What do you know about the benefits of
“In my experience, I attribute my post natal health in part to the encapsulated placenta. I started taking the capsules a few days after birth and found even after a haemorrhage during birth my iron levels stayed high, my milk came in quickly and plentifully and my spirits remained high even with having to stay in the children’s ward with Nate for the first week of his life. Four months on no postnatal depression and didn’t experience very low swings at all with the ‘baby blues’.
I really appreciated the pick up/drop off service as those early days were really crazy and it made the whole process possible. The warning on the jar about infections was also very helpful as I may not have remembered that if told verbally and getting mastitis I did have to stop taking them for a while”. – Michelle
If you are in the Central Victoria region Placenta Encapsulation is a service that prepares your placenta using Traditional Chinese Medicine methods into capsule and/or tincture form so that you can enjoy the benefits of ingesting this powerful nourishment without the squeamishness.
Your placenta will be picked up within hours of birth if fresh, or within 24 hours if refrigerated.
The capsules will be delivered within three days of receiving the placenta and the tincture will be posted back within 6-8 weeks.
According to Chinese Medicine this is sacred medicine, full of life force, and your placenta will always be handled with reverence.
If you’re having a hospital birth, ensure the hospital is aware you want to keep the placenta (don’t worry, it’s a pretty normal request these days). And whilst you are having the placenta conversation, consider choosing a natural third stage and requesting the delayed clamping and cutting of your baby’s umbilical cord so that your baby may receive the full benefits of this placental blood. If you are planning a lotus birth (leaving the umbilical cord uncut until it falls away) you may still be able to enjoy the Placenta Encapsulation service once the cord separates naturally.
