PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION 2018-12-03T17:07:20+00:00

Why placenta encapsulation?.
Consuming one’s placenta following birth has a rich history.

Placenta encapsulation involves steaming the placenta, drying at high temperature & inserting the ground placenta into a capsule.  Ideally you pre-book your placenta encapsulation while still pregnant. Early booking ensures room in the calender. However, this is not always necessary – check in!

Taking placenta capsules can:

  • Help you to recover more quickly from birth
  • Bring the body back into balance with your own hormones, made perfectly for you
  • Ease postpartum depression symptoms
  • Enhance & support your milk supply
  • Increase your energy & combat fatigue
  • Increase postpartum levels of B6, iron & protein

How are my capsules prepared?

  • Your placenta will be prepared by a specialist who has been trained and certified by Placenta Benefits (PBI)
  • All encapsulations take place in a dedicated work room & workspace, to Health and Safety in Food Hygiene standards, using medical grade cleaning & sterilizing agents
  • The placenta is steamed with herbs (added to the water only) according to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) recipes
  • The placenta is dried  and ground into a powder
  • The dried placenta is ground into a powder and put into an empty vegetable capsule

What will I receive after my placenta is encapsulated?

  • The average placenta makes about 75-150 pills. The capsules will be beautifully packaged for you
  • You will also be left with instructions for consumption
