WHAT IS PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION?
Placenta encapsulation is the practice of turning a raw placenta into a product safe for a woman's consumption post birth. It is dehydrated, ground, and placed into capsules. Traditionally used in many ancient Chinese medicines, the placenta is believed to have numerous health and hormonal benefits for the new mother. It is most frequently taken during the first six weeks postpartum, but can be processed in different forms to last a woman's lifespan. Many woman not only utilize their placenta for postpartum healing but during their menstrual period as well. It is also believed to counter act some symptoms of menopause!
One of the many theories is that consuming the placenta replaces valuable nutrients and hormones that would otherwise be lost after birth. Each placenta is completely unique to the mother, so essentially you are ingesting a hormonal supplement that has naturally been tailored to your body.

words from our clients
"One of the best decisions I've made for myself and my baby was using Jamie's services. I am a first time mom and she was so helpful during the process. I take my placenta encapsulations every day and I have great energy, a wonderful milk supply and absolutely no postpartum blues. I recommend Jamie and her services to all pregnant mommas! You won't regret it!" - S.C.
"Jamie is an incredible person. When she lived in Texas and I had my first, we used her services and couldn't have asked for a better person to walk me through all of it. Even when she moved to NJ and I had an extremely rough pregnancy with my twins, she offered me so much console through phone calls. That lasted from bed rest up until I was rushed back to the OR. You can tell birth and placenta (and everything related to mama and baby wellness after) is something she is very passionate about. I would recommend her to anyone!" - R.V
