Why consume your placenta?
Rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, consuming the placenta after birth is a centuries old practice. It has been shown to regulate breast milk supply, increase maternal energy levels, and decrease the risk of mood disorders and anemia.

In the meantime, please ensure your placenta is kept well-chilled in the refrigerator, or packed with plenty of ice and stored in a chiller bag overnight.
How long will it take to encapsulate my placenta?
Depending on the size of your placenta, it will take between 4-5 days from when we receive your placenta to when it is fully processed and ready to be returned to you.
How many capsules will I get and how do I take them?
In general, each placenta yields between 100-200 capsules.
If you are struggling postpartum, you can take 3 capsules, 3 times a day for the first week. For weeks two and three, take 2 capsules, 3 times a day. Slowly taper down to 1-2 capsule, 3 times a day, or as needed.
These amounts are used as a guideline. If you find you need more support, you can increase your intake as needed.
How long can my placenta capsules be stored?
We recommend storing your capsules in a cool, dark cabinet, and consuming them within 6 months. If you intend to store them for a longer period of time, we advise putting them in the freezer. The capsules will degrade in potency over 1-2 years, so we don't recommend keeping them too long.
Should I still take my capsules if I am unwell?
You are advised to temporarily stop taking your capsules if you develop a fever, or signs of infection. If you continue taking the capsules, it could lead to a slower recovery. You may restart taking the capsules once you have gotten better. If you have a cold, take the capsules at your discretion. Some mothers find it helps them get better faster. Tune in and listen to your body!
I have an oversupply of breast milk. Should I stop taking my capsules?
If you have an oversupply of milk, never exceed 9 capsules in 24 hours. The extra hormones and proteins can cause this to be worse and lead to clogged ducts. Recurrent clogged ducts can even lead to mastitis. Never stop taking the capsules abruptly. The sudden decrease in the oxytocin that the placenta provides could spiral you into the baby blues. If necessary, always reduce the amount you ingest gradually over a few days.
Is it safe for my partner to consume my placenta capsules?
As the biological father of the baby, there is often no risks or complications for the partner as long as you are not positive for any STI's or infections. In fact, your partner may benefit from its stress relieving properties and help make adjusting to having a new baby and schedule easier. Your placenta does, after all, contain the ever-loving hormone oxytocin!
