Placenta Services

The placenta is an amazing organ that sustains life, and may also be able to benefit you after you give birth! This growing trend is helping many women during their postpartum period and beyond.

Placentophagia (ingestion of placenta) may possibly:

  • Stimulate uterine contractions
  • Slow postpartum hemorrhage
  • Replenish nutrients after birth
  • Curb postpartum depression
  • Increase your milk supply
  • Help your uterus return to pre-pregnancy size faster
  • Replenish depleted iron
  • Decrease fatigue
  • Decrease likelihood of insomnia or sleep disorders
  • Decrease pain tolerance
  • Ease menopausal hormone fluctuations

I am currently unable to provide placenta services. There is another wonderful placenta lady here in Portland – Raeben Nolan. I highly recommend contacting her if you are interested in placenta encapsulation, tinctures, art, and so on!


Check out my article about placenta medicine and rituals if you are interested in reading more, or would like ideas on how to honor your child’s placenta. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me:

    I’ve read up a bit on placenta encapsulation and I’m wondering if this will be a service you plan to offer next year? I’m interested in hearing more about it.

    I did this with my placenta after my son was born. I helped me so much to recover and keep PPD away. I only wish I had someone to do it for me at the time!
