We offer 3 options of encapsulation Basic, Traditional, and Both...
Basic Investment: $250, attending a prenatal meet and greet, and having a postpartum conversation about your capsules.
The Basic method of preparation skips the heating process altogether, by not steaming the placenta. It is believed by not steaming the placenta it is preserving more of the essential nutrients, and not degrade the hormone and nutritional value. Using this option provides a burst of energy upfront, and great hormone boost. It is very energizing which might be exactly what your postpartum concern so it meets your needs well, and some find it leaves them feel more anxious.
This method tends to yield more than the Traditional method as it is not steamed first before encapsulation. Depending on capsule size 0 or 00 and size of the placenta, yield is generally from 90 -190.
The Basic method is dehydrated at the highest temperature, 160°, for 4 hours before being drop down 120° for 20 hours.
Traditional Investment: $270, attending a prenatal meet and greet, and having a postpartum conversation about your capsules.
The Traditional method of preparation involves gently heating the placenta first with steam and optional fresh organic ginger in the water, then dehydrating the placenta before it is put into capsules.
Using this preparation is thought to bring out the placenta's healing and longer lasting tonifying properties. This method is thought to be best when working with a history of depression or postpartum depression.
This method tends to yield fewer capsules than the Basic method as it is steamed first before encapsulation. Depending on capsule size 0 or 00 and size of the placenta, yield is generally from 70 -150. This method is heated at the highest temperature, 160°, for two hours before being dropped down to 125°for 22 hours. Both Investment: $300, attending prenatal meet and greet, and having a postpartum conversation about your capsules.
Many mothers enjoy having both types of encapsulation, so we do half Traditional and half Basic. They enjoy using the Traditional for when they first start taking their capsules to have that more consistent hormone stabilization and the Basic for the more energetic properties when they are ready to start adding more into their day. A wonderful option brought to you by the amazing women we have served the last few years. We call this “Both” because it is not a true half and half as the everything is heated at highest temperature, 160°, for 4 hours before being dropped down 120° for 20 hours.
Depending on capsule size 0 or 00 and size of the placenta, yield is generally from 70 -180.
