Placenta Encapsulation with Tara, CPES.
I am a Certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist (CPES) for new mothers in Vermont and New Hampshire. I prepare placenta capsules using a Traditional Chinese Medicine method on file with the FDA and follow OSHA/EPA disinfection guidelines. I am certified.
My COVID-2019 Protocol can be found here.
To comply with state and federal guidelines, I encapsulate in your home (or friend, family member) and bring necessary supplies. I only need access to sink, stove-top, electrical outlet, and counter space. The entire process is completed in 2 steps; taking total of 5-7 hours. I typically arrive about 10am and finish by 7pm. Your kitchen (+ equipment) is sanitized before/after each step.
You might think it awkward to have me come to your home. Though I may be a minor inconvenience, I am not a guest nor expect to meet you or baby. I quietly come ‘n go; leaving your capsules and dosage instructions behind for postpartum healing.
Placenta capsules contain:
- 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 are 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 prenatal vitamin.
You can choose to have placenta packed in plain or grape flavor capsules. These can be taken during the initial weeks after birth while your pituitary gland relearns to regulate hormones (placenta regulates hormones during pregnancy). Any remaining capsules can be stored in the freezer for a later time, such as once your menstrual cycle returns or even for menopause.
I’ve been encapsulating since 2011; what started as a hobby has woven into the fabric of my life. I love being on-call and receiving a mom’s call that she is in labor and later on how she feels with her capsules. That the clarity is back in her eyes, color back in her cheeks, sleep deeper, and she is more centered and on top of her game.
Happy mom, happy baby, happy family 🙂
