Placenta Encapsulation

from £125

The reported benefits of placenta remedies post-birth are wide ranging, and Elle can encapsulate your placenta to help you heal after your baby is born.


Women who have used placenta remedies such as capsules and smoothies report many benefits:

  • balanced hormones
  • quicker recovery after birth
  • less bleeding after birth
  • increased energy levels
  • increased iron levels
  • helps the uterus to shrink back to its pre-pregnancy size more quickly
  • increased breast milk production

At the moment we are not encapsulating placentas. If this is something you want to do we can support you to do it yourself in your own home.

We collect your placenta from you after your birth, then Elle will prepare it, dehydrate it, blend it, encapsulate the powder, and deliver it as soon as possible. It is said to be most beneficial to start consuming your placenta within the 48 hours following birth, so Elle prepares your placenta in two batches. This will ensure you have some capsules within those first two days while the rest of your placenta is encapsulated. We can also prepare a placenta smoothie at your home to tide you over until your first batch of capsules is ready. All of this is included in the price.


The fee starts at £125, with the total depending on the size of capsules you choose, and whether or not we will already be at your birthplace as your doula.
