Placenta Encapsulation

The placenta is an absolutely incredible organ that supports the life of your unborn baby whilst growing within your womb. Its role doesn't have to end once your baby is born, as the placenta is rich in many nutrients like iron, vitamins, minerals, stem cells, growth factors and hormones, and people find that when they consume their own placenta after birth, it contributes to a gentler and easier postpartum recovery. 

My placenta encapsulation service is a simple and modern way for new parents to receive the benefits of consuming their placenta by using a professional and safe technique to process their own placenta into capsules within days of their birth. I am delighted to be able to offer this service along with a selection of other  placenta preparation methods. 

I have trained with Independent Placenta Encapsulation Network (IPEN). I also hold certificates in Food Hygiene, Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) and Infection Control. 

I only process one placenta at a time so that there is no risk of cross contamination. 

Benefits of Placenta Encapsulation After Birth

People who consume their placentas after birth have reported:
  • enhanced milk supply
  • increased energy levels
  • reduced incidence of "baby blues"
  • reduced incidence of post-natal depression
  • reduced postpartum bleeding
  • quicker recovery from birth

The placenta is then dehydrated, ground and put into vegan-friendly capsules.
