Placenta Encapsulation Baltimore
Placenta Encapsulation has been practiced in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries to treat postpartum hormonal imbalances, and to aid in the relief of fatigue and lactation issues after giving birth.
Science of Placenta Encapsulation
Studies have shown the placenta to contain many minerals and hormones, including iron and progesterone, that are crucial for healthy blood, energy and hormonal functioning during the postpartum period.

The Placenta Encapsulation Process
During this two days process (4 hours total), the placenta is steamed, dried, powdered and put into 80-140 capsules.
In the case of a hospital birth, Odile assists in the process of working with the hospital to safely retrieve your Placenta for processing. In the case of a home birth, your placenta never leaves your home. In either case, Odile brings equipment to your house, completely sanitizes the work space, and leaves your kitchen spotless!
