I am excited to introduce you to Oklahoma's newest Placenta Encapsulation Providers!
Chelsey and Jessi will be serving Spirited Birth Services during my maternity leave and are available to assist as needed thereafter! They are OSHA Certified and mentored by me personally in the same method of preparation for capsule making, tincture making and print making that I have used to serve over 300 families.
Chelsey Murnan, CD(DONA), Placenta Encapsulation Provider
Chelsey's passion for birth work, like many of us, began when she became a mother. After obtaining her nursing license she found out the hospital setting wasn't for her. She continued on to get her doula training in Oct 2009 and completed her certification in July 2011. First and foremost she is a midwife assistant at Community Midwifery Services, since Jan 2011. She is also an LPN, DONA Certified Doula, Certified Breastfeeding Educator and Placenta Encapsulation Provider with Spirited Birth Services. Her long term goal is to become a respected midwife. Chelsey's passion for placenta encapsulation began when she was pregnant with her third child. After being discouraged to encapsulate because it was gross/weird she then developed postpartum depression. Chelsey felt she was unable to fully enjoy her babymoon and had harmful thoughts toward her newborn. At around 4 months postpartum she was placed on significant antidepressants. During that time all she wanted was her placenta back. She reports actually craving it! Unfortunately, once it's gone there's no retrieving it. This is why she strongly recommends freezing your placenta at the very least. Chelsey feels very blessed to be working with such a lovely group of ladies as we better birth from pregnancy and beyond. She currently lives in Norman, Oklahoma.

She and her husband currently live in Choctaw, Oklahoma.
