Shipping

In order to service mommies across the United States that don’t have a Mommy Made Encapsulation location in their city, we offer a super easy and affordable shipment option. For $300 plus tax, we make the process as streamlined as possible.

Once the shipping portion is paid, here what happens next:

STEP 1

We mail you a placenta collection/shipment kit that will have everything you need to ship us back your placenta. This will include:

  • A cardboard box to ship your placenta
  • An ice chest
  • A Whirl Pak bag
  • A small leak proof container
  • 2 ice packs
  • One large ziplock bag
  • A roll of tape
  • A zip tie
  • Prepaid overnight label (already on the cardboard box)

** Please note, it is never too early or too late to sign up and get your kit. If you are already past your due date, we have ways to accommodate you.

STEP 2

On the day you deliver your baby, bring: 1) The ice chest 2) The Whirl Pak bag 3) The leak proof container with you. You will give the Whirl Pak bag and the leak proof container to your nurse and tell her, “I am keeping my placenta and I want the placenta to be placed into the Whirl Pak bag and I want that put into the leak proof container.” Once you have delivered your baby, the nurse will have you sign a release form and will then give you your placenta (in the container). You will then put your placenta into the ice chest and keep it on ice (the hospital will provide ice) until you or someone with you is able to take it home.

STEP 3

When you are home, put your placenta into the freezer for a minimum of 24 hours. This will ensure that your placenta stays cold and preserves the freshness.

STEP 4

Shipping out your placenta:

  1. Take the ice packs and the container with your placenta in it, out of the freezer and place them into the ice chest.
  2. Zip tie the ice chest shut.
  3. Put the ice chest into the large ziplock bag (this will help catch the perspiration and keep the cardboard box dry).
  4. Place the ice chest into the cardboard shipping box.
  5. Tape it up.
  6. Take to the nearest UPS store.
STEP 5

Drop off your box at any UPS store on a MONDAY OR TUESDAY OR WEDNESDAY MORNING ONLY. This is the only way to ensure overnight shipment through UPS.

STEP 6

We will receive your package on the next day. We will encapsulate your placenta and then overnight your capsules back to you once they are completed. Learn more about this process.
