We are proud to offer our moms the option of having their placenta encapsulated after birth!
What is it?
Placenta Encapsulation is where a trained specialist picks up your placenta from the hospital after birth and then processes it into capsules.
Why do people do it?
The placenta contains large amounts of iron and many hormones that leave the body as soon as the baby is born. There are numerous medical research studies that show the benefits of placenta supplementation after birth. Encapsulating it is a great convenient way to do this.
Here are some of the reported benefits of placenta encapsulation:
- Increased milk production
- Boosted energy levels
- Absorbable iron source
- Many mothers report a decrease in postpartum depression and more stable mood after birth
(Disclaimer: Gentle Childbirth Services always recommends seeking the help of a qualified professional for postpartum depression)
$50 deposit required, balance due on delivery.
Once notified of your baby's birth, the placenta will be picked up from the hospital. Delivery will be in 48 hours or less from time of pick up.
Additional $50 for non-heat processing method; turn around time may be longer than 48 hours due to the length of the process.
