Traditional Chinese Method
This method involves steaming the placenta prior to processing. This method is the most popular as it "yields" the most product, especially when in the form of placenta pills.
“San Diego Placenta Services wast fast, affordable, and they answered all of my questions about the process. I had so much energy even after a difficult c-section and I know my placenta pills helped in my recovery." Ashlee D.
“I wasn't sure if I wanted to encapsulate my placenta, but I had problems with milk production with my first child. I took a chance with my second and I'm so glad I did. Thank you San Diego Placenta Services!”
A placenta can also be processed "raw," which essentially means that it is never heated prior to the dehydration process.
Why Should I Do it?
The placenta is an amazing organ (the only disposable one in the body!) designed to grow and nurture a developing child. Studies have shown that consuming a placenta during the postpartum period can reduce the occurrence of postpartum depression, aid in the nutritional recovery process, milk production, and more.
