What is Placenta Encapsulation?
Placenta Encapsulation is the process of carefully and lovingly processing, dehydrating, and then encapsulating your freshly birthed placenta for consumption. Doing so bridges the loss of hormones and nutrients the placenta was providing. After birth, a woman’s hormones change quickly. There is a severe drop in estrogen and progesterone. For many women, the sudden loss of hormones and the depletion of nutrients has adverse physical and psychological effects.
Placenta Encapsulation offers a bridge to help facilitate postpartum healing.
The placenta holds amazing nutrients and hormones that facilitate healing from pregnancy and birth. The placenta can help replace vitamins depleted during pregnancy such as iron and B6 as well as regulate hormones such as oxytocin and prolactin.
Placenta pills are taken shortly after giving birth, and can be taken during a woman’s menstrual period or during menopause. Mothers who ingest their placenta report less incidences of postpartum depression, and research shows that placenta encapsulation can help milk supply*.
Some of the benefits of Placenta Encapsulation Include:
- Noticeable increase in energy
- Hormone balance
- An increase in lactation with an enriched milk supply
- Decrease in postpartum bleeding
- A good source of supplemental iron
- Help with insomnia, sleep disorders, and overall better sleep
- Defense against postpartum depression due to regulated hormones
- Faster healing of tissue
Placenta Encapsulation Services: $275- $350
We offer placenta encapsulation services in your home or in our private workspace. We have two methods we can use to encapsulate your placenta, and you can add on a tincture, salve, or essence.
This method begins with an overall health check and cleaning of the placenta. We then prepare your placenta for dehydration in your home, where the placenta will dehydrate for 12 hours. After dehydration, the placenta will be ground into a fine powder and placed into capsules for consumption.
A placenta usually makes between 150 – 175 capsules depending on size.
This method begins with an overall health check and cleaning of your placenta. Your placenta is then steamed with warming herbs: lemongrass, ginger, and spicy green pepper. The herbal bath simmers for an hour and produces a delicious broth you may drink or consume over rice.
After the broth is created, the placenta is then prepared for dehydration and encapsulation in your home, following the process above.
