Placenta Services

The placenta is one of the most overlooked parts of pregnancy and birth, but this magical organ can help support you even after the baby is born. If youu2019re concerned about postpartum depression or anxiety, anemia, or dramatic hormone changes, consuming capsules, tinctures, or smoothies made from your placenta can help regulate and replenish hormones and nutrients after birth.

Potential Benefits of Encapsulation

  • reducing the risk of postpartum depression or ‘baby blues’
  • replenishing your iron from blood loss during birth
  • lending you a consistent flow of oxytocin long after your birth euphoria ends
  • providing the HPL (human placenta lactogen) hormone to help establish early and healthy milk supply
  • stabilizing your ever-changing post-birth hormones
  • replenish your B-vitamins and energy that were used during the labor and birthing process
  • protection from infection and bleeding due to retained placenta tissue or membrane
  • natural pain relief from the labor and birth of the baby

Don’t worry about having to see or handle the placenta if you’re squeamish. I will coordinate pickup from the hospital or your home, preparation, encapsulation, and drop off. Within 48-72 hours, you will receive your capsules, a cord keepsake (spiral or heart shape upon request), a commemorative Tree of Life print, dosage and storage instructions, one postpartum visit, and any additional tinctures or salves. We will go through all instructions for pickup and dropoff during a prenatal meetup.

Choose from these encapsulation methods:

RAW Method

The RAW Method is inspired by the Raw Foods Movement. The placenta is never heated above 160 degrees Fahrenheit. This method creates a very nutrient and hormonal dense capsule.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

The Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) inspired preparation involves lightly steaming the cleansed and drained placenta with lemon and ginger before dehydrating and grinding into capsules. These elements assist in adding warmth to the body which enhances the effect of the placenta and speeds healing.

Pricing

Placenta encapsulation service starts at $200 and includes pick-up, drop-off, preparation of capsules, cord keepsake, Tree of Life print, dosage and storage instructions, and one postpartum visit.

Other Products

Having a tincture made from your placenta is a great way to preserve and extend its many benefits, especially after you have finished your capsules. A small portion of your raw placenta is prepared and infused in alcohol for six weeks. It will be delivered in a 2 oz. amber dropper glass bottle six weeks after the initial pickup of your placenta. You can dilute in a beverage or place drops directly under your tongue. 4 oz. – $25 / 6oz. – $35
