Placenta encapsulation is the process of preparing and dehydrating the placenta after birth. It is then ground up into a powder and placed into pills for the mother to take during the postpartum period.
Placentophagy (consuming the placenta) is a common practice in mammals and has been more recently been revived in the US. For more research regarding placentophagy and FAQ please visit PlacentaWise.
As well as encapsulation, these other placenta services are offered:
- Placenta tinctures
- Smoothies/smoothie cubes
