What to expect...
Placenta encapsulation is the process of steaming, dehydrating and grinding a placenta and putting it into capsules as medicine for the mother after the birth. Your placenta is believed to contain naturally occurring hormones to support your bodily system in finding balance as your body recovers from pregnancy and birth. Brooke follows the TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) method of preserving your placenta for encapsulation. With this approach, she steams the placenta with warming herbs in order to bring heat back into the body to replace heat lost during childbirth before dehydrating, grinding and encapsulating into pill form for consumption in the fourth trimester. The pills are shelf stable and come with simple and complete instructions for storage and consumption.
Childbirth is a very sensitive and vulnerable time for families so we make sure to keep this process as simple as possible. In fact, you never even have to touch the placenta! Upon request, the hospital will package it up for safe transport. Brooke works with each family to create a placenta transportation plan from the hospital or birthing place right to your home (to limit potential outside contamination) where it will be processed and left for you without any extra hullabaloo. Brooke is our trained placenta encapsulation specialist who is currently furthering her education through the Association of Placenta Prepration Arts (APPA). She brings all of her own equipment and thoroughly cleans your kitchen before, during, and after processing. All The process takes part in two short shifts over two days. On the first day, the placenta will be steamed and processed into the dehydrator which generally takes about two hours. The drying process takes 12 hours. On the second day, the dried placenta is ground and put into capsules which takes about an hour. The jar will be labeled and left in your refrigerator! There will be no trace of the process, and you will have a supplement made from your own hormones and nutrients, specific to your body. She will take extreme care not only with your placenta, but also your home and space as you transition back from the birthing place, and will help to create an atmosphere of support as you bond as a new family.
