The placenta is the only organ that the human body creates and then releases once its purpose has been fulfilled. This organ acts as baby’s lungs, kidneys, G.I., and it provides an immunological barrier that protects your baby in the womb.
Placentophagy is the practice of consuming your placenta after birth. At Birth Roots, we honor placentas and want to give you the space to do the same. Some honor their placenta through placentophagy and we’re here to aid you in this experience, whether that be raw consumption, capsules, or tinctures.
When you’re ready to book your encapsulation, send us a message and we’ll walk you through the next steps.
Once born, a Birth Roots Placenta Encapsulation Specialist will retrieve your placenta and return it within 48 hours, encapsulated.
