With experience of over 10 years, I am very passionate about placenta remedies and am committed to continuing to provide excellence in this area of expertise. I never cut corners when it comes to proper cleaning and sterilization techniques. I work closely with other Doulas, Midwives, local hospitals AND have a very smooth process for retrieving placentas and delivering the finished products! The relationships I have with hospital staff are of utmost importance and I continue to build bridges and make strides in this specialized area of healthcare. I am truly honored each time a Mother chooses me to provide these services for her. Thank you for referring me to your friends and family!
Perfect for Postpartum
The placenta is made by you, for you, and holds key nutrients and hormones that are perfect for replenishing your depleted body during the postpartum period. The placenta is dried, processed and encapsulated to make consumption effortless.
*Some benefits of consuming Placenta post-birth include:
Allow a quicker return to health after birth
Increase quality and production of breast milk
Increase in energy
Decrease in pain after delivery
Decrease likelihood of postpartum mood disorders
Decrease likelihood of insomnia or sleep disorders
*Medicinal uses of the placenta: http://www.gentlebirth.org/archives/eatplcnt.html
There are two ways in which we can prepare your placenta:
Steamed - Placenta is steamed prior to slicing. It is then dehydrated and ground into a powder. The powder is then placed into capsules (we use Vegan gelcaps).
Raw - Raw Placenta is sliced, then dehydrated. The dried placenta is then ground into a powder and then placed into capsules (we use Vegan gelcaps).
Encapsulation Services Includes:
Retrieval of your placenta at agreed-upon location.
Proper transportation and storage of your placenta.
Preparation of your placenta as specified by you.
Hand delivery of completed capsules to your home (or mailed).

You may contact me at any time with questions throughout the length of time that you're using the capsules.
Most placentas yield between 75-250 gelcaps. Dosage is subject to the method chosen for encapsulation. You will receive your finished product within 2-3 days. I pride myself on speed, however sometimes there may be a delay, especially if I have a high volume of births. I never process more than one clients placenta at a time. Capsules will keep for a period of 2 years with proper storage.
Tincture: I also offer Placenta Tincture Preparation. Placenta Tincture is made from a piece of the placenta steeped in high grade organic alcohol over a period of 6 or more weeks. The tincture is used for emotional stability, and may also be useful during your menstrual cycle, and menopause. $30
Prints: Using acid-free archival paper, we can capture the beauty of your placenta for a lifetime. Prints are done with food-grade dye, safe for consumption. Size is 11x14 and can be framed and hung in your child's room or kept in a scrapbook. FREE or $30 without PES.
Once your baby is born, please contact me to set up a time to pick up your placenta. Typically, the local hospitals release placentas within 24 hours. If you are purchasing Placenta Encapsulation Services in addition to Birth Doula Services, generally, I will be able to take your placenta home after your birth. Sometimes hospital regulations do not allow me to remove the placenta from hospital premises immediately after birth, so other arrangements will be made. If your placenta will not be able to be retrieved for more than 48 hours, I request that it be frozen until I can begin the process of encapsulation. More information will be given once you have contracted with me for services.
I follow OSHA & EPA guidelines for blood-borne pathogen transmission, infection control & standards for sanitation, and safe food handling. Disposable equipment is used when possible, and other equipment is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected for each client.
