Placenta encapsulations are a capsule made from your placenta which has been dehydrated and turned into a very easy to take pill form.
Placenta encapsulations can help support a better postpartum mood, provide energy and assist with milk production. I highly recommend them and see them as an insurance policy for your postpartum period.

Which process of encapsulation do you offer?
We offer the traditional method of encapsulation, which is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The process includes steaming the placenta prior to dehydration in order to kill germs or bacteria. Additionally this method is designed to help balance the placenta after childbirth.
When do you start the process?
Ideally we like to begin the process within 2 days of your birth, so that your capsules will be ready for ingestion by day 3. If that is not possible, or undesirable by you, freezing your placenta and then defrosting it prior to encapsulation is recommended. Your placenta can be frozen for up to 3 months.
Why do you do the process in my home?
The standards that I hold myself to far exceed the standards of my industry. It benefits you to have this process done in your home in the following ways:
You can be confident that your placenta is in fact yours as it is the only one in your home and you brought it there yourself.
There is no risk of your placenta being exposed to any unfamiliar bacteria that may interfere with healthy postpartum recovery.
As a Postpartum Placenta Specialist, I can support you best when I am with you. I am trained to educate and support you during this period and want you to reap the full benefits of my offerings.
How long does the process take?
The entire process will take approximately 24 hours. I will be with you for 2 hours each day for 2 consecutive days.
I highly recommend Bella Luna Birth Services! Luna is such a caring individual and is highly professional and very good at what she does. She truly goes above and beyond expectations. We used Luna for her placenta encapsulation services but after experiencing how great and helpful she was, we definitely wish we would’ve been able to have her as our Doula. Luna was very clean, kind, respectful of our home and took the time to explain every part of the process to us so that we knew what was happening at all times. This was my first child and I was admittedly very nervous about the experience, but I am very grateful to have had Luna checking in on us, helping to answer any questions we had and calming some of my fears. Thank you Luna for everything!!! 🙏
