The placenta is an amazing organ!
Some of the potential benefits of ingesting the placenta include:
- Improved postpartum mood
- Restored and/or balanced post-birth hormones
- Healthy milk production
- Improved recovery from birth
- Faster healing
- Lessened fatigue
We use the Traditional Method of Encapsulation, which is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine. Prior to dehydration, the placenta is cleaned and steamed which ensures that germs and bacteria are eliminated. Then, it is dehydrated for at least twelve hours, ground into powder, and placed into capsules. Preparation takes about four hours over the course of two days and takes place in the client’s home — at all times, universal precautions for blood-borne pathogens and strict food handling standards are practiced. The fee for everything is $250.
Additional available services include a keepsake placenta print, placenta tincture, and placenta salve.
