Placenta encapsulation is an ancient practice that is said to promote milk production in lactating mothers, promote 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 Encapsulation 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 provided by the Midwest Doulas team, education professionals, and other specially-selected service providers we have long-standing relationships with. No question is too small when choosing your support team, so don’t hesitate to contact us with yours!
