I offer encapsulation using the Raw Method. This is where the placenta is immediately prepared and dehydrated (without cooking or steaming) and then ground to powder and placed in capsules. A very strict hygiene and handling process is adhered to. TCM Method is also available on request.

This service is primarily for mothers birthing in the Macarthur and Liverpool regions including:

  • Campbelltown Hospital
  • The George Centre (private hospital in Gregory Hills)
  • Sydney Southwest Private Hospital (Liverpool)
  • Liverpool hospital
  • or birthing at home in the Macarthur area.

A travel fee is charged if you are birthing or live further than 30 minutes from my home in Mount Annan. If you are over 60 mins from my area, please contact me and I will refer you to a placenta encapsulation specialist closer to you. :)

Travel Fee: 

$60 if pick up OR delivery is 30-60 mins away

$100 if BOTH pick up and delivery is 30-60 mins away

This fee covers my travel time, petrol and tolls.

Please note:

TCM Method is recommended if the mother experiences an infection during the birth.

On some occasions, it is not possible to encapsulate the placenta. For example,

  • if the placenta is heavily stained with meconium
  • if the placenta has not been properly handled and stored after birth
  • if the mother has a blood borne virus such as Hep B, Hep C or HIV/AIDS

Placenta Smoothie $100

This is an add-on service where I come and visit you soon after the birth to create your smoothie in the birthing suite. A small piece of placenta is used and combined with fresh fruit such as strawberries and bananas. This is blended together with water to create a delicious smoothie that can help you to feel energised and refreshed. A completely new blender is used for each client, which you keep afterwards.
