Welcome to Seattle Placenta Encapsulation.
From mother to bottle, the placenta can continue to nourish beyond pregnancy. It plants, it grows, it holds a life, and it can benefit you too. I can provide you with a service that even the most squeamish mothers can handle---placenta encapsulation! Yes, taking your placenta and turning it into pills that you can swallow just like vitamins.
Placentas are honored in so many cultures across the world.
Many cultures practice placenta burial as a way of binding the child to their ancestral roots. Other cultures believe that the placenta is energetically the baby's twin. This is interesting considering the placenta contains the child's DNA, stem cells, and has provided all oxygen and nutrients to the baby starting in the 2nd trimester. In Chinese Medicine, the placenta has been highly respected for its medicinal value for a very long time. Yet, in America, the placenta is sadly looked at as something "gross" to be disposed of after birth. There is no second thought about what life forces this organ has provided for your growing baby throughout pregnancy.
A growing number of women are beginning to see the potential benefits that placentophagy (the act of mammals eating the placenta of their young after childbirth) has to offer. They are recognizing the effects of replenishing the hungry and tired body after labor with all of the iron, protein, vitamins, and minerals that the placenta is naturally enriched with. There are now links between placenta encapsulation and reduced postpartum depression and "baby blues", as well as an increased potential in positive breastmilk production---both due to the amount of the mother's own hormones found in her placenta. We are also hearing about stories of placenta consumption reducing or stopping postpartum bleeding and hemorrhaging in the mother.
Yes, the human placenta is incredibly powerful. Don't let something so powerful go to waste! Learn more about placenta encapsulation today.
