Q: Can my placenta still be encapsulated if I have a medicated birth or c section?
A: The answer to both of these is Yes. Medications that are used in labor break down quickly so that there are no lasting affects to the placenta. Be sure that your birthing team knows that you are planning to take your placenta, especially in the case of a c section, so that there is care taken to not contaminate the placenta and to have it put on ice as quickly as possible following its delivery.
Q: When is it unsafe to have your placenta encapsulated?
A: In the case of uterine infection during labor your placenta will need to be sent to pathology and would be unsafe for encapsulation. Fever during labor signifies possible infection but many care providers take a case by case approach to fever in labor to determine if they believe it is infection or other cause and this should be discussed with your provider in case of fever. If your provider believes infection may be the cause and wishes to send to pathology for testing you can request that they send a piece of the placenta and allow you to hold the remainder until results are known. If results come back saying there is infection you may choose to have a print created, bury your placenta, have a piece saved for a keepsake, or disposed of. If infection is not the cause and the placenta has been kept on ice or in a refrigerator for no longer than three days it is still safe to continue with the encapsulation process at that time. If it will be longer than three days for results we request that you place the placenta in the freezer until results are known.
For the safety of ourselves or other clients we cannot encapsulate a placenta if mom has HIV or Hep A, B, or C. Some believe it is still safe for the mother to consume her placenta even if she is positive for any of these because she is already carrying it and she could choose to encapsulate herself.
Q: Can I encapsulate my placenta if I test positive for Strep B, GBS?
A: Yes, you can still have your placenta encapsulated using Traditional Chinese Method of encapsulation because this method steams the placenta to 160 degrees before dehydrating. A mothers tincture can still be made for you using the powder after the placenta has been completely processed.
Q: Can I encapsulate if there is meconium present at birth?
A: Yes, when meconium is present at time of birth this does not affect the safety of the placenta. I will need to know that there was meconium so that I can do a pre wash and soak of the placenta before beginning the encapsulation process.
Q: Can I have a lotus birth and still encapsulate?
A: It is best for the placenta to be placed on ice within two hours of birth if encapsulation is desired. A partial lotus birth can still be attained and the cord can be separated by cutting or burning, depending on the wishes of the parents.
Q: Can I bank cord blood and encapsulate?
A: Yes, If you wanted to bank your babies cord blood and or tissue the cord blood would be drained by your provider into the kit you have provided them. They typically also remove the cord and a piece of the placenta tissue surrounding the cord insertion point and the rest of the placenta can be placed into the ziplock bags and put on ice in the cooler to be encapsulated. Prints typically do not work well in these cases since so much of the placenta is missing and cord keepsake is of course not an option but the pills, tinctures, smoothie drops, and salves can still be created for you.
Q: My care provider says my placenta must go to pathology for testing. Can I still encapsulate?
A: If there are complications during the delivery or immediately after the birth sometimes the provider will want to have the placenta tested. If the placenta goes to pathology, ask if you can have 4 inches of the cord. Place that in the ziploc bags with ice on top. We will then use that cord piece to make a beautiful keepsake jewelry and give you a voucher for $150 to be used for more jewelry or to be gifted to someone else.
Q: What if I am on the fence about encapsulation at the time of birth and have not secured an encapsulation specialist?
A: Most encapsulation specialists can take last minute clients. As long as your placenta has been cared for properly, placed on ice or in a fridge or freezer within two hours of delivery, it can still be encapsulated. If you are still on the fence and have not yet made a decision it is always better to take your placenta home and place it in your freezer. Your placenta can be encapsulated for several months following birth if it was handled properly. You cannot of course get it back once it has been disposed of. If you are on the fence I would love to chat with you and answer any questions that you might have.
Q: What happens if I decide to not encapsulate my placenta after hiring you?
