Melbourne Placenta Encapsulation, Tincture and Blood Prints

You’ve prepared your house for your new arrival.

Your friends hosted your baby shower and spoilt you with gifts.

You feel ready and excited for the birth of your baby, but have you thought much about your postpartum transition?

Preparing for the early postpartum period ​(the fourth trimester) is a critical step in ensuring a smooth and enjoyable journey to parenthood. Your body has already supplied you with an essential element to your recovery – y​our placenta!

The placenta is a hugely complex and seriously fascinating organ. And Placentophagy (a practice that has increased in popularity in recent years) is the process of preparing the placenta for consumption in methods such as encapsulation. Women who consume their placenta report more stable moods, a reduction in symptoms of baby blues and postnatal depression, an increase in energy levels, an increase in milk supply, a reduction in postpartum vaginal bleeding and an overall sense of wellbeing.

And when it comes to the preparation of your placenta – you’ll want the best of the best handling such a precious organ. I am a qualified APPAC placenta arts specialist, trained and certified by the Association of Placenta Preparation Arts. I hold current bloodborne pathogens and food safety certificates, product liability, public liability and professional indemnity insurance – for your peace of mind.
