What Are The Benefits Of Placenta Encapsulation?
It is believed that consuming the placenta can:
- Help to balance your hormones
- Replenish depleted iron levels
- Assist the uterus to return to its pre-pregnancy state
- Reduce post-natal bleeding
- Increase milk production – this has been proven in a study
- Make for a happier, more enjoyable post-natal period
- Increase your energy levels
- Baby blues can effect up to 80% of women within the first week of birth. Women who consume their placenta report fewer emotional issues and a more enjoyable babymoon. Who wouldn’t want that?!
Placentophagy is joked about, and labeled as cannibalism by many people, particularly in western cultures. But I will bet that those who joke about it don’t even realise that placentas have been used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) as long ago as in the 1500’s, which is longer than modern medicine has existed.
Placenta encapsulation is provided by an experienced and trained specialist who is Bloodborne Pathogen and Food Safety Handling (BC Public Health/Food Safe) certified.
Each placenta is dehydrated at 160 degrees, as per protocol and all implements fully sanitized before and after each placenta is processed.
Raw prep method (more potent) involves dehydrating your placenta from its raw state and usually produces more capsules (200 – 250 depending on the size of the placenta). The traditional Chinese medicine method is not offered at this time.

Experience with Placenta Encapsulation
“I have struggled with depression off and on in my life. Through years of counseling I was able to conquer it, yet I was really worried about having post partum after having my baby. I heard those hormones could be intense.
I was right to worry. Two days after giving birth my hormones made me feel crazy. I have never felt so sad in my whole life.
I actually told my husband that he and our baby would be better off with out me in the picture and there was no point in living. I told my doula how I was feeling and she rushed me my pills. Within a day of taking them the sadness started to lift. I started getting more energy after a week and I know it helped me heal faster.
Now looking back I am horrified that I even thought those thoughts. I love my boy so much he makes my life better in every way. I could not have gone though this process of motherhood without my doula and with out my placenta pills. If your thinking of having a baby get a doula and get your placenta pills! They are lifesavers!

I received my placenta encapsulated pills from Rachel after my second child was born. What a difference! I like to call it “the two week fog” -forgetfulness, scatter brain, emotional outbursts, tears, etc. All of these things I experienced with my sons birth, however with my daughters birth (with placenta pills) it has been an absolutely seamless emotional transition. It will be a very sad day when I take my last pill! Rachel was especially wonderful to work with and made the process SO EASY! I would highly recommend any of her services, especially the placenta encapsulation! She is a wealth of knowledge and an amazing consultant for any baby/mama needs.