A: If you decide to not encapsulate before 36 weeks, we will refund you your payment minus the $50 non-refundable deposit. If you decide after your birth, there will not be a refund. If your placenta can not be encapsulated due to being sent to pathology, we will make a sterling silver keepsake pendant with the cord or breastmilk jewelry. You will also receive a $150 voucher to be used for more jewelry or you can gift the voucher to another mom.
Anna was awesome! I didn’t think I’d get to have my placenta encapsulated and she’s helped make that possible for me! I’ve been more than overjoyed with her services, her kindness, and her helpfulness. She was very informative and made sure I understood the process and was very timely with the encapsulation. Thanks, Anna!
“My placenta encapsulation experience with Anna was amazing! Anna exceeded all my expectations. She was very quick to respond anytime I had a question before and after my encapsulation. I highly recommend Anna and plan to use her again during any future pregnancies.” -Tiffany
Amazing overall experience! This was my first placenta encapsulation and third child. My recovery and experience has been a much easier transition this time compared to my second birth and postpartum. I struggled with mild depression and recovery in the past and this time has been much different and very uplifting. Anna was prompt, very accommodating, nurturing, and very professional in the delivery of her services; a joy to work with in this experience. She will be my first and top, maybe my only recommendation in placenta encapsulation in this region.
I could not be any more please with the services provided. She came to the hospital the same night our baby was born AND returned the capsules within 24 hours. Not to mention she went out of her way to inform me of the process and answer any and all questions that I had. I would recommend this to all of my friends expecting children. Thank you so much again!
This is the second time I have encapsulated and I have had a great experience both times. I totally recommend it and Anna is amazing and makes the whole process easy.
I met a few people that could do the placenta encapsulation but Anna took the extra time to truly explain how the process works and what the benefits were. I really appreciated that since I had a lot of questions. She was very communicative with me throughout the process. I was most interested in the encapsulation for anxiety, breast milk supply and most importantly, postpartum depression. After a few days, she continued to check on me and troubleshoot some things with me. I felt very taken care of and definitely recommend Anna and placenta encapsulation!
I chose Ana because of all of the positive feedback that I read. I have been very impressed. Not only were her services amazing but she is still emailing me and helping me though my postpartum journey. She is just an amazing person! Highly recommended and I will use her services with future pregnancies!
I would recommend your services to anyone. When I was first trying to decide if I wanted to have my placenta encapsulated, you answered all of the questions that I had, and did so thoroughly/promptly. You were quick to pick up my placenta from the hospital and quick to deliver the capsules to me. You were very kind and even checked up on me a couple of times postpartum. If everyone was as kind as you, the world would be a much better place. I appreciate you and your services and hope to work with you again in the future!
I was very skeptical of the concept of getting my placenta encapsulated and after some research, I still wasn’t sure. Last minute, I found Anna Morgan online and was very glad I went with my decision to do it. Anna was very reassuring and informative and helped me feel as though I had made the right informed decision.
Since I found Anna late, I got to experience the difference of postpartum for over a week without ingesting the placenta encapsulation and having them. It truly is night and day. Those 9 days were exceedingly difficult, but very soon after with the pills, everything truly leveled out and made life much easier.
Whenever I get the chance, I have recommended Anna’s services to anyone who may need them.
A word from Dad:
Had heard of placenta consumption before but never encapsulation, I was exceptionally curious when I heard this was the option my partner had chosen. I was very impressed with the warm, professional service we received; all of our questions were answered and we felt very comfortable with Anna Morgan. My feelings of encapsulation have changed, it is a wonderful option that has helped my partner emotionally which makes life at home easy and allows us to focus on our beautiful new addition. I would definitely recommend Enshira to a friend. Cassie Y
Anna was quick to respond when I contacted her about services. She answered all my questions and was very personable. I was impressed with how convenient she made the entire process with little extras like the cooler kit I was able to just put in my hospital bag and her “in-hospital pick up”. My pills were ready before I was even home! I had done encapsulation before but the process with Anna was so much easier and I saw better results this time, possibly because I had them so quickly and could start taking them so much sooner. Thanks Anna for such a pleasant experience!
