Placenta encapsulation is the process of preparing the mother's placenta by dehydrating, powdering and encapsulating it for the mother to ingest. The purpose of ingestion is to reintroduce hormones, protein, minerals such as iron and amino acids and other key nutrients to the mother’s body following labor and birth. 

Placental Encapsulation has been reported by mother's to:
 

• restore physical and emotional balance

• prevent or lessens the "baby blues" and postpartum depression

• increase breast-milk production

• quicken healing & bleeding time

• natural pain relief

• increases energy levels

• provide an overall feeling of well-being.
