Placental Encapsulation Services

Support for New Parents

I processed my first placenta in 2003 following the birth of my niece. I was amazed and moved by the experience—to be making medicine out of such a special organ. My sister felt that the capsules balanced and supported her throughout her postpartum time. From there, I was hooked.  

I process placentas in the Traditional Chinese Method. This two-day process includes; draining the placenta of blood and removing membranes, steaming at a low temp with slices of fresh lemon, ginger, and peppers in the water. Once steamed, the placenta is thinly sliced, dehydrated and ground for encapsulation.  “Raw Preparation” method is also available (skips steaming step), but this must be specified to me ahead of time. I use dedicated equipment and processing space with the upmost sterility and cleanliness as my first priority. I have completed OSHA training as well as midwifery-related training in the handling of blood products and sterile/medical technique.
