The Process

We use the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) method of placenta encapsulation. Learn more about our 12-step process below.

Step 1

I prepare the pot of water by putting fresh squeezed lemons, ginger and cayenne pepper into it. This is known to help with weight loss, energy, inflammation, migraines and healing.

Step 2

The remaining piece of the umbilical cord is cut from the placenta. The umbilical cord is washed and cleaned (this is set aside for umbilical cord art as a keepsake for the mom).

Step 3

The placenta is placed into a stainless steel strainer and washed thoroughly. (Note: the strainer has legs and sits up, off of the sink; The placenta never touches the sink.)

Step 4

The placenta is then placed into the steamer. I squeeze fresh lemons onto the placenta and sprinkle cayenne pepper onto it.

Step 5

The placenta is steamed for 30 minutes.

Step 6

The placenta is placed onto a glass cutting board, on top of a stainless steel counter top.

Step 7

The placenta is cut into strips and the strips are placed onto the dehydrator and dehydrated to the point where each piece can “snap” in half.

Step 8

The dehydrated strips are placed into a glass blender and crushed/blended into a dry powder.

Step 9

The empty capsules are counted out into a glass bowl. They are then placed into the capsule machine.

Step 10

The dry placenta powder is then poured into the empty capsules. Steps 9 and 10 are repeated until there is no placenta powder left.

Step 11

I put the placenta pills in the water bottle, and then in a labeled box/bag.

Step 12

All equipment and workspace is thoroughly sanitized.
