Placenta encapsulation is the process of preparing the mother’s placenta after the birth of her baby by steaming, dehydrating, powdering and placing it into capsules for the mother to ingest.
Benefits of Encapsulating Your Placenta:
Many people believe that the placenta has amazing abilities during the postpartum period; it has been said that it can heal, sustain, and strengthen.
Placenta Capsules have been used to help:
- Balance your hormones
- Enhance milk supply
- Increase your energy
Placenta Capsules may also help:
- You to recover more quickly from birth
- To bring the body back into balance
- Prevent the “baby blues”
- Shorten postpartum bleeding
- Assist the uterus to return to size
Your placenta is perfectly made for you, by you! It is an amazing organ created to nourish baby in the womb.
It is very important to note that each woman’s experiences of the benefits will vary and no particular benefit or experience can be guaranteed. Reported benefits are anecdotal in nature and not science based. Encapsulating your placenta is a very personal choice and one that is not right for everyone. Please do your own research to help ensure that this service is one that you feel is best for you!
Your placenta will be prepared for you using the steamed method. This method involves cleaning the placenta and draining any remaining blood, gently heating/steaming the placenta, slicing it into thin pieces, dehydrating and then grinding the placenta into a powder before placing it into vegan capsules.

I would highly recommend placenta encapsulation...
“Sarah was amazing to do business with, very professional and so easy to talk to, answering all my questions, and I did have a few! I would highly recommend placenta encapsulation as I feel great and even better knowing I am receiving the natural benefits of my placenta and all it has to offer my body!”

I fully attribute my increase in energy to the capsules...
“Having Sarah encapsulate my placenta was one of the best things I could have done for myself after giving birth. Sarah delivered my capsules to me two days after I gave birth and as soon as I started taking them I noticed a difference in my energy level. I fully attribute my increase in energy to the placenta capsules and within 3 days my husband and I were able to get out and about with our new baby! I would highly recommend encapsulating the placenta to anyone having a baby. Overall, a great experience that I will definitely repeat with baby number 2!”

I was able to spend more time cuddling & bonding...
"For the birth of my second child, I knew that I wanted to try anything and everything to achieve a more positive postpartum time, than I had with my first. After taking the capsules for just a couple weeks, I found that my physical recovery was quicker, my quality of sleep was better, and I experienced fewer "low" points than with my first, and all this while having a toddler underfoot! I was able to spend more time cuddling, bonding, and enjoying those early moments. Sarah was very easy to deal with, and so fast! My capsules were delivered to me the very day after I birthed! I know that my placenta was handled with extra care and I would recommend her service to anyone expecting a baby!”
