Placenta encapsulation (placentophagy) is the process of ingesting your own placenta via capsules. We take the “gross” out of it. It’s a beautiful and natural way to support you during the postpartum recovery. Here are just some of the reasons why a new mother would want to give it a try. When your placenta leaves your body so do all of the hormones that were supporting you throughout your pregnancy. This hormone dump can cause many uncomfortable and unwanted side effects including mood swings, anxiety, sadness or irritability. Placenta encapsulation may help reduce these symptoms. It may also help with milk production, energy, and mood stability. It has also been reported to help with quicker healing times and shortened postpartum bleeding.
Your placenta is prepared for encapsulation using the Traditional Chinese Method, (TCM). I am certified through the Association of Placenta Preparation Arts (APPA) and adhere to the utmost of cleanliness and safety precautions. I am OSHA compliant and have completed training in bloodborne pathogens & infection control. TCM is the most common method used by placenta encapsulators. Your placenta is first gently cleaned with water. It is then steamed and thinly sliced before the dehydration process. I then grind it into a fine powder before it is placed into capsules.
Your placenta is all that is in your capsules. It was perfectly made for you by you. I keep the process very natural. Nothing will be added as to eliminate any risk of allergies.
