Placenta Encapsulation

capsules4What Is Placenta Encapsulation?

It is a process whereby your placenta is prepared and neatly packaged into capsules to make ingestion easier.

A Better Birth offers the safest, most reliable placenta encapsulation service available.

You will have peace of mind knowing exactly where your placenta has been from delivery to encapsulation. Your placenta will be processed and encapsulated in the safety and comfort of your own home. The area of your kitchen which is used will be sanitized both before and after processing.

You or your family are welcome to be present during the process or not, as per your personal desires.

The early postpartum period can be a challenging time for adjustment.  Having a bit of support may help ease this transition. Our encapsulation service includes complimentary postpartum support as part of your encapsulation package. Your encapsulation specialist will answer questions regarding newborn care, share tips and tricks, assist with feeding questions- bottle or breast, help you locate local resources, among other services.

The cost for this service is $300. Please use our contact page to register today.

A Better Birth adheres to OSHA guidelines regarding blood-borne pathogens,  infection transmission, food safety handling, and sanitation.  You can rest easy knowing materials used to encapsulate are disposable or deeply and thoroughly sanitized between use.
