How does placenta encapsulation help a postpartum person?

A birthing person’s life after childbirth is an amazing and unique time period, full of changes and challenges. Placenta Encapsulation can provide an extra boost for the birthing parent after childbirth, improving their overall post-birth experience as they adjust to life with a new baby. It is an honor to work with new families and provide them access to this precious support to aid in their healing and recovery.

The Placenta is composed of beneficial hormones, chemicals, iron and proteins. Some of these healing properties are:

  • PROLACTIN promotes lactation.
  • OXYTOCIN for pain and bonding; produced during breastfeeding to promote
    bonding of mother and infant.
  • CORTISONE combats stress and unlocks energy stores.
  • INTERFERON stimulates the immune system to help prevent infection.
  • HEMOGLOBIN Replenishes iron deficiency and anemia, a common postpartum condition.

All placenta encapsulation services include pick up from your birthing location, professional preparation, and delivery. Complimentary print and cord keepsake available upon request.

What is Tincture?

By tincturing a small piece of placenta in high-grade alcohol, you can prolong the benefits of your placenta hormones. The tincture can be used in any time of trauma, transition, emotional distress or hormone changes to ease your symptoms. The tincture is allowed to sit for at least 6 weeks before use. It is shelf stable and if kept in a cool, dark place will last for many, many years. You can add the tincture to your placenta encapsulation service for an additional fee.

Additional add ons:

Placenta smoothies

Placenta truffles

What is the Salve?

Your own superfine placenta powder is infused into a high quality salve base, with or without your choice of essential oils. We use a luxurious organic base as our carrier because it is non-sensitizing, good smelling, food based, and can penetrate deep under the surface of the skin. Placenta salve can be used for: Cesarean scars, perineal tears (wait until stitches dissolve), diaper rash, and as a general healing and skin-care salve. You can add the salve to your placenta encapsulation service for an additional fee.


I’m so glad I decided to have Ashley encapsulate my placenta. I was sceptical on how the pills would work, but I’m so happy I have them. She got them to me so quick and I can’t believe how different this postpartum experience has been so far compared to my last. I feel much more emotionally level (i had postpartum ocd after my son) and at 8 days post baby almost no bleeding. I truly feel the pills are to thank!

Ashley performed my placenta encapsulation after birth for me. I am so glad I decided to have this done, these pills are wonderful. I have energy, I feel healthy and my recovery from delivery is going great! My milk supply came in quickly, and I also haven’t experienced any postpartum depression. I would definitely recommend this looking into this service for any new moms to be! Thank you Ashley!
