Placenta Encapsulation

The human placenta is rich in vitamins, minerals and hormones that may enhance recovery from birth through nourishing the blood and reducing the possible onset of postpartum depression. Further benefits include enhancing breast milk-production, overall energy and quality of sleep - all of which are crucial to a new parent’s ability to cope with the many demands of a newborn.

The use of placenta as medicine has been long practiced instinctively by almost all mammals as well as traditional native american and chinese cultures who regard this organ as sacred given it’s powerful, life-giving purpose.​


​I will pick up your placenta from your home or hospital ideally within 24 hours of your birth.  I follow the traditional chinese method of steaming it with warming herbs, dehydrating and grinding it into powder that I encapsulate in vegetarian capsules for you to take as and when you need. ​
