WHAT IS PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION?
Placenta encapsulation is the process of the postpartum mama consuming her placenta once it has been dried, ground, and put into a capsule form. This custom is centuries old and is for the purpose of improving the mothers mood, hormones, and energy during the 4th Trimester.
POSSIBLE BENEFITS INCLUDE:
Increased release of Oxytocin, helping the uterus return to normal size while encouraging bonding with the infant
Stress reduction by an increase of CRH hormone
Decrease in postpartum depression levels
Restores iron in the blood after birth to reduce anemia in the postpartum period
Increased milk flow with the HPL hormone to help establish a healthy supply
Replenishes Vitamin B from the labor and birthing period, giving the mama a consistent boost of energy
Lessens postpartum bleeding coupled with a quicker recovery time
The placenta is prepared with the utmost respect and health standards. We provide your capsules with written instructions and will walk you through it during the delivery time.
PLACENTA TINCTURE is a highly concentrated liquid that is shown to help mamas long term. The main focus of the tincture is to be used for hormonal stabilization, especially when the menstrual cycle returns. Some choose to use it for far longer, into the menopause stage.
The HEALING SALVE is a traditional “first aid salve” that we prepare with your placenta. It has a blend of herbs, beeswax, and nourishing skin oils. Uses for the salve would be for topical skin issues such as scrapes, burns, perineal trauma, cesarean scar, and even for your baby’s bottom!
$250 Placenta Encapsulation (completed 24-72 hours postpartum)
$30 Placenta Tincture (completed 6 weeks postpartum)
$40 Placenta Salve (completed up to one week postpartum)
PACKAGE OF ALL THREE: $300
*No pickup/delivery fee at Palms West Hospital, Wellington Regional Hospital, Good Samaritan Hospital, St. Mary’s Medical Hospital.

In addition to the medicinal uses of the Placenta, we offer a beautiful way to honor the birth of mother and baby by making a keepsake print of it. These prints are unique to your journey, and we make them with the upmost respect. They are done before the placenta is washed, which is what makes the "ink" of the print. These keepsakes remind us why the placenta is often referred to as "The Tree of Life".

WHAT IS BELLY BINDING?
Traditionally, belly binding is used to support your abdominal wall and loosened ligaments postpartum to aid in your body's healing process while your organs are returning to their pre-pregnancy position. We use 100% cotton colored with eco friendly dye. Typically we wrap about 24 hours postpartum for a vaginal birth, and between 4-6 weeks (or until incision heals) for a cesarean birth. The binds are worn for the traditional 40 day postpartum period.
BENEFITS OF BELLY BINDING:
Supports abdominal muscles post birth
Helps align the hips
Aids in the postpartum healing process
Supports proper posture and spinal realignment
Helps to slim the tummy and rib cage
Relieves water retension
The cost includes your belly bind and 1 private binding session postpartum.
