Cliodhna Griffin HBCE, CMT, APPAC
Houston Placenta Services
My name is Cliodhna (Pronounced Clee-na) Griffin and I am the owner of Houston Placenta Services, formerly known as Born Free Birthing. I developed Houston Placenta Services for a very specific reason, to set a high standard for those of us in the Placenta Preparation Industry throughout Houston.
My kitchen was carefully designed and planned over 18 months and built over the span of 6 months. Every detail has been thought out, from the special FRP non porous walling around the sinks and prep areas, to the NSF grade stainless steel preparation tables, shelving and sinks. I practice medical grade sanitary procedures, using the same sanitation products as many major hospitals, wearing protective clothing and using single use utensils.
In short, I love what I do, I adore processing placentas and helping women enter into their postpartum journey on a better note and I take it incredibly seriously. Your placenta should be respected and processed under the highest of standards, and with Houston Placenta Services, I guarantee it will be!
A little about me and why I do what I do because sometimes it's nice to know a little about the person you are entrusting your precious placenta to!
I come from a small village in Ireland and after meeting my incredibly witty and handsome husband on vacation in Arizona 14 years ago, I moved to Houston to start a very exciting and new chapter in my life. We have welcomed 3 wonderfully smart and thoughtful children who keep us entertained and blissfully happy. Outside of being a wife and mother, I am a HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator, Faculty Member and Mater Trainer of The HypnoBirthing Institute, a Doula and Professional Placenta Encapsulation Specialist.
Birth work is my calling! I love helping families navigate their pregnancies and postpartum periods in a joyful, educated and empowered manner. I truly believe the world would be a better place if expectant families were given more help and shown more kindness during such a pivotal and transformative time in their lives. Through my Professional Placenta Services I am honored to help you have that joyful, empowered postpartum that you so very much deserve!
