Placenta Encapsulation is the process of transforming a mother’s placenta into capsules that are ingested throughout the postpartum period. Placenta capsules or ‘pills’ are traditionally taken by the mother immediately after birth. Depending on the size, a placenta can yield anywhere between 75 and 200 capsules.
Mothers globally have reported a variety of health and wellbeing benefits during and after taking placenta capsules: from staving off postnatal depression, to a daily energy boost. Celebrity mums like Kim & Kourtney Kardashian and Coleen Rooney had their own placentas transformed into pills, and are all advocates of placenta encapsulation.
