There are many potential benefits for consuming your placenta postpartum. Potential benefits include:
* Reduce/Prevent baby blues/postpartum depression
* Increase lactation
* Increase healing time
* Restoration of iron levels
Currently, I am offering in-your-home encapsulation services only. Upon agreement, I can either pick up your placenta from your place of birth, or meet you, a family member, or friend at your home to begin the encapsulation process. The process takes two visits over a two day period with each visit lasting approximately 1.5 hours. I will clean, steam, and dehydrate the placenta on day one, then return on day 2 to grind and encapsulate the placenta. You will also receive complete dosing instructions and a keepsake umbilical cord memento (when possible).
The cost for placenta encapsulation within a 15 mile radius of Germantown, WI is $200. Additional costs will be determined depending on your location and needs.
I received certificate training through Placenta Benefits, Inc. in 2011. I have also received OSHA bloodborne pathogen training and have a food handlers' card, which provided additional instruction on safe handling of your placenta and avoiding any risk of cross contamination.
