placenta Medicine

 Throughout the pregnancy, the placenta has been responsible for a great deal of hormonal production and regulation, so when it leaves the body there is a drastic shift. With placenta medicine you reintroduce your body’s own hormones and enzymes in powder or tincture form, so as to restore hormonal balance, provide nutrients and energy, and help the body recover from the birth. Through placenta medicine, I help transform the placenta into part of the birth ritual and aid in the recovery process.

Many people who have taken placenta medicine have reported:

  • More stable mood

  • Increased energy

  • Enhanced breast milk supply

  • Faster uterine healing

  • Decreased blood loss in the post partum period

  • improved menses symptoms

The Process:

Preparing a placenta usually takes around 30 hours. During the process, I utilize universal precautions for the safest methods with no contamination. After cleaning the placenta, I can either lightly steam it with warming herbs for a just a few minutes, or prepare it raw. I place it to dehydrate for 24 hours, after which I grind it into a powder.  From there, I can either encapsulate it, blend it with honey, or give the family the powder to do what they want with it (some people like to put it in their shampoo or lotion) I usually have it returned to the family within a few days. 

A placenta tincture is also available in conjunction to the above medicines. It is shelf stable for years and can be given to baby in the future when they need it. The tincture takes about 2 weeks.
