During pregnancy, the Placenta takes care of your baby, delivering nutrients, removing waste and keeping your baby safe from infections. After birth the placenta can continue to help both mother and baby in many ways. Placenta Encapsulation
is one of those ways.

Some of the benefits when taking encapsulated placenta are:


Balance your hormones, Increase milk supply, Combat Fatigue, Increase your energy, Recover more quickly from childbirth, Replenish what was lost during childbirth, Bring the body back into balance, Easy the “baby blues” and Shorten postnatal bleeding time.


Studies show that placenta is extremely nutrient rich, high in iron, protein, vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B6 and of course, your own natural hormones, making it perfectly made for you, by you. Experts agree that the placenta retains hormones, and thus reintroducing them to your system may ease hormonal fluctuations. 

Traditional Chinese Medicine has used placenta to augment the Chi (energy), nourish the blood, and augment the kidney essence. In layman’s terms, it brings the body back into balance, replenishing what was lost during childbirth. In many cultures the placenta is considered the tree of life, and indeed, without it life would not be possible. Hormones present in the placenta:

• Prolactin: promotes lactation
• Oxytocin: for pain and bonding; also known as the “love” hormone
• Interferon: stimulates the immune system to protect against infection
• Thyroid Stimulating Hormone: boosts energy and helps recover from stressful events
• Cortisone: combats stress and unlocks stores of energy
Hemoglobin: replenishes iron deficiency and anemia
• Gammaglobulin: immune booster that helps protect against postpartum infections
• Urokinase Inhibiting Factor & Factor XIII: stops bleeding and enhances wound healing

Placenta Encapsulation

The placenta transports nutrients to the fetus during gestation, as well as producing and regulating hormones and opioids. Ingesting the placenta has numerous benefits and can be done in different ways. Encapsulation (a technique of processing the placenta, grinding it into a powder and putting it in capsules) enables you to enjoy those benefits completely and easily. Each placenta's hormonal and mineral make up is completely unique to the mother and no supplement or vitamin can compare to the unique value that this provides the mother in her recovery from childbirth, and the child via the breast milk.

​It is very important to understand when it is appropriate for a mother to ingest the placenta after birth.  There are several factors that can interfere with the benefits that it provides, including what medications the mother has received during pregnancy, labor and delivery.  My IPPA Placenta Preparation training enables me to discern all necessary factors involved in the processing of the placenta for the safety and well being of the mother.
