Service

You just had a baby! The last thing you or your partner needs to worry about is keeping your placenta at a safe temperature and/or transporting it to your home amongst curious side glances of friends and family.

We pick up your placenta soon after birth and return your pills back to you the following day at your birthing place.

Encapsulation

Benefits of consuming your placenta may include:

  • Lessening the risk of Baby Blues
  • Natural pain relief
  • Stabilize post birth hormones
  • Replenish depleted iron levels
  • Establishing an early and healthy milk supply
  • Reduce post-birth bleeding
  • Replenish B vitamins and energy
  • Lending a constant flow of oxytocin long after your birth euphoria ends
  • Make for a happier, more enjoyable postpartum period
Nearly 80% of women experience symptoms of baby blues within the first week of birth. Recent studies are showing that mothers who ingest their placenta have lower instances of emotional issues while reporting increased energy and milk supply.

Your body has become accustom to higher hormone levels that sustained your pregnancy. Ingesting your placenta enables you to slowly and safely wean yourself off of elevated hormone levels until your body stabilizes.

Tincture

A tincture picks up where the capsules leave off and adds longevity to your placenta. A thumbnail size portion of raw placenta and a few drops of umbilical cord blood, which is rich in T-cells and stem cells, is added to 100 proof vodka. The tincture is placed in sunlight for 4 hours and then transferred to a dark, cool, cabinet and allowed to ferment for 6 weeks. If the solution will be used before 6 months the placenta piece is strained using a cheesecloth. The longer the placenta sits in the alcohol the more potent it will become and the more the tissue will break down. The tincture has an almost indefinite shelf life if stored properly and can be utilized for energy, transition, stress, hormone stabilization and are therefore great for returning cycles and menopause. You can also heat the tincture to burn off the alcohol. The biological daughter of the placenta owner can use the tincture when menstruation begins for cycle stabilization and hormone balance.

Salve

Placenta salve can be used to heal C-Section incisions, lessen scarring, itching, and discomfort after the wound has closed. It can also be used as soon as 3 days postpartum for hemorrhoids, perineal tearing, burns, diaper rash, eczema, sunburns and skin irritations. Safe for baby as long as there are no skin sensitivities (test a small area first). 3-4 capsules worth of placenta is infused with Comfrey Leaf (helps heal wounds quickly. Great for burns, blisters and inflammation. Comfrey has a soothing effect on any organ it comes into contact with), Calendula (used to help soothe inflamed tissues, reduce pain and aids in quick healing of cuts and abrasions), Sweet almond oil *Apricot oil is available for families with nut allergies*, Shea butter, Beeswax pastilles and Plantain oil (Astringent, antiseptic, and emollient) for 3 hours on low heat. Oils are strained through a cheese cloth and poured into a 4oz amber jar and refrigerated to solidify. Placenta salve is good for approximately one year.

Smoothie

Utilizing the placenta, raw, immediately after birth is becoming a popular and important step in a new mother's postpartum healing. Smoothies lend the mother immediate benefits of placenta consumption while waiting for her capsules. Taking raw placenta directly after birthing is a great alternative to pharmaceutical means of controlling bleeding. A thumbnail piece of raw placenta is added to a fruit smoothie and blended for the mother immediately after delivery of the placenta at the mother's birth place. Smoothie is blended with either a tropical blend {Coconut water base, aloe vera juice, mango, pineapple, peaches, banana, spinach, greek yogurt and chia seeds} or a berry blend {Orange juice base, aloe vera juice, greek yogurt, spinach, strawberries, raspberries, blue berries, banana and chia seeds}.

*Raw smoothies are only available to Mother's who tested negative (-) for GBS.

Print

Prior to encapsulation, a print is done with either the blood that is naturally on the placenta or food safe dyes on high-quality, acid-free watercolor card stock. Colors available: Black, Royal Blue, Sky Blue, Brown, Yellow, Teal, Green, Orange, Deep Pink, Super Red, Violet, and Fuchsia. You may choose a single color or up to 3. (2 colors for the placenta and 1 for the cord OR 2 colors randomly applied to the entire placenta/cord).
Tree of Life, Rainbow & Tracings are also available.
The print is coated with artist's sealant to protect the ink. Please note that colors remain on the cord and will be visible on the cord keepsake.

If you experience a loss of your baby, at any gestation, Placenta Prints and Cord Keepsakes are complimentary.

Steam-Start Method

Preparation using the Steam-Start Method involves heating the placenta with steam before dehydrating. Traditionally, this method is used to replenish warmth back to the mother that was lost in the birthing process and to rebalance the mother's Qi and energy. This method is commonly referred to as the Traditional Chinese Method but we are not doctors of Chinese Medicine. If you desire to work with a Doctor of Chinese Medicine and have a specialized blend of herbs prescribed for you we can use those herbs in the heated preparation.

As an added safety precaution, the Steam-Start method must be used for all Mothers who test positive for Group B streptococcus (GBS +).

Process:

  • The placenta is gently massaged to remove excess blood. Membranes and cord are removed. 
  • The placenta is steamed lightly with or without ginger and lemon. Lemon is thought of as an antiseptic and helps distribute the nutrients throughout the body. The ginger acts as a facilitator for energy and good blood flow.
  • After steaming and cooling the placenta is sliced into thin strips.
  • Strips are placed into the dehydrator.
  • The dehydrator is set at 160 degrees per safe food handling guidelines to kill any and all bacteria and runs for approximately 12 hours or until the strips are completely dehydrated and crisp.
  • Dehydrated strips are ground into a fine powder then put into size 0 capsules.
  • The capsules are transferred to an amber jar with a desiccant bag and sealed

 

Steam-Free method

The Steam-Free Method skips the initial steaming process. The Steam-Free method is popular as it is believed that steaming the placenta destroys some of the nutrients. Using the Steam-Free Method creates very nutrient and hormone dense capsules while producing a higher yield of capsules. The Steam-Free Method must be done within 24 hours of birthing.  

As an added safety precaution, Mothers who test positive for group B streptococcus (GBS +) are not eligible for the Steam-Free Method.

Process:

  • The placenta is massaged to remove excess blood. Membranes and cord are removed. The amniotic sac, rich in stem cells, is placed in the dehydrator.
  • The placenta is sliced into thin strips.
  • Strips are placed in the dehydrator.
    • The dehydrator is set at 160 degrees per safe food handling guidelines to kill any and all bacteria and runs for approximately 16 hours or until the strips are completely dehydrated and crisp.
  • Dehydrated strips are ground into a fine powder and then put into size 0 capsules.
  • The capsules are transferred to an amber jar with a desiccant bag and sealed.

 

 

DISCLAIMER

Placenta capsules are a nutritional supplement and there are no guarantees that it will prevent postpartum depression and we can't say they will produce a healthy milk supply. Placenta remedies are the best thing a new mother can give back to her body post birth but can not be used to reverse present or predisposed issues. Placenta capsules do not take place of medical care and should not be used to treat severe anemia, inadequate milk supply, postpartum depression or anxiety. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and further research and discussion with your health care provider are advised.
