Placenta Encapsulation

Picture by Sherly Lopez

Traditionally, placenta capsules are used to help:

  • Balance your hormones
  • Increase milk supply
  • Combat Fatigue
  •  Increase your energy
  • Prevent signs of aging
  •  Recover more quickly from childbirth
  •  Bring the body back into balance
  • Prevent and treat the “baby blues
  •  Shorten postnatal bleeding time
  • Increase postnatal iron levels


Studies show that placenta is extremely nutrient rich, high in iron, protein, vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B6 and of course, your own natural hormones, making it perfectly made for you, by you.


Placenta tinctures are a wonderful way for mothers (and their babies and children!) to enjoy the benefit of placenta remedies for a lifetime. Mothers can use their tincture after their pills are gone to reduce stress and help them to cope with life’s transitions and even menopause. 

Here are just a few of the scientifically known hormones and their functions that are produced by the placenta and are still viable and intact after delivery. 

• Prolactin: promotes lactation

• Oxytocin: for pain and bonding; also known as the “love” hormone

• Interferon: stimulates the immune system to protect against infection

• Thyroid Stimulating Hormone: boosts energy and helps recover from stressful events

• Cortisone: combats stress and unlocks stores of energy

• Hemoglobin: replenishes iron deficiency and anemia

• Gammaglobulin: immune booster that helps protect against postpartum infections

• Urokinase Inhibiting Factor & Factor XIII: stops bleeding and enhances wound healing


Service include:

  • Pick up of placenta**
  • Placenta Encapsulation (capsules)
  • Two keepsakes (cord, print) 
  • Delivery of products**

Optional:
  • A Homeopathic or Mother Tincture (Extra 20.00 dollars)

 

Fee: 170.00 dollars if only need this service or 150.00 if combine with doula services.
