The placenta encapsulation specialist (PES) must adhere to all OSHA & EPA guidelines regarding bloodborne pathogen transmission, infection prevention, standards for sanitation, and safe food handling. All materials used must be thoroughly sterilized between each use, when not disposable, and everything must meet food grade standards.

CDC Statement on Late-Onset Infant Group B Streptococcus Infection Associated with Maternal Consumption of Capsules Containing Dehydrated Placenta: In their statement, the CDC mentions that heating at 130° for at least 121 minutes is necessary to decrease infection-causing bacteria counts. We also know from preliminary research data published earlier this year in Europe that steaming followed by dehydration causes a drastic reduction of microbial counts during encapsulation and that in properly prepared placenta capsules no unsafe organisms were detected. While no regulations exist to standardize placenta encapsulation practices, and not all placenta encapsulators have adequate training or protocols to ensure the highest possible safety standards are followed, the precautions and sanitation protocols must be followed in all phases of the encapsulation process. All Postpartum Placenta Specialists must utilize disposable/single-use equipment and supplies whenever possible and sanitize all reusable equipment observing OSHA bloodborne pathogens and infection control guidelines and training.
