The act of ingesting one's own placenta (placentophagy) has become more popular in western culture as word spreads and mothers are realizing how it can help them in their 4th trimester. Ingesting your placenta is a normal act for mammals and the most common way for humans to do this is to have your placenta encapsulated. (see article here) Some people find the thought of seeing or touching their placenta weird. Having someone else encapsulate your placenta allows you to get all the benefits through taking capsules that look like herbal supplements while ensuring that the process has been done in a safe manor fallowing blood borne pathogen and food safe guidelines. All placentas are dehydrated for 12-18 hours at 160* F to ensure that any potential bacteria has been destroyed. All placentas from Group B Strep positive clients (GBS) are put through a vinegar bath and steamed then dehydrated at 160* F to kill the bacteria which dies between 130-150*F (see article here).
Your safety and our encapsulator's safety is taken very seriously at Bloomington Family Wellness. The process can be done at our encapsulator's separate space, or in your home. In the encapsulator's space no more than 1 placenta is out to be prepared at a time to ensure there is no cross contamination or confusion. Contact us to discuss your preferences.

A healing salve balm is made from finely ground dehydrated placenta to create a highly potent healing agent created by infusing herbs, oils, bees wax, and shea butter, and placing it in a 4 oz metal tin. It can be used on almost any skin irritation such as rashes, c-section and other surgical scars, and perineal tears (once the stitches have dissolved).
