Placenta Encapsulation

Please let me know in advance if this is a service you are seeking. I ask for payment ($200) in advance for placenta encapsulated pills. 
Add-ons could include:
- Tincture ($40)
- Tree of Life print ($30)
- Cord Keepsake ($10)

•Many people who consume their placenta anecdotally report feeling more balanced and having more energy and less sadness than after prior pregnancies where they did not consume their placentas. 

•While the studies are poor defining exactly which hormones are involved with perinatal mood disorders, placenta contains a number of hormones (and other nutrients) that may play a role. 

•Lactating people that choose to take placenta pills report that they feel more confident that they have enough milk for their baby. Some report that their milk came in more quickly than expected as well. 

If you have any questions feel free to reach out or do some research on your own!

- Tinctures are a wonderful way to extend the benefits of the placenta beyond the few weeks of taking pills. If stored properly, tinctures can last a lifetime!

- Tree of Life prints are a fun way to see the design of the veins that kept your baby growing!

- Cord keepsakes can be a knot, initials, or even made into a simple design of your choice. 



AUSTIN AREA HOSPITAL INFORMATION

  • Seton Hospitals: Inform your doctor and nurse while in labor that you plan to keep your placenta for encapsulating purposes. There is generally a 72-hour hold. Let us know during daytime hours as soon as the baby is born by calling or texting 469-233-4384. Once the placenta is released from pathology, I will coordinate pick up. 

  • St. David's Hospitals:  Take a small cooler with you to the hospital.  Lunch size coolers will work fine for this.  Inform your doctor and nurse while in labor that you plan to keep your placenta for encapsulating purposes.  Your placenta will be released immediately after delivery.  Please let me know as soon as you deliver (or even better, when you are in labor), so that we can make arrangements for pick up by calling or texting 469-233-4384.  I pick up placentas during day time hours. The placenta will be fine bagged up surrounded by bags of ice in the cooler until we get there, but if possible, keep in a fridge below 40 degrees. 

  • Baylor, Scott & White Hospitals: Take a small cooler with you.  Inform your doctor and nurse while in labor that you plan to keep your placenta for encapsulating purposes.  Your placenta should be released immediately after delivery.  Please let me know as soon as you deliver (or even better, when you are in labor) so that I can make arrangements for pick up.  Again, call or text me at 469-233-4384 to let me know it's ready.  I will pick it up during day time hours. The placenta will be fine bagged up surrounded by bags of ice in the cooler until we get there, but if possible, keep in a fridge below 40 degrees.
