placenta encapsulation Services

The process of placenta encapsulation includes cleaning, steaming, dehydrating, grinding, and placing placenta powder into capsules. I follow OSHA standards and Blood Borne Pathogen protocols throughout the placenta encapsulation process. Also, I only process one placenta at a time, and the space is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized between clients according to BBP and OSHA standards. 

I follow the Traditional Method of placenta encapsulation which includes steaming & dehydrating the placenta. The dehydrated placenta is then ground into powder which is then encapsulated.

How does Placenta Encapsulation work?

Families book encapsulation services by paying a $50 downpayment during pregnancy & signing a contract online. When the family gives birth to their sweet baby and placenta, they contact me and I will come to pick up the placenta at their birthplace. Prior to picking up, the family pays their remaining placenta encapsulation fee. After I finish processing the placenta capsules, I drop them off 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.
