We believe placental remedies are part of the abundant provision of nature to support bonding between a newborn mother and child; we also believe that the restoration of that first connection within families can grow to bring joy and peace to all other areas of disconnection in our world. That’s why our Academy is designed to get our students through certification and into service; we share our student’s common goal of supporting their family and the families in their communities. It’s literally why we exist.

Why A Re-Certification Program?
Brilliant Birth Academy launched our PE program because we dreamed of radically and holistically investing into Placenta Encapsulators. Over the last year we began to take students who came to us to re-certify. At first it was a few—but then it was a lot. The more we listened, the more we realized that there are policies in our field that make it difficult to graduate and expensive to stay certified. Here are just a few current practices in our field:
- Penalized deadlines, after which you cannot be certified.
- Removal of students from ‘active status’ with charges to ‘re-activate.’
- Pointless and lengthy paperwork, assignments, and submission requirements. Many students have wondered if these were just intentional barricades used as income generators when course completion was delayed then penalized.
- Arbitrary pass/fail standards for written final exams and fees ($250.00<) for test re-taking. Hidden yearly re-certification fee agreements that come with lots of bullet points and no perceivable value.
- No course previews and no refunds.
Our programs are designed to be as comprehensive as they are concise; first because they are designed with busy mothers in mind, secondly because our end goal is successful encapsulation services being provided to local families while you are able to sustainably provide for your own. This goal manifests in our course offerings in dynamic ways that will only expand. We holistically invest into your business training, and have ‘all inclusive’ business assets that are designed to bring increase and success to all your business offerings as a birth professional.

“While I cleaned out my fridges this afternoon, I listened to Finisher’s Formula and the ‘Finding Your Why’ courses. Wow. This mindset. This right here. It’s so important and SO needed. I’m a homeschooling mom of 8. My youngest child is 15 months old. I finished the Placenta Encapsulator course in 2 weeks. I attended 2 births as a midwife’s assistant during that time. Multiple kids started their sports seasons during that time and I’m the chauffeur, manager, proctor, teacher, and a student with Brilliant Birth Academy. I feel like I GET to do all these things with and for the people I love. I want to share these truths with Every. Single. Person. who stops me at the grocery store to tell me I’m “a supermom.” Can I share this course with everyone I know?? Thank you for pouring yourself into this academy; I’ve been looking for it for the last 15 years! I’m so, so grateful to have found Brilliant Birth Academy. You are changing lives!!” -D. Kenagy *fastest course finisher ever with a lead of 4 weeks!

Frequently Asked Questions
Despite other institution’s claims that preparing the placenta in clients’ homes is safer, no variation of blood borne pathogen transmission has been observed between institutions that require a client based preparation site vs other locations with over 30 years of time for that differentiation to emerge.Placenta Encapsulation is one of many occupations that carries a risk of blood exposure. Tattooists, piercers, health-care workers, first-responders etc have the same risks. None of these other professions require services to only be rendered in the client’s home. The reason no other service-based occupations with a high risk of blood exposure require you to provide your own tools, or require services to be performed in the clients home, is because with proper sanitation protocols and safety precautions, it is completely unnecessary.Institutional infringements on encapsulator’s preparation preference significantly diminishes their profit margins due to increased costs. Additionally, many clients do not want the placenta prepared in their space and will not choose providers who are bound by their training institution to only offer services in the client’s home.Brilliant Birth Academy is in alignment with all other service-based occupations with a high risk of blood exposure; none of which require you to provide your own tools for services rendered, and none of which require services to be performed in the clients home. These actions are unnecessary, costly to practitioners, and a frequent infringement on parental preference. The claims that these protocols make placenta encapsulation safer are unfounded.We have confidence in our placenta workers and the mothers they serve to come to their own informed decision on a preparation location and do not believe this decision requires institutional interference. We advise encapsulators to comply with all local laws.
Around 5 hours per week for between 6-8 weeks. There are 40 hours of courses with no required assignments for re-cert students. Most of our students have full schedules with families and jobs. Our intensive timeline will stretch you, but will still be manageable with real-life responsibilities.
The fastest anyone’s done it is two weeks which we could hardly believe that was possible but it’s true. The average length is closer to 10 weeks. We’re here to help you succeed as quickly as possible! And remember with this program, you have access to the course after monthly payments end so you can always go back and refresh your training or simply allow us to curate the most important details from the course that we conveniently send in bite-sized chunks in our continuing ed program.

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.You’ll master the skills you need to serve well during birth, but they’ll also prove invaluable as you tackle dream after dream. For many students becoming a birth pro is a first, powerful step toward a life of higher contribution and success.
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 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. Some of our courses involve 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. Just so you know, we had a clear the clutter course based on Marie Kondo’s work BEFORE she blew up. =)
