Your placenta's cord can be made into a heart keepsake when you have your placenta encapsulated. It comes in a small decorative bag and can be saved with other mementos from your baby. This can only be done if the cord is saved and intact.
Using a small amount of your placenta powder, I can make you some chocolates. They are a great tasting way to get some of your hormones back in your system.
I can prepare a fresh fruit and placenta smoothie for you to consume after birth. Some of the benefits of the smoothie are that it helps stop post-partum bleeding and encourages the body to quickly heal internal wounds. It gives the body an immediate supply of essential vitamins and nutrients, which gives moms a feeling of strength. If you would like to make your own, I can share some great recipes and prepare pieces of the placenta to be used in the smoothie for free when you order encapsulation.
Placenta Tincture is made from a piece of the mother’s own raw placenta after birth, steeping in alcohol making a strong remedy over 6 weeks. It is said that placenta tincture is used for emotional, mental and psychological instability and may also be very beneficial for treating PMS and menopause. This is a great way to reap the benefits of the placenta for years after your capsules are all gone! Keep the placenta in cool, dark place and it should keep indefinitely.
Placentas have been known to have healing and restorative qualities for the skin. Several expensive anti-aging lotions and creams contain sheep placenta extract in them. I can create a natural and healing salve using some of your own placenta. Placenta salve can be used on cesarian scars, perineal tears, diaper rash,general healing and skin care.
I will pick up the placenta at your place of birth, process it at my home and have it returned within 12 – 24 hours. You choose if you would like me to process your placenta with the traditional Chinese method, steamed but nothing added to the water, or if you would prefer the raw method. The traditional Chinese method consists of thoroughly rinsing, steaming with ginger, lemon, and cayenne pepper, then dehydrating the placenta. The placenta is then ground into a powder and encapsulated. The most common choice of mothers is to have the placenta steamed only and then dehydrated. This method still steams your placenta, but without any additives just in case they didn’t work for you well. We only get one shot with this placenta so this method is PURE YOU and nothing else. This is opted for most often. Mothers will add warming teas to their diet if they want to correct any imbalances.
The raw method skips the steaming step. To hold your spot, you may choose to pay the non-refundable deposit of $50, and pay the remaining balance later (see below).

I know some new moms are on a tight budget but still want to reap the benefits of placenta encapsulation. To help you save on cost, you have the option to provide the drop off and pick up of your placenta to my home in Lehi for a discounted price. I still recommend that you have me do the pick up and drop off. You and your spouse will be very busy during the first few days after your new baby’s birth. New parents really appreciate the convenience of me providing the pick up and drop off while they are still in the hospital.
