Placenta Services

It is an honor for me to encapsulate your placenta after birth.

I maintain the highest standards in safety and quality.  All placentas are processed in a dedicated workspace used only for placenta encapsulation.  All equipment has been carefully chosen to maintain the integrity of the placenta throughout the process. Your placenta pills contain only processed placenta, with no additives of any kind.

The Encapsulation Process

Inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), this method involves steaming the placenta, dehydrating it at a controlled constant temperature, then grinding it into a fine powder and putting it into capsules.

  • I only use specialized equipment that can be fully disassembled for complete sanitation after each individual placenta.
  • Your placenta is kept labeled with your name during the duration of its transportation, handling, processing and shipping.
  • I visually examine each placenta for abnormalities and signs of deterioration, infection, or contamination before allowing encapsulation
  • Dehydrated placenta is ground into a fine powder to ensure that is dispensed evenly throughout the pills for consistent dosage. 
  • I use all natural gelatin capsules; gluten, GMO, and preservative free that are Kosher and Halal certified. Vegan capsules available upon request.

Placentas have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as long ago as in the 1500’s, which is longer than modern medicine has existed. It has been continued to be used due to an abundance of great properties believed to make a huge difference to a new mother’s mental health, recovery and well being.

Cultures that find it customary to prepare the placenta for the mother or are known to consume part or all of the placenta include the Chinese, Vietnamese, Hungarians and Italians. These cultures believe that the placenta is rich in nutrients that will greatly assist the mother to recover from childbirth, including slowing and stopping hemorrhaging during childbirth and helping with milk supply.

Recommended Dosage

  • 2 capsules 3 times a day until supply is finished.
  • Alternate dosage: 3 capsules twice daily until supply is finished. 

I recommend to start taking the pills immediately upon receiving them. The first few weeks postpartum is when your body benefits the most from the balancing and supportive nature of the placenta pills. Tinctures work differently, and can be taken later on during the postpartum period or during other phases of life where extra support is desired.
