Placenta Encapsulation 


Placentophagia is the process of a new mother consuming her placenta postpartum by being steamed, dehydrated, ground into a powder and then put in capsule form.  Many studies and research are available at your request on this topic.  It has been shown to:


  • Prevent and lessen the risk of postpartum depression 

  • Replenish iron from blood loss during birth

  • Lends a consistent flow of oxytocin after the birth euphoria has ended

  • Provides HPL hormone to help establish a health milk supply.

  • Stabilize the ever changing post birth hormones

  • Replenish B vitamins and energy lost during labor

  • Protect from infection and bleeding due to retained placenta tissue or membranes

  • Offer natural pain relief from the labor and birth of the baby


Hormones are known to be in the placenta and they are delivered to Mom while she is pregnant.  Once the placenta is delivered she is no longer receiving these hormones and levels drop significantly.  We know that oxytocin, cortisone, interferon, prostaglandins, hemoglobin, urokinase inhibiting factor and factor XIII, Prolactin/HPL are all found in the placenta.  We are the only mammals on Earth (with the exception of water mammals) that do not consume their amniotic fluid or placenta!  Maybe they know something we don't?  


All Things Considered... is extemely passionate about Placenta Encapsulation so please do not hesistate to inquire if you have more questions or would like to be forwarded research material supporting it.  I was trained and am certified through International Placenta and Postpartum Association (IPPA), Biologix-Bloodborne Pathogens Certification and Servsafe Food Handlers.


The placenta is steamed with herbs, dehydrated, ground into a powder, and put into empty vegetarian capsules.  The average placenta makes between 100-200 capsules.
