We currently offer placenta encapsulation services in two methods, though there are many ways to experience the benefits of the placenta. With placenta encapsulation, your placenta is dried, ground, and placed into capsule form. The capsules are tasteless and odorless, thereby making placenta encapsulation an easy way to derive the placenta nutrients.
Mothers may choose between the Traditional method and the Raw method of placenta encapsulation. The differences and benefits of each method are discussed on the FAQ page.
