MEET YOUR SPECIALIST
After the birth of my fourth child, and a rocky postpartum, I began studying placenta encapsulation. The placenta is a fascinating organ. The healing properties it has to offer for the postpartum period are numerous, and I was convinced that this was a wonderful way to start things off right.
My love of the birth community, and my passion for supporting new mothers led me to this amazing career path.
I live and work in Indianapolis, my home of 16 years. I love the city and the community here.
About Placenta Encapsulation:
So you are considering placenta encapsulation. Perhaps you are interested in preventing postpartum depression. Or maybe you're concerned about your milk supply. Whatever the reason, you probably have some questions about the process. Preparing for your placenta encapsulation begins by discusssing your plans with your birth attendant. If you are delivering in the hospital, talk to your care provider and let them know that you plan to take your placenta home. Depending on where you deliver, there may be release forms necessary to allow for this.
After you have:
•downloaded and read the service agreement

Your placenta will be picked up from the hospital. It is usually processed in my dedicated work space, although arrangements can be made to bring my equipment and process in your home if you choose.
Routinely I use a high yield encapsulation method in order to preserve all possible benefits, and return the highest number of capsules. This involves thoroughly rinsing the placenta, slicing very thin, and dehydrating at a high temperature. After the dehydration process, which can take as long as 24 hours, the desiccated placenta is completely ground, packed into capsules, and bottled.
Sanitation is rigorous, and complies with OSHA standards for handling blood borne pathogens. Stainless steel surfaces, food grade plastics, and disposables are used, including tray liners and cutting utensils.
Personal protection equipment is worn at all times while handling the placenta and capsules.
You will be contacted as soon as the capsules are complete, usually within 48-72 hours, to arrange for delivery.
Upon delivery, I will be available to address any questions or concerns you may have.
