What is Placenta Encapsulation?
Studies have shown the placenta to contain an abundance of minerals and hormones, including iron and progesterone, that are crucial for healthy blood, energy and hormonal functioning during the postpartum period.
Having your Placenta encapsulated is a traditional method of replenishing the body and mind, after experiencing the great depleting marathon that is birth.
The Placenta Encapsulation Process
During this two days process that takes 4 hours total, the placenta is steamed, dried, powdered and put into 80-140 capsules.
In the case of a hospital birth, our Certified Placenta Encapsulator 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, your Encapsulator brings equipment to your house, completely sanitizes the work space, and leaves your kitchen spotless.
Thorough instructions on dosage and storage will be provided by the Encapsulator, who will follow-up after a week as well.
Full service Placenta Encapsulation cost is $399.
