Based in ancient practices, consuming the placenta can help aid in milk production, postpartum recovery, and reduce the risk of postpartum mood disorders.


How Does It Work?

Our trained and professional Placenta Encapsulation Specialists are Blood-Borne Pathogen Certified, and will:

  • Provide you with instructions on the safe storage and transport of your placenta after birth.

  • Encapsulate in the comfort of your home over the course of 2 days, using food grade equipment.

  • Steam and dehydrate your placenta at a food-safe temperature to kill bacteria.

  • Follow strict safety standards, and provide you with a refund, less a deposit, in the event that placenta encapsulation is contraindicated in your particular circumstance.

Although Placenta Encapsulation hasn't been widely studied (yet), many families are still looking to encapsulate their placenta for some of the anecdotal benefits it may provide them after birth. For these families, we provide the highest quality and standards available for Placenta Encapsulation, for your peace-of-mind.

Standard Placenta Encapsulation: $350

Placenta Tincture Add-On: $50


I had placenta encapsulation done with Magen and had a great experience. Magen was very knowledgeable about the process; she came to my home and was very professional, sterilizing everything and cleaning up afterwards. She was also really personable and kind, allowing me to share my birth story with her and even offering to do my dishes! I’ve been very happy with my experience and how the encapsulation pills have helped with my post-partum recovery. If you have any questions about the process I highly recommend contacting Tender Beginnings. They’re very responsive and have followed up with me every step of the way.
