Placenta Encapsulation in VT & NH

Jana-Nola -main PE-image-2015 NS-logoI am a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist (PES) in Vermont and New Hampshire and prepare capsules for new mothers to consume after giving birth. I use a Traditional Chinese Medicine method that is on file with the FDA and follow disinfection practices that meet OSHA/EPA rules. I am certified through

To comply with state and federal guidelines, I encapsulate in your home within 3 days of birth. I bring all the necessary supplies and only need access to a sink, stove-top, electrical outlet, and a bit of counter space. The entire process is completed in two steps and takes a total of 5-7 hours; your kitchen is cleaned and sanitized after each step. 

Can a Group B Strep positive (GBS+) mom use placenta capsules? answer here

You might think it awkward to have this done in your home. Though it may be a minor inconvenience, I tell parents I’m not there to visit as a guest nor expect to meet the baby. I come and go quietly and leave the capsules for mom to take during her postpartum.

Placenta capsules contain…

  • Protein
  • Hormones  (i.e. oxytocin, prolactin)
  • Trace elements (i.e. iron, zinc)
  • B Vitamins (i.e. B6, B12)
  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
  • Immunoglobulin G (IgG)
  • Placental Opiod-Enhancing Factor

Traditionally, placenta capsules have been used after birth to…

  • Balance hormonal fluctuations
  • Stimulate breast milk supply
  • Increase iron levels (a.k.a. energy)
  • Lower risk of “baby blues”, depression, anxiety
  • Bring pain relief for c-section/stitches recovery
  • Tighten and tone uterus 
  • Strengthen immune system
  • Regulate thyroid
  • Recover more quickly from birth

Placenta capsules are as easy to taking as prenatal vitamins. There’s nothing fancy about it. You choose between plain or grape flavored capsules and take them during the weeks following your birth until your body begins to regulate its own hormones again. Remaining capsules can be stored for an indefinite amount of time in the freezer for a later time. 

I’ve been an Encapsulationist for many years now. What started as a hobby when my kids were young has become a big part of my life. I love to hear how my new moms feel after taking the capsules. The clarity in her eyes. The color returns to her cheeks. The feeling of being centered and on top of her game. The sleeping deeply when she sleeps. Happy mom, happy baby 🙂

This isn’t to say that every mom experiences the above, but most do. I wouldn’t drive such long distances or be on call 365 days a year if this work didn’t work and make a difference.
