While starting my career as a birth doula I became fascinated with the placenta and how it works. I began researching all of the benefits postpartum. I am now working towards certification with Full Circle Placenta. I have done training in OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens & Infection Control for Placenta Encapsulation and also CA food safety certification.
Placenta encapsulation is the process of preparing your placenta after the birth of your baby by dehydrating, powdering and placing it into capsules for you to use as you see fit.
There are two methods of preparation. The Traditional preparation method involves first steaming the placenta over ginger, lemon, and hot peppers. These herbs are included in the steaming water only, and are not incorporated into the capsules.
The Raw method involves dehydrating and preparing the raw placenta.
Raw preparation yields about 30% more capsules than does Traditional preparation and women report fast-acting results over the short term. Tradition preparation reportedly gives a more steady, slow-release result lasting over a longer term.
