You may not have heard about placenta encapsulation, but its becoming an essential part of postpartum recovery for many women. Placentas have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine long before modern medicine even existed. The placenta is believed to be rich in nutrients and helps women recover more readily after childbirth.
The benefits that women experience when consuming their placenta as capsules can be increased energy and mood, increased milk supply, replenished iron levels, reduction of bleeding postpartum, a balance in hormones, reduction of the occurrence of postpartum depression, no sign of the baby blues, assists the uterus in returning to its normal size after birth, and a decrease in insomnia or sleep disorders.

FEES AND DETAILS OF PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION
During the encapsulation process, the placenta is treated with respect and care, in a hygienic, safe and clean environment. I am now only offering Raw placenta encapsulation. If there is something medical that contraindicates raw encapsulation, I do use the steaming (TCM) process where needed or requested.
RAW Placenta Encapsulation $290 (includes pick up and drop off)
It is believed that the raw method retains more iron and nutrients because it skips the steaming process. The raw method involves thinly slicing it in its raw form, dehydrating the placenta, the cord and sac, and grinding the pieces in a high power food processor. This fine powder is put into vegetarian capsules and is then ready to consume.
Your placenta will be steamed if necessary for medical reasons and for your safety.
This services includes:
-Pick up and drop off to you at your home/hospital.
– Your own placenta dehydrated, ground and put into capsules (usually between 140 – 220)
– Information leaflet
– Cord keepsake and photo of placenta if requested
If you'd like to drop off the placenta and pick up the capsules yourself, the price is $250.
