Placenta Encapsulation

In a space free of judgment, women can explore every option regarding pregnancy; how they give birth, how they care for their babies and…you guessed it, what they do with their placentas.

At Utah Valley Doulas, the options we present are supported by the evidence available. In some cases, it’s scientific evidence, while in others, it’s anecdotal, but with placenta encapsulation, it’s a combination of both.

Because western medicine takes a while to catch up with eastern medicine, there has not been a lot of scientific research done regarding the benefits of placenta consumption. The little bit that has been done, though, showed some tremendous benefits regarding milk supply. On the other hand, the anecdotal evidence of placenta encapsulation shows resounding benefits across the world.

Women are sharing with other women just how much of a difference placenta encapsulation for consumption made for their postpartum recovery!

These benefits include:

  • Increased milk supply
  • Assistance with hormone balance
  • Reduction of postpartum bleeding
  • Increase of iron levels
  • Increased energy
  • Reduction of postpartum blues
  • Reduced stress levels
  • Positive postpartum experience

At Utah Valley Doulas, we know just how precious these benefits are to you. Because we understand the sacredness of this time and the importance of your health and safety, we treat every precious placenta with the care it deserves. All placenta encapsulation services are done in the safety of your own home.

Our placenta encapsulation specialist will bring all of the necessary equipment. She will visit on two back-to-back days. On day one, she will clean, steam, and prep your placenta for dehydration. Before the specialist leaves, the dehydrator will be set up so that overnight the moisture can be removed from the placenta. The following day, she will return to process it by crushing it into powder and placing it into vegan capsules for easy consumption.
