Placenta Medicine, Worthy of You
During pregnancy the placenta provides oxygen and nutrients to the baby. It also produces hormones that support the pregnancy, keeping mom and baby healthy. Dr. Oz has referred to the placenta as the ICU of the womb! These miraculous benefits do not have to end when the baby is born.
By consuming your placenta, you can replenish the nutrients that are loss when baby arrives. The placenta is great source for protein, iron, and vitamin B6. Most mothers get AN energy boost and an overall good feeling after consuming placenta. These moms are less likely to experience the baby blues, a period of sadness that sometimes follows the birth of a baby. 60-80% of women experience the baby blues, and 15-20% of new moms experience postpartum depression.
So what are the benefits of encapsulating and consuming your placenta?
Avoid or manage the “baby blues”

Is consuming your placenta an evidence based practice? Read the studies and research that has been gathered so far.
I practice the Traditional Chinese Medicine method when encapsulating placentas and was trained by a local midwife. The process involves gently washing/cleaning the placenta, dehydration, grinding using a mortar and pedestal, and encapsulated with vegetarian capsules.
The cost of placenta encapsulation services is $200.
I will pick up your placenta at your birth place and can usually return your capsules within a 48 hour period along with written instructions and a umbilical cord keepsake.
