Placenta Encapsulation
We offer traditional placenta encapsulation. We use only the highest quality vegetarian capsules made from 100% vegetable derived source HPMC (Hidroxy, Propyl, Methyl, Cellulose), free of starch, sugar, corn, syrup, wheat, dairy, and other potential irritants or preservatives. The v-caps used for the encapsulation process are Kosher & Halal certified.

Placenta Prints

Some families wish to commemorate their child's birth with a keepsake art print of the placenta. Please select this option on your registration form so that we can accommodate your wishes. Our prints are created with archival-quality artist's paper. We do not use pigments or inks for the art prints unless you are only having prints made, and not having your placenta encapsulated or otherwise ingested.     

Placenta Tincture 

You may opt to have a tincture made with your placenta in the course of the encapsulation preparation or in lieu of encapsulation. Some mothers do choose to bury the placenta and reserve only a small piece for tincture. Tinctures rest for six weeks after the birth and can be used on their own in times of transition, stress and illness or in conjunction with your capsules. A small portion of the Placenta Tincture can be used to create Placenta Essence and Homeopathic Placenta Remedy if the parents so decide. If you decide you want a tincture made after the placenta has been encapsulated, an alternative tincture can be made using a small portion of your capsules, about 1-2 per ounce of tincture  desired. Detailed instructions are provided for use of tinctures.

Commemorative Placenta Preparation

Are you interested in honoring your placenta in a special way? Some parents choose encapsulation while others choose to bury their placenta with a special tree or plant. Now you have another option- Commemorative Placenta Preparation using the same Traditional Method of preparation, without encapsulating the preserved placenta. Keep this precious reminder in a keepsake bottle (provided, example pictured above) or your own special baby keepsake box. Some moms keep them on their mantle, others in a special baby box, and some choose to bury it this way.


Birth to Earth Commemorative Burial Kit

Many families choose to commemorate the birth of their child by planting a tree in their honor. Selecting a tree is always a bit tricky but planting it with the placenta can also be a very messy affair. The Birth to Earth Placenta Planting Pack makes your tree planting mess-free, stress-free and a bit more special. Why more special? Because it includes a fabulous book to share with your child about their special tree and a copper tree tag.

After purchasing the kit, your care provider or doula can package your placenta in the biodegradable placenta package that you can bring home and freeze until you are ready to plant your tree. When the time comes, pop the package out of the freezer, add dirt + tree and voila!

The pack includes Corn Starch Bags, 100% Recycled Cardboard Capsule, Convenient Carry Bag, "Your Tree" Child's Keepsake Record Book, and Copper Tree Tag to record your child's name and birth date on their tree. All components break down to a natural hummus leaving no toxic residues. Packed at birth, the 100% Biodegradable capsule is planted in the ground requiring no messy defrosting or handling.
