Natural support for your postpartum recovery.
Your Placenta is Amazing...
It provides all of the nourishment your baby needs during pregnancy and it can help promote healing after your baby is born! The placenta is a treasure that has the capability to replenish your hormones, vitamins, minerals and iron after birth.
How It Works:
You will be provided with written instructions for the care of your placenta immediately after birth. I will pick up your placenta from your birthing place, unless other arrangements have been made. Placenta preparation take approximately 48 hours and your capsules will be delivered to you at home. Pill may be shipped for an added fee of $10.00 if needed. I only work on one placenta at a time in a sanitized workspace, materials used during preparation are either discarded or sterilized after every use.
Doula clients receive a $25.00 discount on all placenta encapsulation services.
The Traditional Chinese Method for encapsulating placentas involves gently cleaning the placenta and steaming the placenta with herbs to increase absorption. The the placenta is dehydrated and ground into powder to make capsules.
This method skips the steaming and goes directly to dehydration. This method will create a very nutrient and hormone dense capsule. It is not recommended if you have a history of anxiety, the jitters, insomnia or bipolar tendencies.
Enjoy a wonderful tasty smoothie that will give you an energy boost right after birth and help prevent hemorrhaging. A fresh organic fruit smoothie made will be made and delivered to you while still in the hospital. Additionally, a few placenta sized soothie cubes can be made for smoothies during the first week after birth. This services is only available if booking encapsulation services.
Add this beautiful keepsake to your placenta encapsulation. After your placenta is cleaned, food safe dye is used to make a print on acid free paper. For an additional $5.00, you can upgrade to a canvas print. This services is only available as an additional purchase.
“With my first child I had severe postpartum anxiety so when it came to my second child I decided try encapsulating my placenta, I am so glad I did. I really didn't like the idea of consuming a body part but I didn't want to suffer like I did after my first child and I would have tried anything. I really had no intentions to taking the pills but got them as a safety net. On day 4 postpartum, I stood in my living room, looked and my husband and said "I'm going to cry but don't know why". He said "Go take those pills". So I did and that was the last hormonal meltdown I had. I would recommend placenta encapsulation to every women.”

"With my first I suffered from postpartum depression. I would start crying every day at 4:00pm and could not stop. Some days I couldn’t stand to hear her cry and I felt like breastfeeding/pumping was a nuisance. With my second on the way I decided to try placenta encapsulation to help with the postpartum depression. It made such a huge difference. I felt connected with the baby, energized and overall just in a good place. I plan to do placenta encapsulation for any future births.

"I decided to do placenta pills with my middle child. I did not know much about them except that it really helped a friend, so i decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised! I found the capsules really helped even out my emotions. I still felt everything, but the ride was much smoother."
