Whats the process of placenta Encapsulation

I’m sure you know all the great benefits of placenta encapsulation, like increased milk supply, mood stability, and increased energy. So I’ll go ahead and explain the process. Once you decide you would like to move forward, and I have received your intake form that Ill attach below (and encapsulation deposit of $50), you will want to mention to your care provider that you will be taking your placenta home. I have not worked with the hospital you mentioned before, but all hospitals have a policy around this. Each is different, so you will want to find out yours. You will probably want to know how soon after the birth you will be able to take it (some hsp don’t allow you to have the placenta until you are discharged in case they need to send it to the lab). Also ask if they will store the placenta for you until you can have someone pick it up, or if you need to bring a cooler when you go into labor. The main reason I wouldn’t be able to complete the encapsulation for you would be if they had to send the placenta to the lab/pathology.
I work hard to have your capsules back to you in about 24 hours, so you can experience the benefits right away. My process of working with the actual placenta is easy. I simply cut the placenta into small pieces, place on my dehydrator until all moisture is removed, grind into powder and then put into capsules so you can take them like vitamins every morning. Each placenta will make anywhere from 80 to 160 capsules. I average at around 120. I dry the placenta until there’s absolutely no moisture remaining, so the capsules are shelf-stable. If you want to keep them for years I would suggest that you store them in your freezer.

  1. How do you ensure there is no harmful bacteria in the placenta ? Does the dehydration process kill all bad bacteria ?

    1. Great question! The dehydration process does greatly reduce the number of bacteria in the placenta, I actually dehydrate at 160 degrees, to ensure that GBS and other bacteria are killed.
