Placenta encapsulation is the process of preparing the mother’s placenta after the birth of her baby by dehydrating, powdering, and placing it into consumable capsules.The ingestion of the placenta is known as “ Placentophagy”. The purpose of Placentophagy is to help the mother reintroduce beneficial hormones, minerals, and other nutrients to help restore a more physical and emotional balance after birth.
Some benefits may include:
Increased milk production
Creating a consistent flow of oxytocin (the bonding and love hormone)
Helping with mood and prevention of postpartum depression
Replenishing iron levels
Balancing out postpartum hormones until your body can regulate them on its own
Warming the body, preventing a stagnation of energy
This sacred medicine that your body creates has been revered for its power, spirit and rich nutrients in cultures across the globe. It is our honor to provide your encapsulated placenta to you to support your physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing after birth.
Placenta Tincture & Print
Tincture: A tincture can be used later when mother's menses return, when her
daughter begins her cycle, and during other times of stress (illness, teething). It requires a 6 week period for steeping so when it is returned to you it will not be ready for use.
Placenta Print: The fetal side of the placenta looks like the Tree of Life, which is very fitting for a keepsake.
