Placenta preparation provides a you with a variety of options for processing your placenta for short and long-term use.
Placenta Preparation Options:
- Raw Placenta Smoothie
- Placenta Loose Dehydrated Powder
- Placenta Encapsulation
- Placenta Tincture
- Placenta Salve
- Herbal Blends
Prices begin at $350
Price depends on if any herbs are used, if you prefer vegan or gelatin capsules, and how you desire your placenta to be processed - Raw, No Steaming, TCM Method, Encapsulated, Tinctured, Loose Powder, Salve...etc. Placenta preparation takes anywhere from 2 days (dehydrating) to 4 weeks (tinctures and salves) and are typically completed at your home. Placenta preparation is scheduled during postpartum visits for breastfeeding support or general care.
All placenta preparation methods will provide you with a small piece of your placenta raw to be stored in the refrigerator for immediate use and until the placenta preparation is complete. I do not use a coffee grinder for powdering due to possible contamination with other placentas (coffee grinders leave tiny amounts of powder behind under the blades that cannot be fully cleaned, so I use a mortar and pestle which takes extra time).
NOTE: Please read THIS POST on placentophagy and processing your own placenta which includes pros and cons of placenta consumption before deciding if this is right for you.
