Placenta encapsulation services are available utilizing both the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) method and the raw method. In TCM the placenta is steamed with warming foods prior to dehydration. In the raw method the placenta is simply cleaned and dehydrated. Placenta preparation can be done in my facilities or in the clients’ own home. I am happy to discuss the benefits of different methods and locations of preparation with you to assist you in making the choice that suits you best.
With my background in research and years of experience working with blood and tissue, I pride myself on my ability to prepare your placenta with the highest health and safety standards. I re-certify annually with OSHA-approved Blood Borne Pathogen training and food safety and handling training. As your placenta preparer I will be on-call for your birth to pick up your placenta as soon as possible after your birth and will make every effort to return your placenta capsules to you within a maximum of 48 hours.
