Metta Birth Services is excited to now offer placenta encapsulation! I have been certified by the Red Cross and the Health Department in Blood Borne Pathogens and Food Safety and Sanitation and maintain the utmost levels of care and cleanliness in preparing your placenta for tincture or encapsulation. Below are my basic services, but accommodations can be made on an individual basis. Contact me for more details.
What is placenta encapsulation?
Placenta encapsulation is the process by which a placenta (the afterbirth) is dehydrated and ground into a fine powder. This powder is put into capsules, much like a vitamin, and is then ingested by the mother. Ingesting the placenta (placentophagy) reintroduces important nutrients and hormones that are lost during birth and the post-partum period. For more information about placentophagy and placenta encapsulation, please see the links below.
Placenta Encapsulation ($200) includes: Prepared placenta capsules, placenta print on card stock, and an umbilical cord keepsake.
Placenta Tincture ($25) may be added on to an encapsulation and includes a 2 oz. bottle of placenta tincture.
Additional Placentas ($25) for each additional placenta per birth.
Client Home preparation ($50) for clients who wish to have the encapsulation process done in their own home. Some limitations may apply, please contact me for details.
Discount ($25) for clients from Metta Birth Services classes.
