Many people are turning to placenta encapsulation to improve their chances of having a smoother postpartum period. At Two Hands Birth Services, placenta services are provided by a trained placenta specialist. A skilled professional trained to safely transform your placenta into capsules you can consume, just like a daily multi-vitamin, and is also an expert in supporting postpartum mothers and newborns.
Some of the things the placenta can help with:
Preventing and lessening the risk of postpartum depression or ‘baby blues’
Replenishing your iron from blood loss during birth and to prevent postpartum anemia
Lending you a consistent flow of oxytocin long after your birth euphoria ends
Providing the HPL hormone to help establish early and healthy milk supply
To stabilize your ever changing hormones post birth
To replenish your B vitamins and energy that were used during the labor and birthing process
Protection from infection and bleeding due to retained placenta tissue or membranes
Offer natural pain relief from the labor and birth of the baby
Our placenta specialist maintains the highest standards for the safe handling of your placenta, including certification in OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens and New Jersey Food Handlers Program. Our placenta specialist is also trained by International Placenta & Postpartum Association (IPPA) and in the process of certification.
The basic placenta service package includes, a free consultation, your Capsules, a Placenta Print, anumbilical Cord Keepsake (keepsake provided when possible and if desired). You will also receive a postpartum visit or call.*
Two Hands Birth Services also offers long-lasting placenta tinctures and healing herbal salves as an add-on to encapsulation.
Placenta tinctures are long-lasting solutions made by infusing your dehydrated and ground placenta in alcohol over a number of weeks. While you'll consume all your placenta capsules in the immediate weeks and months following your birth, a tincture will last for many months and even years. People choosing to have a placenta tincture made use it at times of stress or change (like the return of your cycle, weaning from breastfeeding, and even menopause). Placenta Tincture $35
Placenta Salves are an herbal salve infused with your placenta. A special selection of herbs are combined with some of your dehydrated placenta powder and infused in a blend of oils. The oil is then strained of the herbs and placenta powder, leaving you a healing salve that can be used topically on most any skin irritation - including surgical incisions or your recovering perineum. Placenta Salve $50
* The basic placenta package includes pick-up of your placenta from your birthing location and drop off of your completed capsules to your home. If you are located outside of our 30 mile service area there will be an additional charge of $20. Please contact us for more information.
