Placenta encapsulation is the act of ingesting one’s placenta to absorb extra nutrients and hormones held in the placenta. This process includes ensuring the placenta is dehydrated, ground, then put into capsules with the intent to consume. Our traditional method of encapsulation is based off of traditional Chinese medicine, and involves splitting the process over the period of two days. This is done in your home in order to ensure that only the highest standards of sanitizing, handling blood born pathogens, and postpartum support are met.
Some of the benefits of placenta encapsulation can include:
an increase in milk production
improved postpartum mood
an overall restoration of the post birth hormones and recovery.
