Placenta Encapsulation with Tara, CPES.

I am a Certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist for new mothers in Vermont and New Hampshire. I prepare placenta capsules using a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) method on file with FDA and follow disinfection practices that meet OSHA/EPA guidelines. I am certified through PBi.

To comply with state and federal guidelines, I encapsulate in your home. I bring all needed supplies and only need access to a sink, stove-top, electrical outlet, and 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 am not a guest nor expect to meet baby. I come and go quietly and leave the capsules for mom to take during 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

Placenta capsules have been used after birth to:

    • Balance hormones
    • Stimulate breast-milk supply
    • Increase iron/energy
    • Decrease risk of “baby blues” and/or depression/anxiety
    • Relieve pain from c-section or stitches
    • Tighten ‘n tone uterus to pre-pregnant size
    • Strengthen immune system
    • Shorten postpartum bleeding (lochia)
    • Regulate thyroid
    • Recover from birth

Easy as taking a prenatal vitamin.

You can choose to have your placenta packaged in plain or grape flavor capsules. These can be taken, with or without food, during the initial postpartum weeks while your body learns to regulate hormones again. Any remaining capsules can be stored in the freezer for a later time. 

I have been encapsulating since 2011. What started as a part-time hobby is now a big part of my life. I love being ‘on-call’ and hearing from moms about how they are doing with the capsules. I love seeing the clarity return to her eyes, the color rush back to her cheeks, her sleep deepen, hearing that she feels centered and on top of her game.

Happy mom, happy baby, happy family 🙂
