Placenta Encapsulation Description
Placenta encapsulation is the process of preparing the mother’s placenta after the birth of her baby by dehydrating, powdering and placing it into capsules for the mother to ingest. The purpose of ingestion of the placenta is to reintroduce beneficial vitamins, minerals, hormones, proteins, and other nutrients to her body following birth to help restore physical and emotional balance, prevent or lessen the risk of “baby blues” and postpartum depression, increase breast-milk production, shorten healing time, increase maternal energy levels, and provide an over-all feeling of wellness to aid in the transition between pregnancy and the early postpartum period.

Your placenta will be prepared following the Traditional Chinese Medicine method. This includes conscious handling of the placenta, careful drainage of the blood vessels, gentle steaming with warming herbs and dehydration. Once in powder form your placenta will be encapsulated and you will be provided with guidelines for dosage and care.

Limitations and Disclaimer
I am not a licensed medical professional and I am not able to diagnose, treat or prescribe for any health condition. Services and fees are for the preparation and encapsulation of your placenta, not for the sale of the pills. No specific benefits or effects are promised. Any benefits will vary from person to person. Some of the ascribed benefits of placenta consumption are supported by ongoing research; however these benefits have not been evaluated or approved by Health Canada. It is your responsibility to determine whether using placenta preparations may be of benefit to you.
Please initial to indicate that you have read and understood these limitations.

Client Responsibility
It is your responsibility to notify me as soon after the birth as possible to make arrangements for pick up, drop off. Failure to do so may result in delayed placenta preparation and encapsulation and may cause decreased potency of nutrients, hormones, and other beneficial attributes of the placenta, and even spoilage of the placenta which would render it unusable for encapsulation.

It is your responsibility to discuss release of your placenta from the hospital where you give birth and to ensure proper storage of your placenta in a refrigerator or cooler with the placenta placed on ice until it can be picked up or delivered for preparation and encapsulation. Please contact me if you need assistance with this.

It is also your responsibility to inform me of any known blood-borne illness(es) or other health issues (such as HIV, hepatitis, etc.) that could place me or any others who may come in contact with bodily fluids (specifically maternal and fetal blood and amniotic fluid) at risk.

Packaging and Transport
Your placenta should be placed in a food grade container or sealed bag and either refrigerated or placed on ice within the first 3 hours after birth.

For Hospital Births: I recommend never letting your placenta leave your sight to minimize the chances of it accidentally being discarded. Bring a small cooler and 2 large zip lock bags with you to the hospital so you can keep your placenta in your room. Within the first few hours after birth, fill the cooler with ice and place the sealed placenta inside. It will keep until I can pick it up or until you take it home and put it in the refrigerator (whichever comes first.) If you forget a cooler take the plastic tub in your room and fill it with ice to place the packaged placenta on ice.

For Home Births: You can store your placenta in any food grade container that can be sealed or a large zip lock bag. Refrigerate or place your placenta on ice within the first 3 hours after the birth.

If you are practicing some form of lotus birth, ice packs may be wrapped up with the placenta to prevent spoilage. If it is going to be more than 3 or 4 days before the placenta can be prepared, it should be frozen. A frozen placenta will take somewhat longer to prepare since I prefer to gently defrost it prior to preparation.

It is important to note that there may be circumstances under which your placenta cannot be used. Significant abnormalities of the placenta may necessitate your doctor or midwife sending your placenta to Pathology for further examination. Other conditions, such as signs of infection in the mother during birth, may mean that consuming your placenta will not be beneficial to you. If in doubt I will consult with you before proceeding. It should be possible to claim your placenta after a caesarean birth.
