To some, placenta encapsulation sounds like the craziest thing in the world, dare I say, “gross!” For others, they have heard of the benefits and they are interested in how they can experience them. And an even smaller percentage of people understand all the details and enthusiastically bring it up at dinner parties for unique conversation starters. (That might be me, don’t judge!) But really, what's the deal with placenta encapsulation??

 

I’ll give it to you straight:

Placentophagy: “The ingestion of a human placenta at any time postpartum, by any person, either in raw or altered (e.g., cooked, dried, steeped in liquid) form.”

 

Why do we do this? Certain cultures believe that the placenta is rich in nutrients that will help the mother to recover from childbirth, including slowing and stopping hemorrhaging after birth and helping with milk supply. More recently in the U.S. women have been hearing about the reported benefits from their friends and co-workers and have decided to give placenta encapsulation a shot.

 

My clients have reported many benefits from consuming their placenta!
