Placenta Encapsulation


The reported benefits of placenta remedies are wide ranging, and Elle can encapsulate your placenta to support your healing after your baby is born.


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

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

If you are considering placenta encapsulation please get in touch with us to discuss your needs, and further details. We include the following information to help you decide if our service is right for you.

As soon as possible following the birth please deliver your awesome placenta to Elle in Fallowfield. She will be very glad to receive this incredible organ you have grown and birthed, and she will treat it with the utmost respect.

She will rinse it, photograph it, prepare dehydrate it using the raw method, blend it, and encapsulate the powder into cellulose capsules ready for collection.

As it is said to be most beneficial to start consuming your placenta within the 48 hours following birth, Elle will prepare your placenta in two batches. This will ensure you can have access to capsules within those first two days while the rest of your placenta is encapsulated. No other encapsulators to our knowledge work to prioritise making capsules within this window. It is more time consuming to prepare it this way, but if consuming your placenta asap is important to you it’s important to us!
You are welcome to remove pieces of the placenta to enjoy in placenta smoothies before dropping it with Elle. If you would like support with that please let us know.


The fee is £200, which can be paid by instalments of up to three months, with a deposit of £75 payable upon booking in.
Please note Elle is unable to collect or deliver placentas. If you would like to use this service you will need to be able to drop off your placenta to Fallowfield and collect it in two batches. The first batch will be ready within around 24hrs (depending on the time of day you bring it), with the rest the next day or so.
Elle will communicate with you regarding the progress of the encapsulation, and also send you guidelines on dosage.
