Why Hire a professional Placenta Encapsulation Specialist (PES)?
I am a certified PBI Placenta Encapsulate Specialist. I adhere to standards for sanitation, and safe food handling. All equipment, if not disposable, are thoroughly sterilized between each use. All materials used meet food grade standards. I treat the placenta sacredly, and I will focus on honoring the work it has done to nourish your baby, while preparing it to continue its work nourishing you.
How are the placenta capsules prepared?
Your placenta will be prepared following the Traditional Chinese Method (TCM). This includes gentle handling of the placenta, cleansing in clean water, careful drainage of the blood vessels, steaming with spices, dehydration and powdering. Then your placenta will be encapsulated in vegetable gelatin capsules.
Is there any risk of cross contamination?
I encapsulate one placenta at a time, so there is no risk of cross contamination. I do not pick up a new placenta until the previous encapsulation has been completed and the capsules have been delivered. In the rare case that two clients deliver their babies on the same day, the latter client needs to wait for up to 24 hours until the previous placenta capsules have been delivered.
When should I have my placenta prepared?
The placenta preparation should take place as soon as possible after delivery, ideally within the first 72 hours. The first two weeks are the most important and effective time to start taking the placenta. In case that the placenta cannot be processed immediately, it can last in the freezer for up to 6 months.
Will hospital release my placenta?
Most hospitals in the local area are good about releasing the placenta. We suggest that you tell your doctor ahead of time that you plan to keep your placenta and write it in your birth plan. Also be sure to remind the nurse that you plan to take it home when you check in for delivery.
How should the placenta be stored?
Please ensure that your placenta is kept fresh. The placenta should be placed in an enclosed container, or in quality ziplock bags. It can remain at room temperature for 3-4 hours following the birth. After that it should be refrigerated or kept in a cooler with ice packs. If it is going to be more than 48 hours before the placenta can be prepared, it should be frozen.
How long does the encapsulation process take?
24 to 48 hours.
How many capsules will my placenta make?
A placenta will make between 80 to 150 capsules depending on the size of the placenta and gestation age. The average amount of capsules from a placenta delivered at 40 weeks gestation is around 120, using size "0" capsules.
How often do I take my placenta capsules?
Capsules can be taken 1-2 times, up to 6 pills a day during the first 6 weeks. Some can be saved for hormonal imbalances like when weaning baby off the breast. Placenta pills should be stored in the refrigerator for short time use. Leftover pills after a year can be frozen for later use in life, such as when you're experiencing fatigue, stress, depress or menopause. Capsules can last indefinitely in your freezer.
Is there any side effects with placenta encapsulation?
We cannot guarantee the results with placenta capsules or any other placenta remedy, because the capsules are made by 100% of your placenta. We highly recommend that you follow the care instructions given by your trained specialist. Storing your placenta capsules properly, avoiding TCM capsules when ill and not taking over the recommended dose will reduce your chances of experiencing any side effect. Very rarely, less than 2% of our clients have reported some side effects such as mild headaches, stomach cramping, and unexplained lack of milk production.
What if I have an epidural or a c-section?
Many of my clients have had epidurals and c-section. They benefit from the placenta capsules just as much.
What if I am Strep-B positive or have a maternal infection and need antibiotics?
With Strep-B, you might be given penicillin during your labor to prevent transmission of the infection to your baby. You are allowed to opt out of antibiotics if you wish and many mothers have safely done so. If you do choose antibiotics during labor, it is possible that there are some antibiotics remaining in your placenta, and therefore in your capsules. However, the antibiotics will not have an effect on the benefits of the placenta.
胎盘胶囊属于私人订制服务，我每次只接收和加工一个胎盘，所以不会存在交叉感染的风险。我的工作程序是递送完前一单的胎盘胶囊，才会领取下一位客户的胎盘。如果同一天有两名产妇生产，那么后者可能需要等待12-24小时。第一个胎盘制作完成后才会处理制作下一个胎盘。在处 理下一个胎盘前, 所有器具用品都会再一次彻底清洗消毒。虽然稍有不便，却为您免去交叉感染的后顾之忧。
在制作胶囊之前，胎盘的保鲜对于保全营养十分重要。生产后，请护士或家属尽快将胎盘置于无菌的封闭容器或优质ziplock可密封塑料袋中。胎盘在室温下不宜存放超过4小时，超时建议移至冰箱（4 °C）冷藏，或者放入便携式保冷箱（cooler）置于冰袋中间保存。产后若超过72小时，需要把胎盘置于冰箱冷冻室冰冻保存（-18 °C）。冰冻条件下，胎盘的保存期长达6个月。
建议每日口服1-3次。产后第一周，每日最多6粒。其后剂量递减，直至身体恢复到产前状况。您还可以选择把剩余的胶囊保存起来留待断奶，疲劳过度，情绪波动，甚至更年期服用。短期内胎盘胶囊需要置于冰箱冷藏室内保存（4 °C）。长期（超过1年）则需要将胶囊移至冰箱冷冻室保存（-18 °C）。
