The placenta is perfectly created by your body to nourish your baby during pregnancy. Nearly all mammals consume their placenta after giving birth in order to retain the important nutrients and hormones. Placenta encapsulation allows you all the benefits of the placenta in a more palatable way.
Consuming the placenta has been known to:
- -balance your hormones
- -decrease the incidence of postpartum depression
- -increase energy
- -facilitates a faster recovery from birth
- -lessen postpartum bleeding
- -help your milk production
We offer two methods:
- High-potency Encapsulation (Recommended)
The High-Potency Method involves drying the raw placenta at a low temperature, keeping a high level of the hormones and nutrients, and leaving the enzymes intact. These placenta pills are known to have more of a “kick”– they contain a higher hormone content than the traditional pills. Mothers often report experiencing a large energy boost when taking them. These can be taken in a smaller dosage, one in the morning and an optional dose in the afternoon or as needed. This method produces more pills and is taken at a smaller dosage, allowing you to enjoy the benefits over a longer period of time.
- TCM Encapsulation
Inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the TCM Method involves steaming the placenta, dehydrating it at a low temperature for several hours, then grinding it into powder form and putting the powder into capsules. TCM placenta pills offer a steady dose of hormones and nutrients. It is often taken as a high dose the first week, and then steadily decreased over the next couple weeks as your hormones balance. While we recommend the high-potency encapsulation, we continue to provide TCM encapsulation to mothers who value the original methodology, though it will produce fewer pills which need to be taken more frequently to achieve the same effect.
We also offer a Placenta Print & Cord Keepsake: These are literally once in a lifetime keepsakes. The placenta print is made using the natural placenta blood to create a “tree of life”. The cord keepsake is made by forming the umbilical cord into the shape of a heart and dried.
Depending on the size of the placenta, you can expect between 70-200 pills. In addition to encapsulation you can also choose to have a placenta smoothie that gives you the immediate benefit of your placenta in a nourishing smoothie prepared for you right after birth, made with fruit and a small piece of your placenta. The tincture in the standard package allows you to benefit from your placenta for years to come, in times of stress or transition and the return of your cycle.
