For centuries, across the world women have ingested their placentas to promote recovery from birth.
There is no supplement, organic or man-made, that can compare with the placenta’s healing
and nutritive benefits to the postpartum mother.
While there have only been a few scientific studies done
on the effects of ingesting the placenta, both research and
anecdotal evidence suggests the following:
Increased milk supply
Regulation of hormones
A faster recovery to the body's pre-pregnancy state
Increased iron levels
A happier mood postpartum
Decreased postpartum bleeding
Decreased likelihood of PMAD (Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders)

Your placenta is perfectly formed to nourish your baby in utero. It contains a delicate balance of
nutrients and hormones, and once detached, the drop in hormones often leaves us feeling excessively
tired and moody; even prolonging the healing process. Supplementing your body’s efforts with your encapsulated placenta can make the transition from pregnancy to postpartum gentler and easier.
Our Postpartum Placenta Specialists are thoroughly trained in the Traditional Method of encapsulation,
based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). We hold ourselves to the highest standards of cleanliness
and safety and perform each encapsulation in the client’s home. This allows for complete transparency
of our process and ensures protection from cross-contamination. We follow universal precautions
for bloodborne pathogens and strict food handling standards.
Above all, we treat your placenta with honor and respect and recognize the
sacred qualities it holds as the nourishment source for your baby and you.
