Placenta Preparation

Placenta Encapsulation is the process in which after childbirth, the placenta is steamed, dehydrated, and ground into a fine powder that is placed into capsules for consumption. The capsules look and feel like taking a vitamin. Many women have experienced Placenta Encapsulation as a great way to help with the postpartum transition and hormone changes, in a way that's healthy and palatable*.
