Placenta Encapsulation

Consuming your placenta after birth has a number of potential benefits including improved mood, increased milk production, and more balanced hormones. With Doulas of Des Moines, you can rest assured that your placenta will be processed with the highest quality and safety standards.

Our Postpartum Placenta Specialists hold current certification in bloodborne pathogens and adhere to strict safety and quality standards to protect your family (and our own). For your safety and convenience, we encapsulate the placenta in your home (or an alternative location of your choosing). This insures the placenta you receive back is—without question—your own and allows you to observe and ask questions about the encapsulation process if you wish. If you prefer to be less involved in the process, we are happy to be discreet and non-obtrusive so you will barely know we’re there.
