Placenta Encapsulation

What Is Placenta Encapsulation?

“Placental encapsulation is the practice of ingesting the placenta after it has been steamed, dehydrated, ground, and placed into pills. Traditionally, this is taken by the mother and is believed to impart numerous health benefits. It is frequently taken shortly after giving birth, during a woman’s menstrual period, or during menopause with the belief that it helps counter some of the symptoms of menopause.” Read more from the American Pregnancy Association about placenta encapsulation.

Start here: Birth Preferences and Tips!

The birth of your child should be one of the most amazing experiences of your life. Unfortunately, many women in the US experience birth trauma. Here are some tips for writing your Birth Plan. A Birth Plan is your preferences written out to help your support know what you want.

Tips:

  • Take a tour of the place you are delivering
  • Clarify what is routine verse policy
  • Call it your birth preferences (The staff is more likely to be supportive when preferences is used instead of plan.)
  • Keep it under one page (Doing this makes it easy to read.)
  • Educate yourself on what is medically necessary verses routine (Typically if something is medically necessary it is more likely be a policy. However, not all policies are medically necessary and just because it is a policy does not mean you have to consent.)
  • View samples of prewritten samples such as the one below
  • Make it only about Labor, Delivery and Postpartum Care of mother and baby
