The placenta, is a very special organ. It is vital for your baby, but it is also very good for you. Did you know that your placenta is full of valuable nutrients and hormones?
Its consumption can have a lot of important benefits.
- less pain after delivery
- the prevention of postpartum depression
- less bleeding after delivery
- helping with breastfeeding
- a quick recovery after childbirth
- more energy
- replenishing any blood and iron deficiencies, vitamins and nutrients
- the right hormonal support for you and your baby in the first months after delivery
- In addition, having a tangible memory of your placenta after birth can be valuable. For example in the form of a print, which sometimes reminds you of the period that your baby grew inside you after the special period of pregnancy and birth.

I can encapsulate your placenta for you after delivery. You can take the capsules, containing pieces of raw or steamed placenta. I can turn it into a long-lasting tincture by soaking a small part of your placenta in alcohol. Or I can make it into a balm that is not only healing for your skin, but also for your baby’s. But you can also consume the placenta by making it into a smoothie, for example.
By preparing the raw placenta, nutrients and hormones are better preserved. The pills made from the raw placenta can give you a greater energy boost than the steamed placenta capsules. When using these capsules it is sometimes even necessary to slow yourself down a bit. Women who are hormone sensitive or have a history of anxiety, depression, mood swings or insomnia may overreact to raw capsules. In such cases, this method is not safe.
Capsules prepared by the steam method make it easier to absorb iron from the placenta. Steamed placenta capsules also act as an elixir of life, heating and helping the uterus heal.
I put a small part of the raw placenta on alcohol for a period of at least six weeks. Then I remove the remains of the placenta and what remains is a tincture, which you can keep for a long time. For example, you can take the tincture during periods of illness or stress to boost your immune system. Or with hormonal imbalance, such as with PMS or menopause. And dissolved in water, you can use the tincture as a homeopathic medicine to protect your baby from illness.
A placenta smoothie will quickly give you the energy you need to recover from childbirth. I prepare this power boost by mixing a piece of your placenta with, for example, red fruit, coconut milk / yogurt or banana.
By adding organic beeswax and natural oils to the dried placenta, I make placenta balm. You can use it for wound healing after a caesarean section (apply when the wound is closed), for a perineal scar (apply when stitches are removed), cracked nipples, dry skin, eczema and diaper rash.
To have a lasting memory of the organ that connected you and your baby, I can make a print on paper of your placenta. I can also dry the umbilical cord to make it a lasting memory.
I ask you to seek as much information as possible about placenta consumption. I have done several studies including IPPA and read studies. I assure you great results but it’s all about your placenta and your body. We will discuss your wishes and the ins and out in advance. Even if I am not your Doela I can prepare your placenta.
