placenta services...

 

TCMi Encapsulation: This method of preparing the placenta for encapsulation involves gently steaming the placenta before dehydration. Gently steaming the placenta is a process that brings warmth back to the placenta, and thus back to the mother, to restore balance. TCM is believed to have tonifying, healing, and warming properties. If your placenta has been frozen, this is always the method of choice.

 

Raw Encapsulation: This method of preparing the placenta for encapsulation skips the steaming process all together and is set for dehydration while still “raw.” This process is only used within the first 48 hours after the birth to ensure freshness. It can be combined with TCM method so you receive half raw and half TCM. Some people choose this method because they are raw food activists and believe the cooking or steaming process destroys some of the nutrients. Using the RAW method provides a burst of energy up front.

 

Half TCMi, Half Raw Encapsulation: Interested in exploring the benefits of both TCMi and Raw? We recommend utilizing the Raw placenta capsules first to reduce postpartum bleeding and for the burst of energy up front, followed by the TCMi placenta capsules for the longer, tonifying benefits.

 

Whole Placenta Smoothies: This is a great option for those who only want to have placenta smoothies. Your placenta is prepared raw into individually wrapped, frozen placenta cubes to add to smoothies. Anytime you need a raw placenta boost, blend your smoothie with a placenta cube! The number of frozen cubes depends on the size of your placenta. Your first smoothie is pre-made and delivered to you at your birthing location for immediate enjoyment - you may choose from a chocolate almond protein smoothie or a delicious berry smoothie.

 

Loose Placenta Powder: Not a fan of swallowing pills? Perhaps you want TCMi prep and not in a pill form? Loose placenta powder is great for adding to smoothies and food!

Placenta Smoothies, 7 Days: This add-on service provides you with individually wrapped, frozen placenta cubes for seven days worth of smoothies (two smoothies per day for a total of 14 frozen smoothie cubes). Your first smoothie is pre-made and delivered to you at your birthing location for immediate enjoyment - you may choose from a chocolate almond protein smoothie or a delicious berry smoothie.

 

Placenta Tincture, 4oz: The placenta tincture is another way to reap the physical benefits from the placenta besides capsule form. Tinctures are mainly meant for energy, transition, stress, and hormone stabilization. They are great for returning menstrual cycles, menopause, and even the puberty of your daughter(s). Relatives on the maternal line of the birthing mom can also benefit from the tincture as it has an almost indefinite shelf life if stored properly. The tincture is made from a thumbnail size piece of raw placenta and high-grade alcohol, steeped for 6 weeks postpartum and then strained. It is stored in a 4oz dropper bottle.

 

Placenta Salve, 4oz: The placenta salve has many uses. It is used to heal Cesarean section incision after the wound is closed and to reduce scarring, itching and discomfort. The salve can also be used as soon as 3 days postpartum for mom and baby to soothe... hemorrhoids, perineal tears, diaper rash, eczema, sun burns, skin irritations, sore nipples, as an intensive moisturizer and for general healing & skin care. The placenta salve is a blend of organic coconut oil, almond oil, beeswax, olive oil infused with calendula, olive oil infused with comfrey, olive oil infused with plantain and lavender essential oil.

 

Placenta Prints, Umbilical Cord Keepsake: Placenta prints and cord keepsakes are a great way to commemorate the beauty of the placenta and to honor the special role it played in your baby's growth and development. These add-on services are free with any other placenta services. Placenta prints are made paint-free on watercolor paper. The umbilical cord is preserved as a heart-shaped keepsake.
