Postpartum Offerings

”Giving…placenta to a new mother following birth has become standard protocol among a growing number of midwives in the United States. By nourishing the blood and fluids, endocrine glands and organs, Placenta will …reduce or stop postpartum bleeding, speed up recovery, boost energy and relieve postpartum blues.”

(Homes, Peter. 1993. Jade Remedies, Snow Lotus Press, 352.)

PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION

Typical yield is 80-150 capsules, depending on size of placenta. Vegetarian capsules are used, but vegan can be requested. While there is no flavor to the pills themselves, herbs are used during the process, includes lemon, ginger, and lavender. Secured in a new glass jar, the pills will be stored in the fridge. 

Full directions for usage will be discussed in person during our postpartum visit when I deliver pills. I require a phone consult prior to the signing of the contract to secure placenta service. 

Add on's:

*Choclate placenta truffles (yields about 6) $20.00

Postpartum Support Circle

 

A newly manifested offering, this support circle will be held weekly for the new mother. Come as you are, in this new phase of life, to be centered and grounded through a guided meditation that will lend way to an organic discussion about life as a new parent. Doula-led, we will allow for mother's to share what is happening in their transition from maiden to mother. Healthy snacks will always be served, and lap babies are welcome. Location and time TBD, please reach out for more details.

Placentophagy 

As a certified Placenta Specialist through Placenta Benefits Inc. I process placenta's using the Traditional Chinese Method. This is a process that is composed of cleaning, steaming, dehydrating, and then encapsulating the placenta. While herbs are used during this process, nothing comes into contact with the placenta. This process is offered either in your home, or my personal space. I will be on call for the placenta, and will pick up immediately after delivery, no matter the location of the birth, (previously discussed). Placenta pills are brought to you around 72 hours after birth, where we spend some time discussing directions for taking pills, and I offer any advice, or answer any postpartum questions you may have. I offer a phone consultation prior to contract signing so we can discuss the exact process as pertaining to you and your birth & needs.
