Choose One Method:

The TCM style of preparing for placenta encapsulation is inspired by the Traditional Chinese Medicine method that involves cleaning the placenta, gently heating the placenta with fresh, organic lemon and ginger and then dehydrating the placenta before it is put into capsules. Using this preparation is thought to bring out the placentas healing and toning properties. In the TCM theory, it is believed that the process of birth (no baby on the inside and blood loss) leaves mom very yin or cold. One way to help this is to add yang energy or heat energy. We do this through the gentle steaming process. The placenta is not cooked so it retains all of its nutrients. The TCM method also provides a slow/ steady release of energy helping mom to stabilize in the postpartum period. This method usually produces fewer pills and may require that mom take more pills for a longer period of time.  (Please note that I am not a TCM practitioner.  My placenta encapsulation process is inspired by the TCM methods.)  $190 (average of 80-100 capsules)



The RAW method of preparation skips the heating process altogether. Raw food activists believe that steaming the placenta destroys some of the essential nutrients. Using this option provides a burst of energy upfront and great hormone stabilization. This method will provide mom with the most amount of pills possible and they will be very potent which mom would be able to take fewer pills each day.  $180 (average 100-120 capsules)

During my first pregnancy, I experienced a ton of anxiety and depression. This time, thanks to Courtney, I had more energy and (so far – 4 months postpartum) no depression! I feel great and am so glad I decided to have the encapsulation done.” Brittany M., Ann Arbor


Choose a combination of both methods:  $200

 Capsule dosage suggestion is 1 capsule, 3 times daily with a snack.  This is a very loose recommendation.  There is no right or wrong dosage, it varies for each individual.
