Terms and Conditions
By clicking the Submit button or purchasing/choosing to have your placenta processed, I agree to the terms of service.
Limitations and Disclaimer:
Your encapsulater is not a licensed medical professional and is not able to diagnose, treat or prescribe for any health condition. Services and fees are for the preparation and encapsulation of your placenta, not for the sale of the capsules. No specific benefits or effects are promised. Benefits will vary from person to person.
The encapsulater will provide storing and consumption directions with the preparation of your placenta.
It is your responsibility to notify Austin Womb Service as soon after the birth as possible to make arrangements for pick up or drop off.
Failure to do so may result in delayed placenta preparation and encapsulation and may cause decreased potency of nutrients, hormones, and other beneficial attributes of the placenta, and even spoilage of the placenta which would render it unusable for encapsulation.
It is your responsibility to discuss release of your placenta from the hospital where you give birth and to ensure proper storage of your placenta in a refrigerator or cooler with the placenta placed on ice until it can be delivered for preparation and encapsulation.
Austin Womb Service does not determine whether or not the placenta is suitable for consumption; it is your responsibility to discuss this with your care provider .
Your Encapsulater and Austin Womb Service are not responsible for any adverse reactions to your placenta capsules. Please inform your Encapsulater of any allergies prior to the encapsulation process.
When the encapsulation process takes place in your home, the placenta will be left to dehydrate for several hours. You may choose to leave it unattended, but The Encapsulater and Austin Womb Service are not responsible for any fire or damages that may occur.
Your Encapsulater will use proper food handling techniques and perform the encapsulation in a clean environment using tools and equipment that have been cleaned and sterilized before and after each use.
If this agreement is terminated before the release of the placenta **BEFORE 34wks gestation, during contractual time** to the Encapsulater, 50% of fees paid will be returned, 50% will be kept for administrative fees. If for whatever reason **AFTER 34wks gestation, during contractual time** no refund will be issued but 75% of the total fee paid can be transferred to use for other services. 25% is kept for administrative fees. This is because we only take a certain amount of placenta clients a month to ensure that everyone is able to get their products in a timely manner and are not prepared at the same time as another clients!
If the contract is terminated after releasing the placenta to the encapsulater but before any preparation have begun, it will be returned for disposal.
There will be no refund and payment will be due in full once encapsulater has the placenta and/or preparation has begun.
By signing this agreement you acknowledge that Austin Womb Service follows all safety measures set my the City of Austin Health and Safety guidelines for food preparation and that you agree to hold not hold Austin Womb Service liable for any loss, liability, damage or cost that may arise from the ingestion or preparation of your placenta.
In the case of inability to sign or forgetting to sign the agreement, by purchasing the placenta services you agree to uphold to the same standards as if you did sign it.
