About Us

‘Placenta Pills West Midlands’ is a sister company to Birthability Ltd.

 Birthability is a recognised name in antenatal education across Warwickshire and Solihull and is co-owned by Sallyann Beresford and Sarah Cossey

We love all things pregnancy and birth and therefore we pride ourselves in offering a top quality service to every mum that contacts us!  Our range of services is designed to support women from just 12 weeks of pregnancy, through labour and birth and all the way until their baby is 9 months old.

Our free pregnancy discovery classes run each month in Solihull.  These are a great opportunity for you to come along with your partner and learn a little more about your pregnancy, birth and furthermore about placenta pills.

We have been working with couples in pregnancy since 2001 and teaching antenatal courses since 2008 and consequently we have met thousands of couples whilst they prepare for labour. These pregnancy classes also provide an opportunity for you to meet other local parents-to-be whilst creating a valuable network for the future.

As Birth Doulas we have offered face to face support at home or in hospital to over 500 local couples during their labours and births.  We have attended births across the region and our experience stretches across the following hospitals:

Warwick Hospital, UHCW Coventry Hospital, Birmingham Women’s Hospital, City Hospital, Heartlands Hospital and Good Hope.  We can also travel to Walsall Manor, George Elliot, Worcester Royal Hospital, Russels Hall and Gloucester.


‘Birthability have such an amazingly passionate and knowledgeable advocate of placenta encapsulation and offer a truly professional and personal service which I would recommend in a heart beat.’ – Claire Hundal

‘I would recommend this service to ANYONE! And thank you again to Birthability for yet another amazing service!’ – Molly Wellon

They are incredibly knowledgeable about the process and benefits of placenta encapsulation and the service they offer is very professional. – Jessica Gibson


Training and Investment:

In 2017 Sarah certified as an encapsulator with the ‘Independant Placenta Encapsulation Network‘  and we have invested in the build of a dedicated “placenta prep room” to guarantee the highest standards of hygiene to our clients.

The first Placenta Encapsulation service in the West Midlands to be awarded a 5 star rating by Environmental Health!!

Trying to choose an encapsulator? Would you like to meet us face to face?

Encapsulation is a very personal service hence we love being able to meet mums properly and get to know them personally.

Our weekly coffee mornings offer an opportunity to sit and chat to you about placenta remedies and answer your questions.  Even better we can usually introduce you to new mums that are already benefitting from their placenta pills!  They are always very happy to chat about their experiences!

Building relationships 

Sarah made it easy from start to finish. Everything you need for the hospital is provided (you just have to remember to take it!!!!) and after a text to Sarah post delivery, she arrived in the hospital about an hour later. It was wonderful to see a friendly face, but also very good service. – Amy Day
