Ok so here goes I have decided to offer Placenta Encapsulation as a service available to my clients. I have done a lot of research on the matter and truly it's benefits outweigh the "ick factor". I know most people would find it absolutely appalling to think about ingesting their Placenta but really it isn't that uncommon.
So here is they why and the how :0)
Why Placenta Encapsulation?
Placenta pills may help to:
• Increase general energy
• Allow a quicker return to health after birth
• Increase production of breast milk
• Decrease likelihood of baby blues and post natal depression
• Decrease likelihood of iron deficiency
• Decrease likelihood of insomnia or sleep disorders
Services I offer
Placenta Encapsulation - TCM
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has historically honored placenta medicine to remedy milk supply issues and to balance Qi (life energy) after a woman's birth. The TCM method dates back many thousands of years and involves steaming the placenta with a unique mix of herbs and foods designed to help the placenta be absorbed deeper into the system and to enhance its healing properties. We will discuss your birth and choose the additional agents together. $150.00
Placenta Encapsulation - RAW
In this method it is believed that the hormones found in overwhelming supply in the placenta at birth are most readily usable by the body post-partum if the placenta is processed without being subjected to cooking or high heat. Although no scientific studies can prove or disprove this assumption it follows with raw food medicine that cooking degrades some or all of the most beneficial qualities of food.
Raw encapsulation is not available if there is suspicion of infection (maternal or fetal) or if meconium if present in the amniotic fluid.
Or a mixture of Raw and TCM method 150.00
I will come to the place of birth and pick up the placenta, keeping it on ice transport it to my home where I will prepare the placenta and return the completed pills to you within 2 days of receiving the placenta. Please contact me for more info.
please add 50.00 travel expense if out of the downtown core.
