Pregnancy and childbirth are unbelievably taxing to a woman’s system, and scientific research has shown that the placenta is rich in the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that your body needs to recover. Throughout history and around the world the placenta has been used by women after birth. The purpose of placenta encapsulation is to reintroduce the beneficial vitamins, minerals, hormones, proteins, and other nutrients back into your body following labor and birth.


​Blissful Midwifery believes that placental encapsulation is a vital part of postpartum recovery. Encapsulation ensures preservation, allowing the placenta to be utilized while mom’s postpartum hormones gradually regulate themselves. It is the most noninvasive form of consuming your placenta, so it's usually the most accepted as it comes in easy-to-take capsules. 


Encapsulation involves dehydrating the raw placenta. The dried placenta is then made into a powder and filled into vegetable capsules. You can make approximately 100-250 capsules out of a placenta. Our encapsulation services include transporting, preparation and encapsulation.
