Placenta encapsulation is an ancient practice that is said to promote milk production, more balanced hormone levels, and even prevent or decrease the intensity of postpartum depression.
Currently, the evidence on placenta encapsulation is anecdotal, yet compelling. Midwest Doulas offers placenta services as part of a comprehensive postpartum support package or as a stand-alone service. Choose from two methods of encapsulation: Traditional Chinese Method or raw placenta encapsulation. All services are performed by our resident APPA-certified placenta encapsulator and is available to all Midwest Doula clients in the greater Twin Cities area.
Complete range of placenta services to encapsulate, preserve, and celebrate your placenta. Each step is completed by our APPA-certified placenta encapsulator, so the process is free of cross-contamination. Simply keep your placenta frozen or refrigerated until we retrieve it from your place of birth (hospital, birth center, or home). We will carefully and respectfully dehydrate and encapsulate your placenta, yielding an average of 100 to 200 capsules.

“The Midwest Doulas team encapsulated my placenta for me, and they were so professional and great. I loved having these pills during postpartum time! They also provided me with much-needed lactation support during an incredibly difficult time, just a couple weeks after our baby was born. Midwest Doulas was so responsive, kind, understanding, and HELPFUL!”
