Placenta Encapsulation Services

Welcome!

COVID-19 Update - I am still encapsulating and taking new clients!!! I have all the necessary supplies and equipment to continue to safely encapsulate, and clean, and sanitize my space and equipment between clients. Out of an abundance of caution, I have moved to using 100% new equipment for each client (excepting my Magic Bullet base and dehydrator, neither of which have no contact with the placenta or capsules). As cleaning and sanitizing supplies are becoming more scarce, it is becoming easier to get replacement parts, so I am proactively moving to using new equipment for all new clients. Going forward all placentas will be dehydrated on brand new trays and all other supplies will be single use and discarded after use and replaced for every placenta. Please let me know if you have any questions. 

Additionally, I have learned that as of 4/1/2020, Methodist Hospital is no longer releasing placentas to patients. Please know, you have every right to your placenta, but you may have to battle to keep it if you are birthing at Methodist. If you are interested in encapsulation and are birthing a Methodist, please reach out with any questions.  
Customized care just for you
