Placenta Encapsulation

Placenta encapsulation is the preparation, dehydration, and encapsulation of a placenta after birth for a mother’s consumption. Benefits include:

  • Help to balance your hormones
  • Replenish depleted iron levels
  • Assist the uterus to return to its pre-pregnancy state
  • Increase your energy levels
  • Reduce post-natal bleeding
  • Increase milk production – this has been proven in a study
  • Make for a happier, more enjoyable post-natal period
