Placenta encapsulation is the art and science of preserving the placenta’s restorative power for daily usage over an extended period of time.
For centuries, utilizing the healing and restorative power of the placenta has been a common occurrence in Traditional Chinese Medicine, but western medicine is not nearly as open minded, nor has it caught up with the mind, body, spirit connection found in eastern medicine.
Through the process of placenta encapsulation for the purpose of ingestion, birthing individuals are benefiting from the powerful organ that is responsible for the nourishment and oxygenation of their baby in utero. The placenta, which is the only organ the body grows for a single purpose and then expels when the job is complete, has powerful healing properties. As the organ responsible for pregnancy hormones, it’s exit from the body disrupts the hormonal balance. Re-adjusting, or re-balancing those hormones takes approximately 6 weeks.

While little research on placenta encapsulation has yielded few results, the clients of Brave Beautiful Beginnings who bravely hire this service in order to consume their placentas, have shared the following bits of anecdotal evidence with us:
“I had more energy during the postpartum period with this baby because I did placenta encapsulation.”
“I had far less postpartum bleeding this time.”
“I definitely saw an increase in my milk supply from taking the capsules.”
“I just felt happier this time than last. The only difference was my placenta!”
“I did it because I had severe postpartum depression with my first baby. An article I read said that women who consume their placentas are less likely to experience that. I would have done anything not to feel that way. Placenta encapsulation worked miracles for me. I’m so grateful for this service.”
