Depending on the method used, every placenta yields a different number of capsules. In general  you can expect to get between 100 – 180 capsules.

RAW METHOD: When a placenta is processed using the raw method, the placenta is sliced & dehydrated. Once dehydrated it is ground up and put into capsules

If you are more into raw foods, then this method is for you! There is less done to the placenta during the process and then it also yields a higher yield. So you’ll get more capsules using the raw method then you would using the TCM.

TCM (Traditional Chinese Method): When you choose the Traditional Chinese Method the placenta is steamed, sliced and then dehydrated. Once dehydrated it is ground up and put into capsules.

The placenta loses up to 35% of it’s mass during steaming (most of which is blood) so this method yields less capsules.

You can also choose half and half, for an additional $25.


While there are no evidence-based studies, as of yet, here are some of the benefits women have found:

  • Helps to stabilize your hormones
  • Replenishes depleted iron levels
  • Increases your energy levels
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Assists the uterus to return to its pre-pregnancy state
  • Reduces post-natal bleeding
  • Decrease in baby blues and postpartum depression
  • Increases your milk supply
  • Better sleep
  • Quicker healing


The placenta’s hormonal make-up is completely unique to the mother. No prescription, vitamin, or herbal supplement can do what one placenta pill can do! More information on encapsulation over here.

If you are using a doula from Central Alberta Doulas for your birth, then they also let the encapsulator know you are in labour, get the placenta ready and packaged up and arrange to get it to the encapsulator saving you and your partner the additional stress of having to do it yourself. Leaving you more time to focus on your baby! 

Would you like to add placenta infused chocolates to your package? We offer Bernard Callebaut chocolates in dark or milk chocolate. These  are not meant to replace your capsules, just to add a sweet treat and a little boost to your day!

One dozen chocolates $20

Not sure what you will do when your capsules are finished? We offer tinctures! Tinctures are a great addition to your package and will last indefinitely for future use, including menopause.

One 4oz bottle of tincture $15

“…all I have to say is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! I can tell a huge difference in my mood especially and pain when I take them.

I had a really traumatic labour and was not expecting a c-section, but it happened and we’re both safe so that’s all that matters in the end. I feel as if I’m recovering both mentally and physically than I’d have expected to. I will be recovering for 5 more weeks and I know my capsules will make me feel soo much better! ”

So glad I decided to encapsulate my placenta – I’ll be doing it with my future babies again and if you’re sitting on the fence about this, I highly recommend it!!!” – Jessica
