Placenta Encapsulation

Placenta Encapsulation

Consumption of the placenta (placentophagy) has been observed in nearly all mammals. In traditional Chinese medicine, the use of the placenta has been documented since 1578.

Women across many cultures consider that the unique properties of the placenta make it the perfect postpartum food.

Placenta capsules contain prepared and dehydrated placenta which itself contains many, many beneficial substances including iron, B6, oestrogen, progesterone, thyroid hormones, oxytocin and vasopressin.

By taking your placenta capsules you may:

  • Increase your postpartum energy levels
  • Decrease your postpartum anaemia
  • Stabilise hormonal fluctuations
  • Minimise or eliminate baby blues
  • Decrease your likelihood of developing postnatal depression
  • Reduce the duration and volume of postpartum blood loss
  • Encourage your body's healing and reduce pain

A little feedback

I had my placenta encapsulated by Kate after both my births’. It was a pleasure to have her gently guiding me through the whole process. I found the capsules very supportive. My milk flowed, and my mood was very stable. If there was a day when I felt I needed support, I would take a capsule and it really picked me up. "
