Based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the placenta is first steamed over organic lemon, ginger and chilli before being dehydrated, ground into fine powder and encapsulated. This method is reported by any mums, to elicit a gentle, calming and grounding response, in addition to the plethora of reported benefits of placenta consumption in all forms.
These include; reduced post-birth bleeding; quick and abundant milk supply; balancing hormonal peaks and dips; improved appearance of hair, skin and nails; reduced stress levels; baby blues and PND prevention, to name but a few.
The placenta is simply dehydrated in its raw form, before being ground into powder and encapsulated. This method is reported by mums to offer a particularly energising response, in addition to the myriad reported benefits of placenta consumption in all forms, as described in the previous section.
On a purely practical note, the simple method will generally yield a greater number of capsules than the steamed method.
The number of capsules you receive will depend on the size of your placenta. You can expect to get anywhere between 90 and 300 capsules.
Enjoy the best of both worlds with our 50/50 Simple/Steamed option. Half of your placenta will be prepared using the Simple method and half using the Steamed so you can pick and choose your capsules to suit your mood and energy levels.
The price difference reflects the fact that these two processes are carried out completely separately, in accordance with our strict food safety management system, to prevent any possibility of contamination between the steamed and raw pieces of placenta.
Raw placenta is known for its high content of stem cells and growth factors which heal damaged tissue and organs rapidly. Consuming your placenta in its raw form is the most natural and effective way to benefit from your placenta after birth.

It can be beneficial during times of transition, illness, stress, emotional upheaval or hormonal imbalance. Consider it your very own rescue remedy! It can also be used in place of steamed placenta capsules during periods of illness, which is why mums often order an essence alongside their steamed capsules.

You will receive two potencies: one for baby and one for you; each comes in tiny tablet form.
The umbilical cord: your connection to your baby duringpregnancy and your baby's lifeline. The umbilical cord is made up of 1 vein which carries blood, rich in oxygen and nutrients, from you to your baby and 2 arteries which return deoxygenated blood and waste products, such as carbon dioxide, from your baby back to the placenta. Your body is amazing!
To honour and treasure this incredible feat of nature, your umbilical cord can be shaped and dehydrated to create a truly unique keepsake: an everlasting symbol of the physical connection with your baby. Depending on the length of your cord - the average cord is around 50cm - it may be shaped in a heart, or into a word, such as LOVE.
You will receive a complimentary cord keepsake with your placenta capsules, presented in a pretty organza bag. However, if you prefer, your keepsake can be mounted and framed inside a beautiful box-frame, making the perfect gift.
