Placenta Encapsulation 


Placenta Encapsulation in Baltimore, MD

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.

Placenta Encapsulation is the process of turning your baby’s placenta into capsules that will be consumed as a supplement. Placenta Encapsulation may benefit a postpartum parent in a number of ways.

Placenta encapsulation has been known to:

  • increase energy
  • aid in milk production
  • decrease postnatal bleeding
  • decrease incidence of iron deficiency
  • elevate mood by balancing hormone fluctuations
