Tara Carpenter, PBi-Certified Placenta Encapsulationist & Mentor
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve felt an incredible pull to the postpartum period of life. When I was only 5 yrs. old, I walked my neighborhood looking for pink and blue balloons signaling the arrival of a new baby.
I would knock on their door and give the parents a “mother’s helper” card; eventually becoming an extended part of each family.
All my life, my mom ran a home day-care and later a Montessori school. Kids and parents filled our home day and night. We were also the hub for the home-birthing community. When I was 6 and 9 yrs. old, I watched my sister and brother be born at home…My job was to cut the umbilical cord.
As a Certified Nutritionist, I understand the immense value that nutrient-rich food, like bone stock and marrow, can have. When I learned about placenta encapsulation, I was immediately intrigued. It makes perfect sense to me for new mothers to ingest a vital organ, such as the placenta, after the hard work of pregnancy and birth.

Warm greetings! I am thrilled to share the wonderful process of placenta encapsulation with all of you. I live in Burlington with my family and enjoy all that the Vermont life offers.
My love for women’s health started while working as a Clinic Assistant at Planned Parenthood in Colorado. When I relocated to Boston, I transferred to Planned Parenthood there and spent 5 years as Senior Medical/Lab Assistant. I moved to Burlington 12 yrs. ago, to work with VT Cares and advocate for women’s sexual health.
A new chapter began when I learned of Tara’s placenta work. I was immediately struck by a desire to be part of this process. I enjoy helping women in the greater Burlington area to harness the power of placenta for themselves, and their families.
