As your certified Placenta Specialist I will meet with you during your pregnancy at least once or twice to come up with a personalized plan with your wishes for you and your baby's beautiful placenta. I go the extra mile and take extra steps to ensure sanitary conditions as well as professionally package and seal all contents delivered to you. During the process I take detailed notes and keep record of weights for the future if you end up with any curosities or unanswered questions. I believe that encapsulation is necessary for a positive postpartum period and is part of the natural birthing process. There are many links on my Social links and research page, and a placenta encapsulation faq on my services page if you're looking for more information. It is an honor to be trusted with such a sacred practice by you and your family, thank you for your interest!
Services listed below do not include pick up and drop off of placenta. Packages below include client drop off of placenta and specialist mail completed package to client.
Please note that I am happy to pick up and drop off the placenta and packages upon request.
I wanted to have an option available to everyone, including those who would like to save money on encapsulation packages and travel fees. A travel fee will apply for specialist pick up and/or drop off of placenta and package. You may also have the specialist pick up the placenta and mail the completed package.

Non-package services include:
Placenta Encapsulation: Raw, TCM, or heated. Added herbs or original. Please see the faq page for more details on the methods of encapsulation I provide. This is encapsulation only, no extras. See below for package options. $150.
Placenta Print: A beautiful watercolor paper keepsake included in all packages, unless you request one not be made. You also have the option having it on a canvas board or laminated. I can do them stained naturally with blood or colorfully stained with food grade icing dye. Upon request and for an additional cost, I will stain naturally with a food of your choice depending on color desired. For more photos check out Gaia Care on Facebook. $15
Umbilical cord keepsake: Your baby's cord is dried into any desired shape, this is also included in my basic encapsulation package. This keepsake can also be denied and will be instead added to the capsules. $5
Umbilical Cord Dream Catcher: A special keepsake in which you and your baby's bad dreams should perish. For more information on the origin of the idea, or how to prepare for hanging and blessing the dream catcher, please connect with me. I can also provide you information on the origins of preparing the dream catcher for hanging and blessing. $15.
Placenta Tincture-Gluten Free: The four ounce bottle will default to the method of encapsulation you choose unless otherwise planned with me. The benefits of a tincture are slightly different than encapsulation as the tincture lasts for many years, the capsules loose effectiveness after two years. Also, the tincture can be used for mama or baby. It can balance hormonal fluctuations such as puberty or most specifically during menopause (which has many of the same hormonal reactions as birth and postpartum), soothe indigestion or colic, decrease insomnia, ease anxiety, can relieve teething pain, aids in trauma, transition, or distress (such as the first day of school, daycare, etc for mama and baby), and help during childhood illness (cough, fever, rash). If you are loving your capsules and would like to purchase a tincture in the future, you have that option as well, and just need to save at least 5 capsules for me to do so. $25.
Extra placenta related services include:
Berry Flavored Capsules-Pretty purple berry capsules are great for mamas who are a little iffy about consuming their placenta-this makes it more like taking a multivitamin with a berry taste and a pretty purple visual. It's also great to have a berry burp! Anyone who's taken DHA or fish oils knows that supplement burps can be quite unpleasant. $25
Placenta mini cookbook- If you choose to only encapsulate a portion of your placenta or keep the infusion from steaming, I can provide you with this mini cook book. It includes smoothie recipes if you choose to freeze a few small raw pieces of placenta, and also includes bone broth recipe. $5
Placenta body and stretch mark/scar balm: (basic-all purpose, black-drawing salve, or itchy-allergic reactions, hives, rashes, etc)–herbal or essential oil option here as well as and delivered in a four ounce jar. Please connect with me for more information if you are interested in this service. The details are minimal so that we can choose the best method for you and your specific needs. $25
