Placental encapsulation is the practice of ingesting the placenta after it has been properly prepared and placed into capsules for consumption by the mother to impart a variety of health benefits.
It contains iron, protein, stem cells, and is rich in vitamin B6
There are 2 methods most commonly used when encapsulating a placenta.
Firstly there is the method where by the placenta is dehydrated, ground into a fine powder and placed into capsules ready for consumption. This is the preferred method used by The Oxytocin Collective due to it's high level of potency.
Secondly, there is the Traditional Chinese Method (TCM) which involves first steaming the placenta, sometimes with medicinal herbs, before then dehydrating it. This will give a lower yield of capsules at completion and have slightly less potency.

Placentas are prepared in a sterile environment and we will never process more than one placenta at any one time, so there is no risk of mix up or cross contamination.

Placenta Encapsulation can be practiced after both vaginal and caesarean births.

We are flexible to your needs and happy to work with you regarding any special requests; for example some mothers like to keep a piece of their placenta to bury under a special tree or for use in jewellery.
We are happy to discuss what will be the best options for you and your family.
Reports from mothers include:
♁ Helping to balance hormones for a more enjoyable post-natal period
♁ Replenishing depleted iron levels
♁ Assisting the uterus to return to its pre-pregnancy state
♁ Reducing post-natal bleeding
♁ Increasing milk production as has been proven in studies
♁ Increased energy levels
Due to the nature of the process of encapsulation, we are limited in the number of clients we can take on each month. To avoid disappointment we encourage parents to contact us via email, facebook or our book online tab with their estimated due date as soon as possible to ensure their position for that month.
Embrace that Oxytocin!

As our business grows and with so many local women adopting placenta encapsulation as part of their post partum recovery regime, we have chosen to offer a more affordable option for clients able to transport their placenta to us which allows us to dedicate more time to the encapsulation process.
