Placenta encapsulation has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. There are many benefits to placenta encapsulation. Your placenta contains your own natural hormones. When encapsulated and taken during the postpartum period it helps to balance your hormones, replenish lost iron, lessen postpartum bleeding,  increase energy levels, increase breast milk supply, hasten the return of your uterus to its pre-pregnancy state, and help decrease postpartum depression. It also can be used to lessen PMS symptoms once your cycle returns, and has also been shown to be effective in reducing menopausal symptoms. This is a service we provide regardless of where a woman is planning to deliver. The fee is $175, with a $25 discount for midwifery clients.
