Placenta Encapsulation
Fee: $200 

Ingestion of the placenta is believed to have many benefits for mothers. The hormones, proteins, and vitamins in the placenta may help in reducing baby-blues, increasing milk supply and nutrient content, increasing energy levels, decreasing after- birth pains, decreasing lochia flow, and promote healing.

Encapsulation is the process where the placenta is steamed, dried, ground, and placed into capsules.  This allows for the placenta to be used over the course of the first few months after birth.
 Typical turn-a-round is 24-48 hours.
