PLACENTA PILLS 
Turning your placenta into easy placenta pills to swallow. Consequently, new mothers have easy to consume tablets, as a supplement during the first weeks of your postpartum period.

Therefore, I became a professional Encapsulation Specialist after learning of its many benefits and how it had also helped some of the families she’d watched struggle with their postpartum recovery over the years.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION?
Practiced for centuries as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, to treat postpartum hormone imbalances and to aid in the relief of fatigue and lactation issues in new mothers. What hormones are found in placentas tissues? Some studies have detected the presence of CRH, hPL, Oxytocin, ACTH, estrogenic and gestagenic active substances.

  • Balance hormones (using your own hormones, reintroduce back in your system)
  • Enhance milk production
  • Lessen postpartum bleeding
  • Increase energy (replenish your system with the iron-rich placenta)
  • Last, fewer emotional postpartum swings and issues (baby blues and postpartum depression)
 
80% of all new moms experience the Baby Blues
98% of our clients said they would encapsulate again

WHAT IS THE PROCESS?
Odile has been trained by PBi and I follow the Traditional Chinese Medicine method, technique, and practices. During this two days process (4 hours total), the placenta is steamed, dried, powdered and put into capsules (80-140).  Therefore, your placenta never leaves your home – Odile brings the equipment and she leaves your kitchen spotless! In addition, Odile offers a follow-up within a week (phone call, text or email).

What is a tincture?

In addition to the capsules, you can use the tincture after your placenta pills are gone.  And it only takes a small piece of the ground dehydrated placenta added in high-grade alcohol. And it’s an ideal pick-me-up, available any time of transition, or emotional challenges for both mother and child.

As a result, our professional capsules services are most beneficial in the postpartum weeks because they warm up and balance back the body, the tincture is most useful in the months and years to come.

What is placenta print art?

Honoring your baby placenta! A placenta print is using your baby’s placenta to make a print on paper as a keepsake.  In fact, I use natural blood, or/and natural food coloring on acid-free artists paper.  For example, some families frame them and display their prints as art or others choose to save them as personal keepsakes.
