Quote:
If we, as a body of placenta service providers, do not have standards and oversight then the various health departments and government entities will begin to investigate. I was the subject of an intense investigation by the health department and the FDA, and they continue to monitor this practice. Trust me, they are not our fans! I had to provide documentation to various agencies describing our safety methods, policies and procedures, and prove that they are in line with their regulations. These are the same policies that are provided through the Training Course. Stay safe, stay legal.
