Placenta Encapsulation Services
Your placenta is perfectly made for you, by you! It is an amazing organ created to nourish baby in the womb and then the mother postpartum. More and more families are choosing to take advantage of the healing properties of their baby’s placenta in the days and weeks following birth, minimizing recovery time and replenishing many of the vital nutrients that pregnancy and labour require.

Did you know there are 2 different methods to choose from when making placenta pills?
Traditional Chinese Medicine Placenta Preparation
✓ Requires that your placenta be heated over warming herbs to increase qi and promote the heating, tonifying quality that it brings to the body.
✓ Best for: moms who understand TCM or regularly use acupuncture
✓ Contraindicated when: moms have multiple signs of access heat in their body
Raw Placenta Preparation
✓ Requires that your placenta remain raw prior to dehydrating and no hormones or nutrients are lost.
✓ Best for: moms who want the full strength of their placenta or moms on a raw food diet
✓ Contraindicated when: moms have a history of depression or anxiety, or have signs of too much cold and damp in their bodies

PLACENTA PRINTS: $25
A beautiful way to honour birth and the role of the placenta is with artistic placenta prints. These are made on acid free paper with fresh placenta blood and are a wonderful reminder of the unique shape, size and contours of your placenta. Some clients use their prints as a background for a more detailed painting, while others frame them and hang them on the wall, or keep them as a keepsake.
PLACENTA TINCTURE: $40 for 100ml ready 6 weeks postpartum.
Placenta Tincture is made by reserving a small piece of the raw placenta before it is dehydrated and soaking it in food grade alcohol for 6 weeks. The result is a powerful medicine that is taken by putting drops of it on your tongue. It will store indefinitely and can be kept for use during menopause to help with hot flashes, mood swings and heart palpitations. It comes in a blue glass jar with dropper and will be ready for pick up from my house after 6 weeks. Delivery is available for an extra charge.
PLACENTA SALVE: $40 for 50g ready at the same time as the capsules.
I make my salve using organic olive oil, organic locally sourced beeswax and your dried placenta.. The resulting salve is creamy, smooth and bursting with healing properties. It’s great for diaper rash, eczema and other minor skin irritations.
PLACENTA SMOOTHIE: $45 if done in hospital while you wait. $25 if done in my home at the same time as the encapsulation.
I’ll prepare a smoothie for you using organic fruits of your choice and a small piece of raw placenta.
PLACENTA BROTH: free of charge
Placenta broth or 'Mothers Broth' is the liquid that your placenta was steamed over. Infused with ginger and myrrh it contains any of the nutrients that came out of the placenta during the steaming process. Placenta broth can be mixed in with soups or stews or even fruit juices or smoothies. Many clients attest to the burst of energy they experience after drinking this powerful liquid.
