Encapsulation - Tinctures - Custom Herbal Blends

 

Offering 24-hour turn around placenta preparations for the city of Bend. Full Moon Placenta Preparations strive to continue the "mothering of the mother" through postpartum. Our specialists have received training for placenta preparations through Full Circle Placenta Specialists, competed OSHA training with Biologix Solutions and hold a food handling license through the state of Oregon.

Encapsulations

After processing your placenta with a light steam and a slow dehydration, it is ground into a fine powder. This powder is placed into small gel capsules. Each placenta is a different size and yields a different amount of pills, but on average you receive 100-200 pills. Dosage guidelines are outlined in regards to your individual pregnancy and birthing history.

Postpartum Herbal Blend Add-On

Before encapsulating your placenta, you have the option of having a custom blend of postpartum supportive herbs added. This will be based on your postpartum concerns and intake information.

Tincture

Many people desire to use their placenta preparations when their menstrual cycle returns. A small portion of the placenta is set aside and preserved in an alcohol base tincture. This preserves the placenta for longer term storage. 

Umbilical Keepsake

The umbilical cord is set in a simple spiral and dehydrated. It is kept in a small muslin bag. 

Sitz Bath Herbs

Specially prepared herbs aimed to support the healing of your bottom after vaginal delivery. With these herbs you may brew a tea for a shallow sitz bath, or even use them in a peri-bottle to rinse your perineum postpartum. Sanitary napkins can be soaked in the brew and frozen for a soothing cool pack as well.

By entering my name below, I understand and acknowledge that there is limited research in regards to placenta encapsulation and consumption. I also understand that my encapsulated placenta is not intended to prevent or treat any physical or mental diseases, ailments or symptoms and that I am choosing to consume my placenta for my own personal beliefs, whether it be spiritual or cultural. I understand that my placenta has been handled and encapsulated according to OHSA and Oregon State Food Safety and Handling standards, and has been cleaned, cooked, dehydrated and put into pill form in a sanitary and sterile work space. Upon receiving my placenta capsules, I waive any and all rights to hold her responsible for any undesired effect of consuming the capsules. I put full trust and acknowledgement that it is being handled in a sanitary and safe environment. I understand that upon receiving the pills, the encapsulator is no longer liable, including but not limited to any other person(s) ingesting my own placenta capsules. I am aware great effort is taken to pick-up and return placenta preparations in a 24-48hr window. I am aware that unforeseen incidents may arise delaying their return. I am aware that the preparer is a full-time midwife and may be at a birth when initially contacted for pick-up. I am aware that the preparer works with a fully trained back-up placenta specialist. In the event my placenta is sent to pathology, I am aware it will no longer be safe for consumption. In the event my provider or placenta specialist deems my placenta unsafe for consumption, I will receive a full refund. I am aware Placenta Preparations offers an alternative Herbal Postpartum Blend for $60 for those who may not consume their placenta, yet still seek supplemental support. I am aware that payment is due in full at the time of placenta pick-up. By entering my full name below, I acknowledge and agree to the above statement.
