Placenta Encapsulation


The reported benefits of placenta remedies are wide ranging, and we 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 to discuss your plans, and get more details. Here’s some basic information to help you decide if our service is right for you:

We will go on call for your placenta when you reach 38 weeks pregnant. When you go into labour we ask that someone calls us so that we can prep our equipment, and then later on, for them to give us a heads up about when they’ll be bringing it over.
As soon as possible following your birth please have someone deliver your awesome placenta to either Elle in Fallowfield or Sarah in Bury, depending on who is on call for your placenta that day. Whichever doula receives this incredible organ which you grew and birthed, will be glad to meet it, and she will treat it with the utmost respect. (The placenta drop off/collection job is a good one to give to someone who wants to be included and has been asking how they can help .)

She will rinse it, photograph it and send you the photos, prepare and 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 48 hours, your placenta will be prepared 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 overall to prepare it this way, but if consuming your placenta asap is important to you it’s important to us! (If it’s not important to you, or two collections is too much of a faff for you, we can also just do it as one batch.)
You are welcome to remove pieces of the placenta to enjoy in placenta smoothies before dropping it off. If you would like information or support with this please let us know.


The fee is £200, which can be paid by instalments of up to three months, with a deposit of £100 payable upon booking in.

Please note we are unable to collect or deliver placentas. To use this service you will need to be able to drop off your placenta to both Fallowfield or Bury and collect it in one or two batches. The first batch will be ready within around 24 hours (depending on the time of day you bring it), with the rest the next day or so, but the second batch is less time sensitive.

We will communicate with you about how to express to medical professionals you will be keeping your placenta, how to store it and transport it, progress of the encapsulation, and we’ll also send you guidelines on dosage.

Please contact us if you think you might be interested, or would like to find out more.
