Encapsulation, Smoothies, Tincture, Essence & Cord Keepsakes
What sets me apart from most encapsulators?
- I usually collect within a few hours, especially when given a heads up that you’re in labour!
- I pride myself on a fast turnaround – I’ll have your package back to you ready for your first dose, most often it will be within 2 days as you start them on day 3 after the birth
- I have been providing this service to the women and families of Sydney for nearly 10 years now – who would you feel confident in entrusting your placenta to? A person who is just starting out or someone who has serviced over 4000 clients?
Which areas do you collect from?
I work with clients giving birth all over Sydney – please see my booking form for collection/delivery fee information and if your hospital or home area is not mentioned, please get in touch and I can let you know my fee.
This service includes encapsulation, instructions on consuming and storage, picking up your placenta from your birthplace and FREE delivery to the above hospitals or areas of Sydney. I may be available to support your postpartum in other areas too by request.
**PLEASE NOTE **
All requests that are made last minute – that is, not fully paid for before labour starts, will incur a $50 rush fee – always best to book in your service as early as possible as sometimes your little one can’t wait to meet you!
TCM Placenta Encapsulation – $300 ($50 extra for twins)8
In the Traditional Chinese Method of encapsulation, I steam the placenta with chilli, ginger and lemon before dehydrating – this is said to help balance and keep the natural Qi (energy) within the placenta. I then ground into powder and encapsulate. It is believed that the state of mind one carries while working with the placenta will be absorbed into the medicine, so I ensure a healing focus is maintained throughout the process. Using this preparation is thought to bring out the placenta’s healing and tonifying properties as well as warming and healing the uterus.
You can expect a yield of around 120 capsules with this method based on an average size baby of 3.2kg.
Raw Placenta Encapsulation - $300 ($50 extra for twins)
Raw placenta encapsulation is dried raw without steaming. This process is a simple way to process the placenta that helps to retain the maximum nutrients. This is a great choice for those that would like to get the most from their placenta.
You can expect a yield of around 150 capsules with this method based on an average size baby of 3.2kg.
Placenta Smoothie - $80
To be consumed as soon as possible after birth of placenta. The smoothie is made of a 3cm piece of fresh placenta (the rest can be prepared into capsules or other remedies), a handful of fresh organic berries of choice, 1 whole banana and water. Simple and delicious
Clients have reported a raw placenta smoothie may:
- Help stop postpartum haemorrhaging and trigger the body to quickly heal internal wounds
- Significantly reduce blood loss
Give the body an immediate supply of essential vitamins and nutrients
- Provide the body with an immediate boost of hormones to begin healing the body after birth
- Give the mother an immediate feeling of strength and balance
- Most mothers who have the smoothie report milk ‘comes in’ at day 2 postpartum rather than 3-4 days postpartum
- Eases the hormonal transition to postpartum and helps prevent the ‘baby blues’ around the time when milk engorges the breasts
Placenta Tincture - $80
A small part of the raw placenta is added to a brandy base and left to ferment for 6 weeks. The placental tincture is strong and clients have reported it helps with hormonal balancing, including PMS (will keep indefinitely if stored properly).
The tincture is a fantastic follow-up once your capsules run out – by taking the tincture you will experience all the wonderful effects of the capsules long-term.
Mother Essence - $50
A small part of the raw placenta is added to distilled water, allowed to rest, strained and brandy is added. It takes 24hours to create the essence.
Clients have reported the mother essence heals on an energetic or vibrational level and may stimulate the ‘vital force’, help in times of distress, imbalance, give energy and strength when ill. It can be also be given to your baby in times of distress (will keep indefinitely if stored properly).
Cord Keepsake - FREE with every order!
To honour and treasure the umbilical cord that connected your new baby to your womb throughout pregnancy, we remove it from the placenta, shape into a keepsake e.g. a word, a spiral or a heart (depending on length of cord) and then dehydrate it
