ve included lifestyle design strategies. Our innovative courses will accelerate you into your own dynamic well-being first so you can show up for your clients as the best version of yourself.  We demystify how to build a foundation in your everyday life that can sustain the cost of really going for your dreams. For many students, becoming a midwives assistant is a quantum leap toward a life of higher contribution and success.

Launch Your Business

This action-based module has curated assignments to systematically build the business assets you need to launch. You won’t finish this course full of information only to stare at your browser’s search feature while you figure out what you have to think of, to create, to finish, in order to serve that first client and take that first payment. Try to make that list and you’ll realize it’s a lot. A lot of little things that we’ll guide you through as we come together to brainstorm, flesh-out, simplify, and execute on your business. We don’t sell certifications; we unleash Brilliant Birth Professionals with complete businesses they’re proud of. With Brilliant Birth Academy you’ll be in business for yourself, but never by yourself.


Frequently Asked Questions About Our Program

How Much Does The Certification Cost?

397.00– and that’s it! We’ve spent thousands on our ‘done-for-you swipe files’ that include valuable assets like professionally composed legal waivers, dozens of marketing material design files, and lots more, so your cost of integrating this service into your current placenta encapsulation business should be very low. If you don’t already have a PE business, don’t worry–we’ll walk you through everything you need to know to set up a consulting business as a placenta stem cell consultant.

About two hours per week. Most students have full family schedules so our timeline is designed to be manageable with real-life responsibilities.

More than half your time will be spent producing work to launch your consulting business whether it’s stand-alone or an additional service offering in a placenta encapsulation business.The Launch Your Business Module and the Uncover Your Brilliance Modules are practical, project-based assignments and personal challenges that are interwoven through-out the course. A typical lesson for these might include a 10-minute business strategy video leading to a curated assignment to build a business assets you need to go live. You’ll be acting immediately on new insights instead of thinking “oh, I remember that presentation on how to process credit card payments for my clients…but none of the specifics…how do I do that” …six months later.

These courses are organized around action, around finishing, around sharing your work and learning from that experience. As you complete projects you’ll set them ‘live’ and get coaching from your program directors, feedback from your peers, and then have an assignment to support fellow students with constructive feedback—which is just another way to help you play with the ideas you’ll be learning.

What are our steps to certification? we’re glad you asked! Because we drew this picture for you.

The Uncover Your Brilliance Module gets personal and practical. We believe your family is just as important as the ones you’re serving, and that’s why we’ve included lifestyle design strategies.

Our innovative and life-changing courses are built to accelerate you into your own dynamic well-being first, and to carry that to the families you serve. We think it matters, not just what you know, but who you are; so our neuroscience-based skills training will equip you to exude a calm professionalism while guiding families. Many families experience this process as a high-stakes opportunity–some of them have chosen to have an additional child or are ‘adopting’  a donated placenta from family or friends. Showing up with consistent excellence even amidst challenges requires the mastery of multiple skills. The courses will demystify how to build a foundation in your everyday life that can sustain the cost of really going for your dreams.

To start with, we’re going to clear the clutter in your workspace, your calendar, and your mindset, and we’re going to journey together toward creating a life and a business that you love. You’ll probably get excited, doubt whether the method will work for you, think it’s the dumbest idea ever, think it’s the best idea ever, think you only want to do the part that fits with your personality, realize you actually need to do the other part that you threw away, and come out at the end totally different and exactly true to who you always were. Best part: the course is long enough for you to develop new habits within a community of people who are also upgrading in a serious way so the results last.

Both. You can view the video lectures any time, and even refer back to them with your life-time access pass. The material comes in PDF, audio, and video format you can access across all devices. The “Become An Expert Module” is a do-at-your-own-pace format, but you can leave questions in the comments section to get an answer right away, or save them for the live Q&A sessions. The Uncover Your Brilliance Module involves personal challenges that students have a riot sharing about in our Facebook group hang out—but sharing is optional and feedback is only for fun.

The Launch Your Business Module is a community project sprint series built around prompts released on Monday mornings. There are real-time, online meetings that usually take place on Tuesday nights and Sunday afternoons. The live event schedule will be released at program launch and will be recorded for later viewing. But trust us—you’ll want to be there live for the surprise giveaways of awesome supplies and services you’ll need for your business. And you can only claim them if you’re on the call!

The Course Is Designed For Current Placenta Encpasulators And First-Time Certification Applicants

Placental Stem Cell Consults can be an add-on to existing placental encapsulation services, or pursued as a stand alone business. A Brilliant Birth Academy placental stem cell consultant will be a fully trained in the protocols from the placenta encapsulation field, except for the additional services an encapsulator provides such as encapsulation, tincture, or print-making.

Our courses are limited enrollment and usually only open twice a year so we can provide better support to our students. Our goal isn’t to be the biggest birth training institution, it’s actually to be small. Small in size, but massive in our vision to create a culture shift that adopts a modernized understanding of the placenta and brings it’s gifts to those who need it most. Being a placental stem cell consultant and providing that conscientious, heart-centered service to special needs families during this critical period is so meaningful. We think you’re brilliant. And worth investing in. And that’s why our program is totally different than anything on the market. We invest an incredible amount of resources, time, and support into each consultant we send into the field. There may be less Brilliant Birthworkers, but people can recognize our graduates. They’re gracious and articulate and damn impressive.
