After you've grown and nourished your baby, you may chose placenta capsules to provide the many reported benefits while encouraging a smooth transition into the fourth trimester. Placenta capsules can help balance hormones following your birth, decrease bleeding, decrease the risk for postpartum mood disorders, increase energy levels and promote breastmilk production.

Placenta Encapsulation involves dehydrating, grinding, and placing the powder into capsules for the mother to consume to assist in her postpartum recovery via two methods.

Steamed Method of Encapsulation ($250): This method is inspired by the Traditional Chinese method of gently steaming your placenta prior to the dehydration process, it is believed to promote healing and warmth from within. The steamed method is typically viewed as a gentle option and primarily chosen for postpartum women anticipating postpartum anxiety.

Standard Method of Encapsulation ($250): This method is considered by most women. The placenta is sliced without steaming and is dehydrated at a food safe temperature for the safety and security of our clients. This method typically yields more capsules with a higher iron content.
