Can a Group B Strep positive (GBS+) mom use placenta capsules? In short, it depends on the type of preparation method used.
NOT ALL ENCAPSULATION PROVIDERS USE THE SAME SAFETY STANDARDS
I am trained to prepare placenta into capsule form using a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) method that is on file with the FDA; a method that addresses the issue of bacterial pathogens. I have safely prepared placenta capsules for Group B Strep (GBS+) positive moms since 2011.
The TCM method has been used for postpartum healing as far back as 600 AD to establish homeostasis in the new mother. This method is in accordance with USDA standards for raw meat preparation and involves a heating portion.
