Placenta Encapsulation – Your placenta will be prepaired in the time honored tradition of the ancient Chinese. Your placenta will be steamed with warming herbs (lemon and ginger) before being dehydrated and encapsulated.
Placenta Tinctures – This is a great option for utilizing your placenta long after your pills are gone. Tinctures will keep indefinitely and are great to use for when your menstrual cycle returns and may lessen the effects of PMS. It might also be a good substitute for hormone replacement as menopause starts.
The placenta services offered via Lancaster Doulas are top notch. Every question I could have thought of was answered either via my initial consult or within hours of sending an email. It was very easy to get in touch with a live human via phone as well, something so special these days. I feel energized and even taking my capsules each day. I will recommend Lancaster Doulas to all of my friends and family members. Thank you again to the whole staff!
