The Placenta is an amazing organ that offers nutrients and support to your baby during pregnancy and can be very beneficial for Mom after delivery.
Did you know that we are the only mammal who no longer consumes our placenta after birth? The Placenta is a wonderful thing, rich in vitamins and nutrients that are essential to nurturing your baby during pregnancy. These vitamins and nutrients are also extremely beneficial to Mommy during the postpartum period, as well as weeks and even years to come. By consuming your placenta, the benefits may include: preventing/reducing the risk of the "Baby Blues" or postpartum depression, replenishing iron and B vitamins, balancing hormones, increased milk supply, protection from infection, natural pain relief, and faster recovery time.
Placenta Capsule Preparation:
Using the Steam (Heated) Method of preparation, your placenta is lightly steamed and dehydrated and ground into a fine powder. It is then placed into capsules. This process utilizes Chinese Medicine methods to warm the mother's body, replenish the blood and balance Qi.
Steam Method capsules: $175.00 (for twins, add $25.00) - includes capsule preparation, an umbilical cord keepsake, and suggested dosage instructions
Using the Raw Method of preparation is similar to the Steam Method with the exception of the steaming step. Your placenta is dehydrated at a lower temperature to preserve its natural nutrients and yields a higher potency capsule.
Raw Method capsules: $175.00 (for twins, add $25.00) - includes capsule preparation, an umbilical cord keepsake, and suggested dosage instructions
Pricing includes pickup and delivery within Franklin County. For homes outside of Franklin County, a mileage fee may be assessed for time and travel. To avoid the extra fee, arrangements for drop off and pickup can be made. Shipping options are also available.
If you would like to have your placenta encapsulated, it is best to call or email us to let us know your plans prior to your baby being born. However, we can still encapsulate last minute, so don't hesitate to call and inquire about our availability, even if your baby is already born. If arranging ahead of time, please send a $25 non-refundable deposit to our office. This deposit holds your place on our calendar and is applied to your balance once we've picked up your placenta. On your deposit check, please let us know which process you would like, where you will be delivering, and your due date. If you do not specify or prefer one method over the other, we will use the steam process. Once your baby is born, we will make arrangements for us to pick up your placenta, encapsulate it, and then deliver it back to you either at the hospital or your home. Once we have picked up your placenta, it usually takes about 24 hours to encapsulate it and return it to you. If you are interested in more information or you would like to have your placenta encapsulated, please call or email us.
