Placenta Encapsulation

Those who have consumed their placentas after birth report numerous benefits, including increased milk supply, an improved recovery period, and reduced symptoms of post-partum depression.* For many, taking placenta pills is an essential ritual of post-birth self-care.

Using the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) method, I transform the placenta into pills for the birthing person’s consumption. This method of preparation retains some of the nutrients and hormones present in the placenta at the time of birth.

The fee for my placenta encapsulation service is $200, or $150 for current birth doula clients. This fee covers:

  • Pick-up of your placenta within 24 hours of birth
  • Processing of your placenta using the Traditional Chinese Medicine Method
  • Drop-off at your home within 24-48 hours of pick-up

Vegetarian/Vegan capsules available on request. All the capsules I use are Kosher and Halal certified, and gluten-free.

One or more placenta prints on watercolor paper can be added for $40.


I follow OSHA and local health department guidelines for the safe handling and disposal of human tissue in all stages of my process, and possess a valid Washington State Food Worker Card.

Service area: I am based in White Center/West Seattle, and prefer to work in Seattle and South King County. If you live outside of this area and feel strongly about working with me, please reach out. I may be able to come to you for an additional $25 travel fee.
