Placenta Remedies

Nature's script for a happy, healthy postpartum!

For thousands of years, midwives and Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners have revered the placenta as a powerful source of rejuvenating medicine. Many mothers worldwide benefit from its healing properties, and honour the placenta in ceremony for sustaining the life of the child in the womb. More and more women in our culture are embracing the time-tested wisdom of placental remedies, and are rediscovering how these remedies can transform their postpartum experience

I provide the following Placenta Services to families all across Nova Scotia. You may choose just the powder/capsules, or add any additional remedies or keepsakes that you wish. The tincture and salve use only about one day's worth of powder each, so choosing these additional remedies does not significantly decrease the number of capsules you will receive. Repeat clients save 20% on placenta services. Prices do not include HST.

Placenta Remedies
  • Placenta Encapsulation $200. Placenta encapsulation is the process of carefully preparing your placenta to create placenta pills/capsules. This is a very popular placenta remedy, as encapsulation provides a convenient, tasteless, and palatable mode of consumption.

  • Placenta Tincture Preparation $40. Placenta tinctures can be used after capsules pills are gone, and last a lifetime. The tincture can also be used to make a placenta essence as well as a homeopathic remedy (consult your homeopathic practitioner). Your tincture takes 6 weeks to complete.

  • Placenta & herb-infused salve $30. Placenta has been a key ingredient in healing and beauty creams and salves for many years due to its skin restorative qualities. I prepare your soothing salve using nourishing oils infused with healing herbs and a small amount of your placenta powder.

Placenta Keepsakes
  • Placenta Prints $30. The placenta’s veins, arteries, and the cord create a beautiful image of a tree; in fact the placenta is considered the Tree of Life by many cultures around the world. I capture the beauty of the placenta through artistic prints. Prints are made on heavy acid-free paper, using the natural blood or pigments as the printing medium. This produces a stunning image of the placenta, suitable for framing or treasuring in an album.

  • Cord Keepsake (complimentary with other services if desired). The umbilical cord was the physical link between mother and baby during pregnancy, and many parents want to honour this link with a cord keepsake. I prepare the cord and preserve it in a heart, infinity symbol, or spiral shape. Some parents save the cord in a keepsake box or album. Some parents choose to bury the cord in ceremony, often under a special plant or tree, with a wish for the child to always return home, and remain grounded throughout life.
