Placenta Encapsulation


Many folks choose to encapsulate their placenta after hearing about the emotional and physical health benefits this practice brings to the immediate postpartum period. This gives an opportunity to take a holistic approach to healing after birth.

There is sufficient anecdotal evidence that indicates that the consumption of the placenta after childbirth can increase milk production, heighten energy and mood, decrease severity of postpartum mood disorders and elevate feelings of overall wellbeing.


I use the traditional Chinese Medicine Preparation of steaming the placenta with the ginger, jalapeño and lemon creating an energetically warm effect. After the placenta has been steamed, it is then thinly sliced and dehydrated, ground into a fine powder & encapsulated for consumption. If you would prefer vegan, kosher or halal capsules they are available upon request.


It is ideal for your placenta to be picked up within three days of birth. Ideally, I will pick up your placenta as soon as the baby is born. I will pick-up at the hospital, birth center, or at your home and will begin the process immediately after pick up. You will have the capsules returned to you within 24-48 hours.
