Placenta Encapsulation in your home!

You're looking into Placenta Encapsulation to help benefit your postpartum recovery, excellent, now what are the next steps? As you near the end of your pregnancy, it is important to think about your postpartum plan, because that time period is a big transition and it is so important that you have support during that time.

  • Step one is to inquire with Virginia is for Doulas and we will match you with an exceptionally trained Postpartum Placenta Specialist. Our owner, Tiffany will spend some time on the phone or by email seeing what your main concerns are for your postpartum recovery. Tiffany will go over the process with you, when you contact your encapsulator, what the transport kit includes and what to do with it, what Day 1 and Day 2 will look like, and she will answer any questions that you have.
  • Next, return the contract and payment to the office in Winchester, VA.
  • Once that is received your encapsulator will reach out to you and introduce herself and give you a little more information on what to expect when baby arrives and for Day 1 and Day 2 of encapsulation.
  • Baby arrives: have your partner or a family member transport the placenta, in the supplied transport kit, to your home and put it in the fridge within a few hours. During day time hours, call your encapsulator to schedule Day 1.
  • Day 1 can be scheduled when you are home so you can enjoy the benefits and knowledge of your encapsulator OR it can be scheduled when you are not home if you do not wish to be around for the process.
  • Day 2 happens about 14-16 hours after Day 1. While your postpartum placenta specialist is there she is a wealth of knowledge just for you. You can sit in the comfort of your own home and talk to her about breastfeeding, postpartum recovery, normal baby cues and sleep, or your emotional adjustment to motherhood. She is there for you. She will leave you with suggested usage guidelines and be available for the next few weeks for questions.
