Placenta Encapsulation

Placenta Encapsulation


Placenta encapsulation is the practice of ingesting the placenta after it has been steamed, dehydrated, ground, and placed into pills. Traditionally, this is taken by the mother and is believed to impart numerous health benefits.



The Placenta Encapsulation Specialists at Scenic City Birth Collective provide the highest standards of care. Requirements set forth by the World Health Organization (WHO), The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and ccupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) are upheld ensuring the professionalism and trust in this service.

What Can I Expect?


The Placenta Encapsulation Specialist will either come to your home to complete your placenta service or will take your placenta to her own home. Once done, your capsules, care instructions, and suggested usage information will be ready and waiting for you.

Benefits of Encapsulating Your Placenta


The possible benefits include of placenta encapsulation include:

  • Increased release of the hormone oxytocin, which helps the uterus return to normal size and encourages bonding with the infant

  • Increase in CRH, a stress-reducing hormone

  • Decrease in post-partum depression levels

  • Restoration of iron levels in the blood

Women report a boost in breast milk production, increased mood and energy levels, a smoother hormonal adjustment and an improved overall postpartum recovery.

When to Contact a Placenta Specialist


Contact a Specialist during your pregnancy so that you can learn more about the process and ensure her availability. Upon hiring a Placenta Specialist to encapsulate your placenta, you will be given placenta supplies for transport and for safe keeping. After the birth, proper refrigeration of your placenta during storage and transportation are absolutely crucial.  The encapsulation process should begin within 72 hours of the birth.
