Placenta Encapsulation is the basic service of preparing the placenta to be ingested in capsule form. The placenta is gently rinsed and drained, then steamed to food safe temperatures. After steaming, the placenta is thinly sliced then fully dehydrated. It is ground and put into capsules. Women who encapsulate and consume their placentas often report boosts in energy, feelings of wellness and balanced moods, quick and smooth postpartum recoveries, and sometimes a boost milk supply. Raw preparation is available as well!
**$25 delivery fee for those outside of Kent County.

Placenta Art Keepsake
Standard prints are made with your fresh placenta and the natural blood onto heavy watercolor paper. It’s a wonderful way to commemorate your placenta’s beauty. If the mother wishes, color prints can be done with a plastic barrier and food-safe dye (like a baker’s dye). A print can be a great addition to a baby book or nursery, with advanced notice for color preparation, prints can be done to match the child’s nursery. Contact me and we’ll discuss it!
