Placenta Encapsulation: $350 (Tincture add-on: $40)
Placenta encapsulation is a process based on practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This organ nourishes your baby for nine months in the womb. The purpose of the mother ingesting encapsulated placenta is to reintroduce the beneficial vitamins, minerals, hormones, proteins, and other nutrients to her body following labor and birth. Placenta encapsulation offers the mothers an opportunity to put this sacred object to use, and utilizing it to benefit her and her baby.
Your placenta is created by you, just for you. It has been known to:
- help restore a balanced body function
- minimize the “baby blues” and postpartum depression
- increase breast-milk production and quality
- lessen bleeding postnatally and shorten healing time
- increase maternal energy levels
- provide an over-all feeling of wellness
The placenta is packed with healing substances. These hormones, chemicals, iron and proteins are believed to aid in postnatal recovery.
Placenta Encapsulation – $350
Encapsulation of the placenta into pills is the most common way to consume your placenta. I do a Traditional Chinese Medicine method, where the placenta is first steamed to provide warming properties and is also a gentle way to receive all of the wonderful benefits the placenta has to offer!
Tincture – $40
Tinctures are made from a part of the placenta being added to 100+ proof alcohol and aged for 6 weeks. This is a great way to stretch out the longevity of the benefits of the placenta! Just a few drops can help balance hormones postpartum, during your first menstrual cycle after birth, and even during menopause.
