It is best to begin the encapsulation process within 48 hours after the birth of your baby, but the sooner the better. I will pick up your placenta as soon as possible after you deliver and usually have the pills back to you in about 24-36 hours of the birth.
After I receive your placenta I wash it, gently steam it, and slice it into thin strips which are then dehydrated overnight. The next morning I grind it into a fine powder and put it into capsules.
I then return the pills to you as well as the dried umbilical cord, which I will make into a keepsake unique to your baby.
If you have any special instructions or requests please do not hesitate to ask. My procedure is to return only the capsules and the cord, but I can accommodate many custom preparations.
Vegetarian capsules are available upon request.
