Placenta Encapsulation as defined by The American Pregnancy Association, "is the practice of ingesting the placenta after it has been steamed, dehydrated, ground, and placed into pills. Traditionally, this is taken by the mother and is believed to impart numerous health benefits. It is frequently taken shortly after giving birth, during a woman’s menstrual period, or during menopause with the belief that it helps counter some of the symptoms of menopause" The placenta is an amazingly complex organ and holds many nutrients such as Prolactin, Oxytocin, and Iron. As well as many other hormones and nutrients, the particular ones listed may help the mother have a faster recovery, her bleeding may lessen, her breast milk may come in sooner and be more ample, her overall mood and energy levels may be higher and she may re-balance, hormonally sooner than she would normally expect. Once a client books their placenta encapsulation, they will receive a confirmation email and detailed list of instructions that will include when and how to contact me on the birth day. Also instruction on how to store the placenta after the birth etc. The client simply births their baby, and calls or texts me to let me know the placenta is ready for pick up. The placenta will be picked up soon after the birth and processed immediately and the finished products will be delivered back to the client within 48-72 hours along with full instructions on consumption and storage. I am available for guidance for as long as the placenta products are being consumed. I happily answer any questions my clients may have.
