Many women report that encapsulating their placenta:

    • Connector.Connector.

      Helped them feel balanced.

    • Connector.Connector.

      Increased milk production.

    • Connector.Connector.

      Helped with the "baby blues".

    • Connector.Connector.

      Decreased post natal bleeding.

    • Connector.Connector.

      Reduced postpartum healing time.

    • Connector.Connector.

      Increased energy levels.



    I noticed more energy

    Taking the placenta pills I noticed more energy and a more stabilized mood after having my third that what I had experienced after my first. This was helpful as my physical recovery was harder than my first two. I would not hesitate to use Amber’s placenta services again if we have another child.”

    Experience


    • Over 60 placentas encapsulated
    • A biology background with lab experience.
    • Experience working with hospital staff

    I have been encapsulating since 2014, with over 60 placentas encapsulated in the Peace Region. There is always something we can learn which is why I enroll in continuing education and always look to increase my knowledge about placenta encapsulation and all things birth.

    When I started this journey and began offering placenta encapsulation, I worked with the unit lead of the Birthing Centre, to outline my needs as an encapsulator and hospital protocol to come to a standard agreement of how women could attain a timely release of their placentas.


    My mood wasn't so up and down.

    “I just overall felt way better! I noticed my mood wasn’t so up and down. My bleeding was fairly light which is a plus and it went away after 3 1/2 weeks.

    Want to know more about your preparation options?


    Traditional Method

     The placenta is lightly steamed as it is thought to add a warm energy to replenish and soothe the mother after the birth. (please note that I do not steam with any herbs and I do not include any herbs in your capsules, only placenta. This is a precaution for any unknown reactions or allergies, and will not prevent you from taking your placenta capsules)

    After preparing the placenta it is dehydrated, ground into powder, and encapsulated (put into capsules) to be taken by the mother.

     


    RAW Method

    With this method, your placenta is prepared in a raw state and is dehydrated at high temperature to kill any harmful bacteria, but is otherwise unprocessed. (The placenta must processed within 48 hours).

    After preparing the placenta it is dehydrated, ground into powder, and encapsulated (put into capsules) to be taken by the mother.


    Not sure which option to choose?
    Read more in my faq section or you can choose to have 1/2 of each method as a preparation option.


    Let’s personalize your package….

    Placenta Tincture ~ 40

    This is a great addition to your package and well appreciated when your capsules are gone. Although not as well known as encapsulation, the tincture is a wonderful option for long term use. A small portion of placenta is selected to steep in high quality, high proof alcohol for, creating a pure placenta tincture. Many women have used this for menopause, pms and times of stress or low energy. Great for an energy boost or quick pick me up.

    Placenta Salve ~ 40

    I create a placenta salve using all natural ingredients including a small amount of your own dried placenta. Placenta is know for its restorative and soothing properties and has been used for:

    • skin irritation
    • cesarean and surgical scars
    • perenial tears
    • general skin care

    Placenta Prints ~ 2 prints for 15

    A placenta print is a perfectly unique and beautiful 12×12 imprint of your placenta on high quality acid free watercolor paper. I include a hand-crafted label on the reverse side of the print, where I’ve left space for you to add baby’s name and birth information. Art fixative is also applied to the print for UV protection and fade resistance, although care should still be taken to avoid displaying in direct sunlight.

    You may choose flavored capsules to enhance the smell and taste of your capsules. Your choice of color and matching scent/flavor. The flavored capsules are gelatin based, Kosher and Halal certified. Please note that these capsules are not gluten free. Currently I have three flavors in stock:
