Our bodies are truly incredible.
In the uterus, right alongside a baby grows a strong and healthful organ that serves as an incredible interface between the mother and the developing fetus. Not only does this make oxygen diffusion, waste excretion, and immune, endocrine, and all other developmental functions possible, it also serves as an incredible resource for the mother in the postpartum period. We have become the only mammals to retire the practice of taking our placenta after birth. Its like nature’s remedy!
Placenta is composed of several healing proteins and hormones:
Prolactin: A hormone that promotes lactation
Oxytocin: “The love hormone” that promotes pain relief, and as it’s also released during labor, birth & breastfeeding; it encourages hormonal bonding with your baby and an increase in contentment
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH): Helps boost energy levels and aids in recovery from taxing events
Cortisone: Another hormone that tackles stress and unlocks energy stores
Interferon: An antibody that stimulates the immune system to protect against infections
Prostaglandins: Anti-inflammatory agents designed to speed up recovery
Hemoglobin: Protein that replenishes iron deficiency and anemia, a common postpartum condition
Urokinase inhibiting factor and factor XIII: Enzyme-like agents that stop bleeding and promote wound healing throughout the body
Gammaglobulins: Immune booster proteins that help protect against postpartum infections

Placenta Services We Offer:
Placenta Encapsulation Bundle #1 | $250 Booking in Advance | $300 Impromptu
In order to preserve the placenta's delicate molecular structures we recommend the Raw Start Encapsulation Method (where the placenta is dehydrated at 160° for a minimum of 12 hours) for those who are a good candidate.
As an alternative, we also offer the Traditional Method, which is inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine. With this method, the placenta is lightly steamed before dehydrating at 160°.
Each placenta produces 100-200 capsules. The bigger your baby, the bigger your placenta!
Each Bundle includes:
Placenta Pick Up from your Birthplace
Placenta Encapsulation Services
Cord Keepsake (wherever possible)
Postpartum Usage Guide
Capsule Delivery to You
Placenta Print | $45
Placenta prints make beautiful art, you can frame it and admire the amazing tree of life that nourished your child for years to come. We will use your placenta to create a classic “tree” print on high quality watercolor paper before beginning the process for encapsulation. The result is an organic piece of art that is unique to you.
4oz Placenta Tincture | $45
A tincture is made with fresh placenta components steeped in grain-based alcohol. The tincture is swirled daily for six weeks. This shelf-stable placenta infusion can be used long after your capsules are gone, and even into menopause.
4oz Placenta Salve | $55
At the time of encapsulation, we are able to use a small amount of the dehydrated placenta to make a custom placenta healing salve. This very nourishing salve is excellent on all areas of the body, including the fragile facial skin and areas of problem skin conditions.
