The Powerful Placenta
I encapsulated my sons placenta with the help of my doula before professional placenta services were widespread. In 2007 I made the (then unconventional) choice to consume my own placenta because I was worried about suffering with postnatal depression. I’d had depression in the past and my mother had bad PND after having me and I didn’t want that tainting my and my sons early experience of motherhood.
In 2010 I became one of the first individuals to professionally train in placenta encapsulation with IPEN The Placenta Network and have since worked with hundreds of placentas.
For detailed information on the benefits of consuming your placenta after birth and all the remedies you can make in their individual benefits, the most comprehensive information on the web can be found at
I have tons of milk now and am now finally managing to express more than 1oz so thank you very much!Sarah
My Service to You
I can either encapsulate your placenta in your home or in my dedicated placenta workshop.
My service involves collecting your placenta from either your home or hospital, making up your remedies, then delivering them back to you a day or two later. They will either arrive via royal mail special delivery or i’ll drop them off by hand if you’re local to me.
Alternatively you get £50 off the price of an encapsulation if you (ie. your birth partner) delivers your placenta to my home in Peckham Rye.
For collection, please note I only work in SE and Central London and parts of North Kent. ie. I pick up from Kings, St T’s, UCLH, The Portland, Lewisham, Darenth Valley, PRU – Orpington, QE Woolwich and all the home address in between.
I work to food safety standards and have a I have a HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) system in place.
I hold a certificate in Food Hygiene for Manufacturers Level 2 Standard – City & Guilds and a UK Blood-born Pathogens-Infection Control Certificate.
This is me at work encapsulating a placenta for an artist and new mother of twins.
If you would like your placenta encapsulated please first download the info pack. This will explain the process in detail from the birth of your placenta to the delivery of your capsules and all the different remedies available.
