placenta encapsulation Services

The placenta encapsulation process involves several steps, including cleaning, steaming, dehydrating, grinding, and encapsulating the placenta powder into capsules. I adhere strictly to OSHA standards and Blood Borne Pathogen protocols throughout every stage of the placenta encapsulation process. I maintain the highest standards of hygiene by processing only one placenta at a time, and meticulously cleaning and sanitizing the workspace between clients, in accordance with OSHA Blood Borne Pathogens training.

I practice the Traditional Method of placenta encapsulation, which encompasses steaming and dehydrating the placenta. Following dehydration, the placenta is ground into a fine powder before being encapsulated for consumption.

Families may also order placenta tinctures, placenta prints, or placenta salves for an additional fee. 

How does Booking Placenta Encapsulation work?

To book encapsulation services, families pay a $50 deposit during pregnancy and sign an online contract. Once the baby is born and the placenta is ready, the family contacts me, and I collect the placenta from their chosen location. Before picking up the placenta, the family settles the remaining placenta encapsulation fee. Once I’ve processed the placenta capsules, I deliver them to the family. 

What are the Possible benefits of placenta encapsulation?

Postpartum Support

Are you looking for ways to have a faster postpartum recovery? Taking encapsulated placenta pills may potentially prevent feelings of postpartum fatigue by increasing your daily iron intake. Encapsulated placenta pills contain 24% of your recommended daily amount of iron [Gryder]

Increased Milk Supply

Taking Encapsulated Placenta pills can potentially increase your milk supply!

A study in 1918 found that weight gain in infants breast-fed exclusively by mothers having ingested desiccated placenta was faster than in the control group where placenta was not consumed [Hammet]. This same study found that after mothers ingested the placenta, the amount of protein and lactose in their breastmilk increased.

Improved mood in Postpartum

Taking encapsulated placenta pills could be a way of potentially boosting your mood during the trying transition of postpartum.
A 2013 study found that women who ingested their placenta felt that they had improved postnatal mood, more energy, increased milk production, reduced bleeding, and faster recovery [Selander] 

Contraindications for encapsulation

The following are some reasons why encapsulation would not be recommended:
– Active infection in the mother or baby during labor or immediately postpartum (GBS colonization is NOT contraindicated )
– Chorioamnionitis
– Smoking during pregnancy
– If the placenta goes to pathology (If your provider decides your placenta should go to pathology, you can ask them to only take a small piece from the placenta so that you can retain the rest for processing.)
– Cancer of the placenta

Becoming a Placenta Arts Specialist Through APPA

As of December 2021, I am training with The Association of Placenta Preparation Arts as a future Placenta Encapsulation Specialist.  I am very much looking forward to being able to provide this service to my doula families and Oklahoman families. 

Below is a copy of my Blood Borne Pathogens Training certificate that I earned from the Association of Placenta Preparation Arts in February of 2022. This BBP training meets and exceeds OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1030 requirements so that I am knowledgeable on how to safely prepare my client’s placenta for encapsulation.
