Spirited Doula Placenta Encapsulation
Taryn Goodwin, of Spirited Doula, became interested in placenta encapsulation after having postpartum depression with the birth of her son. She learned about the benefits of ingesting the placenta and was really attracted to the possibility of offering such a unique and needed service.

Taryn was the first Placenta Encapsulation Provider to serve Oklahoma and she has prepared over 300 placentas for encapsulation and regularly hosts presentations on the benefits of the placenta for postpartum wellness.

Spinning Babies
Spinning Babies offers online instruction for rotation and positioning during the last phase of pregnancy. Though the maternity provider is focused on cervical dilation, labor progress is often dependent on baby’s rotation. To fit the pelvis, the baby often rotates, or spins around, to face mother’s back—and does so whenever possible. Spinning Babies shows how to make rotation easier for the baby.
