Placenta Encapsulation Services

Proudly serving Baltimore, Annapolis, and other regions throughout Maryland and DC.

Nourish your body and spirit with help from The Nurturing Root. Our placenta encapsulation services specialist will introduce you to the miraculous benefits of the placenta – the complex organ that nourishes your baby before birth, and continues to nurture you even after your little one is born. Having a baby is both joyous and overwhelming. Many suffer from postpartum hormone imbalances, resulting in emotions ranging from irritability and the so-called “baby blues” to more serious forms of clinical depression. Placenta encapsulation has been practiced for centuries as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, to treat these imbalances and to counteract fatigue and lactation issues postpartum.

With the success of her personal experience with placenta encapsulation services, The Nurturing Root became Carmen’s way of helping birthing parents triumph in one of life’s most rewarding, albeit difficult times.The Nurturing Root offers the following services throughout Maryland:

…but I loved having you there to chat with and explain to my Mom how awsome encapsulation is. We all appreciated your enthusiasm, energy and professionalism. Thank you!

I highly recommend Carmen’s services. She was highly professional, quick to respond to communication, and a warm, friendly presence in our home. Having my placenta encapsulated helped curb my crazy postpartum mood swings and I will definitely be calling Carmen for baby #2!


Carmen is amazing. She explained the process in detail and answered all of my questions. I had severe post-partum depression with my first pregnancy, and this time I had no depression at all. My recovery was wonderful, and I was able to enjoy my newborn daughter and my family. Thank you for this experience. I would highly recommend placenta encapsulation to any post-partum mother.
