Placenta Encapsulation Services

Though the tradition of consuming a placenta is often met with confusion and wrinkled noses, it’s an excellent way to aid in recovery after birth. The practice is quite common and
many parents swear by it. However, if you’re not sure if it’s for you, that’s okay too! See below for more information about our placenta encapsulation service.


What is Placenta Encapsulation?

Placenta encapsulation is the process of preparing the birthing parent’s placenta after the birth of baby by dehydrating, powdering, and placing it into consumable capsules. There are two preparation methods for placenta encapsulation:

Steamed akin to the Traditional Chinese Method

This method helps more with the emotional energy. It is safe to use for frozen placentas.


This method requires that the placenta be very fresh (within 48 hrs), but maintains the protein and enzymes that naturally occur. Raw is the inverse of steamed; it helps more with the physical energy.

Benefits for the Birthing Parent

  • Reintroduces beneficial hormones, proteins, and other nutrients to the birthing parent’s body post labor and birth
  • Helps restore physical & emotional balance
  • Lessens the risk of “baby blues” that may lead to postpartum depression
