Placenta Services

I just had my first child and used Lindsay’s services to encapsulate my placenta. It was probably the best thing I could have done for a speedy and happy recovery from my birth!   My midwife told me it was actually much faster than most. The pills really helped my attitude and kept my spirits high. -Emily, mama

Placenta Capsules
:  I prepare capsules by steaming the placenta, dehydrating, then encapsulating the powder using vegan capsules.  All processes are done according to safe food handling practices. Capsules can be taken as a postpartum supplement to promote healing, hormonal balance, lactation, and energy.  $300

Placenta Tincture:  Alcohol is infused with a piece of the raw placenta to make a tincture that will last long-term. Women use the tincture beyond postpartum to promote hormonal balance and health during menses, menopause, and times of stress or transition. Unlike the capsules, the tincture is not intended for continuous use, but rather it is intended for use on an as-needed-basis.  $25 with capsules or $300 without capsules

Placenta Prints: The placenta has a beautiful “tree of life” pattern which is pressed and printed onto paper as an artistic keepsake. $25 with capsules or $300 without capsules

Keepsake Cord: Baby’s umbilical cord is dried as a keepsake ornament. Free with capsules

I offer free pick-up and delivery to east bay locations.  There is a $25 travel fee for San Francisco, Peninsula, North Bay, and Antioch locations

Benefits of placenta encapsulation

The placenta is the organ formed in the lining of the uterus that supports your baby’s life in your belly. Encapsulating your placenta can be a wonderful and natural way to support yourself postpartum.  Your placenta is packed with hormones and nutrients that are perfectly designed for your postpartum body, mind, and soul including but not limited to:

  • Stem cells for growth and regeneration
  • Iron for optimal oxygen absorption
  • Vitamin E for repairing skin cell damage
  • Oxytocin hormone (the love hormone) promotes bonding and happiness, helps the uterus return to its pre-baby size, and is essential for breastfeeding
  • Corticotropin-releasing hormone for stress reduction
  • Cytokines for healing and replacing tissue and cell damage

Anecdotal evidence indicates the beneficial effects of the placenta include:

  • Increased milk production
  • Pain relief
  • Faster healing
  • Improved iron levels
  • Boosted energy and spirits
  • Leveling of mother’s hormonal adjustments
  • Improved sleep
