We offer placenta encapsulation, tinctures, salves, prints, and umbilical keepsakes. Placenta encapsulation is a method of preparing the placenta for use after the birth of your baby. Just as the placenta protected, nourished and supported your baby, your placenta can continue it’s job after birth by aiding with lactation, recovery, energy, easing life transitions, increasing postnatal iron levels, lessening postnatal bleeding, aiding postpartum depression, and helping to alleviate the discomforts of menstruation and menopause.
Tinctures and salves are a great way of extending the 'life' of your placenta benefits. Tinctures take time to mature and can be saved for future uses such as menopause and times of emotional/hormonal adjustment. Salves can be used to promote healing, especially following a cesarean birth.
We prefer to prepare your placenta in your home. However, if you prefer your placenta to be prepared off-site, it is available. In-home preparation is $200. Off-site preparation is $270.
