Founder of Your Pure Placenta
I am Fiona Cooke, founder of Your Pure Placenta. I am based in Herefordshire and have two grown-up children of my own. I studied Midwifery in 2002 and then went on to become a Maternity Nurse where I have helped and supported many families around the world with their new babies.
I love to encourage and give parents the confidence to care for their baby. I am a great advocate for breastfeeding, but will support a woman in her choices however she chooses to feed her baby. I am passionate about pregnancy, birth, post birth and babies and aim to support women at this special time in their lives.
I became interested in placenta encapsulation when I heard from my colleagues that more and more postnatal women were using this service. I was intrigued and wanted to know more about the benefits of consuming the placenta. Once I looked into it, it was clear to me that it was a naturally beneficial thing to do. After all, women all over the world have been consuming their placentas for centuries and almost all mammals do it. It is an organ that has started from conception and grown and developed to nourish your growing foetus. It has all the necessary nutrients to support life. I wish I had known about placenta encapsulation before my children were born.
I know of many placenta encapsulation services around the country but, as I am based in Herefordshire, I would love to bring this service closer to home and to benefit all the post-natal women in the surrounding areas. I trained with Placenta UK based in Bedfordshire. They are very passionate about placentas and the benefits for the postpartum period. I was also very impressed with the health and safety aspects of producing placenta capsules, as this was one of my main concerns. Placenta encapsulation is undertaken with the highest of health and safety standards.
I can offer this service in Herefordshire, Shropshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and the surrounding borders.
