As Independent Placenta Service Specialists, Always Birth Centered offers both the Traditional Chinese Method and the Raw Dehydration Method of preparation for encapsulation.
Studies have shown that the placenta is extremely rich in nutrients. It is high in iron, protein, vitamins, minerals, as well as your own natural hormones—making it perfectly created for you, by you.
Your placenta would be picked up from your delivery location , processed at the highest hygiene standards, and returned to you in approximately 72hrs.
Placenta encapsulation is the process of preparing a mother’s placenta directly following birth. Consuming one's placenta has been shown to replenish your body of what was lost during childbirth, as well as restore your overall balance. This includes stabilizing your hormones, which is known to reduce the effects of postpartum depression.
The Traditional Chinese Method first steams the placenta with a mixture of lemon, ginger, and peppers, while the Raw Dehydration Method leaves the placenta as is prior to dehydrating and encapsulating.
Placenta capsules are used to:
After separating the placenta from the umbilical cord, it is thoroughly rinsed and prepared using either the Raw Dehydration Method or the Traditional Chinese Method. It is then dehydrated for 15-18 hours and powdered, to be placed into vegetarian, non-gelatin capsules for the mother to ingest. All encapsulation services include an umbilical cord keepsake.
Tinctures are created using a small piece of raw placenta that is preserved in high grade 100 proof alcohol. It is said that the tincture has many of the same benefits as the capsules with an indefinite shelf life that does not lose potency over time. Most mothers use the tincture for hormonal imbalance, PMS symptoms, milk supply drops, migraines, menopause, sleep issues, and during times of illness and stress.
Before the encapsulation process begins, Placenta Prints are created using either the blood on the surface of the placenta or food grade dye. They are created on high-quality, acid-free watercolor paper or canvas depending on your preference. The Schultz or fetal side of the placenta shows the “tree of life” that helped to grow your precious new baby.

Capsule yield depends on placenta size and method used. It is not recommended to consume your placenta if it is not quickly processed or if you had a chronic infection at the time of delivery.
