Placenta Encapsulation

Womb Mates

Ancient Chinese Tradition Meets Modern Science

“Zi he che,” or prepared dried placenta, has been used as a post partum tonic for thousands of years in Chinese Medicine. As an herbalist, I prepare each placenta according to the ancient Chinese tradition. The placenta is steamed with herbs, drained, dehydrated, and encapsulated. I employ my extensive training in placentaphagy to fully examine and prepare each placenta in a surgically clean and dedicated environment.

Why Encapsulate?

Benefits of Placenta Encapsulation include

Decreases “baby blues” and postpartum depression
Increases and enriches breastmilk production
Contains B vitamins that increase energy and fight fatigue
Is iron-rich, lowering chances of depression and iron deficiency
Can improve sleep
Replenishes nutrients lost during childbirth
Contains oxytocin that increases uterine contraction, enhances bonding, reduces bleeding and promotes wound healing
Contains POEF molecules that provides natural pain relief
