I offer the Raw Dehydration Method. Please read the FAQ page for more information. The purpose of the mother ingesting encapsulated placenta is to reintroduce the beneficial vitamins, minerals, hormones, proteins, and other nutrients to her body following labor and birth which may help restore a more balanced body function, assist in the prevention of “baby blues” and the more serious postpartum depression, increase breast-milk production and quality, shorten healing time, increase maternal energy levels, and provide an over-all feeling of wellness. I use only the highest quality vegetarian capsules made from 100% vegetable derived source HPMC (Hidroxy, Propyl, Methyl, Cellulose), free of starch, sugar, corn, syrup, wheat, dairy, and other potential irritants or preservatives. The v-caps I use for the encapsulation process are Kosher & Halal certified.
Some families wish to commemorate their child's birth with a keepsake art print of the placenta. Please let me know if you are interested in having prints made with your placenta so that I can accommodate your wishes. I offer prints on archival-quality artist's paper, canvas boards and stretched canvas. I do not use pigments or inks for the art prints unless you are only having prints made, and not having your placenta encapsulated or otherwise ingested.
You may opt to have a tincture made with your placenta in the course of the encapsulation preparation or in lieu of encapsulation. Some mothers do choose to bury the placenta and reserve only a small piece for tincture. Tinctures rest for six weeks after the birth and can be used on their own in times of transition, stress and illness or in conjunction with your capsules. A small portion of the Placenta Tincture can be used to create Placenta Essence and Homeopathic Placenta Remedy if the parents so decide. If you decide you want a tincture made after the placenta has been encapsulated, an alternative tincture can be made using a small portion of your capsules, about 1-2 per ounce. Detailed instructions are provided for use of tinctures.
