Placenta Encapsulation


Placenta encapsulation is becoming more widely recognized for its benefit to women in the postpartum period. The body undergoes a major hormonal shift during childbirth, so the act of reintroducing these hormones to your system may provide many benefits. While research on placentopohagia is still in its early stages, the potential benefits and anecdotal evidence is too abundant to discount. Almost every mammal consumes their placenta after birth, it has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years and has also been used in skin care products. Because the placenta is a completely natural substance, created by your own body, encapsulation is worth considering as a component of your postpartum recovery plan.



Potential benefits:
  • Decreased risk of postpartum baby blues and depression
  • Increased milk production

  • Natural pain relief after labor and childbirth

  • Promote healing and recovery

  • Replenish Iron supply

  • Decreased postpartum bleeding

  • Increased energy

  • Balance hormones

  • Strengthen endocrine system


The placenta is prepared using the traditional method. In this method the placenta is drained of blood, steamed with organic ginger and lemon, dehydrated, then encapsulated in size '0' vegetarian capsules. The traditional method is in alignment with traditional chinese medicine practices that have used the placenta for thousands of years

Blood Borne Pathogen and OSHA guidelines are followed when cleaning and sanitizing equipment and work areas.
