Placenta Encapsulation FAQ

Q: Why should I eat my placenta?!

A: While there is limited academic research on the benefits, our clients have reported a variety of self-reported benefits, such as improved mood, increased energy, an increase in milk supply, and more.

Q: Will the hospital give me a hard time?

A: We haven't had issues with hospitals releasing placentas to clients. Generally, they will have you sign a release form so that you can take it home yourself. Make sure to chat with your medical provider about it in advance.

Q: Where is my placenta encapsulated?

A: We encapsulate your placenta in your home over two consecutive days. This eliminates the risk of cross-contamination and gives you access to the encapsulator who is available for questions throughout the process.

Q: How many placenta pills will I get?

A: Anywhere from 75 - 150, depending on the size of the placenta.

Q: How long will it take?

A: Two consecutive days; the encapsulator will be at your house for about 1.5-2 hours each day.

Q: When do I take my placenta pills?

A: We will provide general guidelines for consumption, and we encourage you to listen to your body’s cues. Every woman is different, but our suggested guidelines include:

  • 2 capsules 3x a day for the first 3 days
  • 1 capsule 3x a day for the next 7-10 days
  • 1 - 2 capsules a day until they're gone

We do not recommend you save the placenta pills for long-term use; the reported benefits occur in those first few months postpartum.

Q: Where do I store my placenta pills?

A: Always keep them refrigerated. And as with any capsule, avoid moisture/getting them wet.
