Placenta Encapsulation – $200  ($150 for birth doula clients) Includes placenta medicine, placenta tincture, an art print, and a cord keepsake

Consumption of the placenta after birth is something that most mammals partake in, including many traditional human cultures.  Although it’s not widely practiced in the United States, placenta medicine is becoming more common in the natural birth community and many women are finding that it can help them have a healthier postpartum period*. The encapsulation process is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine; the placenta is gently steamed, dehydrated, and then ground to be put into a convenient capsule form. The capsules are taken similar to a multivitamin and have been known to increase energy, reduce stress, balance hormones, increase breast milk production, restore iron levels, decrease the incidence of postpartum depression, and decrease postpartum bleeding.*

This package includes:

a jar of capsules which usually fit into an 8oz ball jar

a 2oz tincture made with local craft vodka

a print of your placenta on 11x14in canvas made with vinegar and plant-based food coloring

a cord keepsake: your umbilical cord is dehydrated, usually in a spiral shape for long term preservation.

This package includes pick up of the placenta from your birth place and drop off at your home. Payment is due at drop off. For more info, see the document below or email me to reserve your due period and exchange contact information.
