FAQs

Why should I consume my placenta?
During birth women lose 1/8-1/10 of their blood supply. The mammal placenta was made to be consumed and make up for this loss by giving the new mother essential fats, amino acids, vast amounts of iron and essential hormones to aid the body in self recovery after birth.

Will placenta capsules help with my breast milk supply?
Dried placenta has been proven to increase a breast-feeding mother's milk supply. The first and still one of the few ever studies on using placenta as a lactagogon gave incredible results. 181 out of 210 women who were given dried placenta to increase milk supply had positive results and saw an increase in their milk supply. Placenta as a Lactagogon; Gynaecologia 138: 617-627, 1954

I’m delivering in a hospital. Can I still have my placenta encapsulated?
Absolutely! When you sign up for the service, I will provide you with instructions to give to the hospital caregivers to make bringing the placenta home easy and stress free. 

When will I receive my capsules?
Your capsules will be delivered back to you within 24-48 hours after the placenta is received.

How many capsules can I expect from my placenta?
It all depends on the size of your placenta. I have seen anywhere from 75 – 150 capsules from various placentas.

What about sanitation?
I thoroughly disinfect the area where I work before, during, and after the process. All of the equipment is used solely for encapsulation and is thoroughly sanitized to ensure total safety everyone involved.

I delivered some time ago; my placenta is in the freezer. Is it too late to encapsulate?
Absolutely not. Although it is best to process the placenta within six months, all hormones and some nutrients are still viable and beneficial.
