Placenta Encapsulation

Dried placenta powder was used a potent medicine in China and also in Europe to cure many ailments related to birth up untill the 19th century. The benefits of consuming your placenta after birth are now being rediscovered and there is much anecdotal evidence about its benefits.

Testimonials reveal that placenta pills can increase energy levels, promote lactation, prevent post natal depression and slow post birth bleeding thereby improving post birth recovery.The placenta is rich in iron, stem cells and many other essential nutrients.

If you are interested in trying it the process is simple.Tara will send out all the instructions for you and your midwives, and is also able to lend you a cool bag and collection kit. All you have to do is fill out the booking form and make sure your preference is clearly stated on your birth plan and the rest is easy. Ask your birth partner to contact Tara after the birth and she will arrange collection.

Once the placenta is collected it is sliced very thinly and then dehydrated, and then ground into a fine powder which your specialist will make into capsules, a bit like vitamin pills, which have no aftertaste. There are also many other remedies you can try such as homeopathy, tinctures, creams and balms. If you are interested please contact Tara for more information.

£200 which includes collection and delivery and either the simple or steamed remedy.
