Blue Moon Placenta Services
Placentophagy (placenta ingestion) is a natural process of postpartum mammals in the wild and is a centuries-old practice mostly used by the Chinese. These days, placentophagy is on the rise as more women become aware of its health benefits. These include the prevention or lessening of postpartum depression and baby blues, lowered stress levels, replenishment of iron levels and the Human Proclactin (HPL) hormone to help establish milk supply, among others. Let us help you reap the benefits of the amazing organ your body has made.
Placenta Encapsulation Specialists
Our team will act as a personal chef to families wishing to consume their placenta in pill or other forms. Each specialist has completed a hands‐on training, Food Handlers Safety and Blood Borne Pathogens Training and Testing Certifications. Placenta services can be performed at the clients’ home if requested. Otherwise, the specialist will prepare it at her home and deliver it promptly (usually 2‐3 days).

A La Carte
Capsules or Pills
Simply Dehydrated or the “Raw” Method - $225
The simply dehydrated or raw method preparation involves rinsing the placenta, dehydrating, grinding and encapsulating the powder into vegan capsules.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Method - $250
TCM placenta preparation is the same as simply dehydrated with an added step before dehydration. In this step, the placenta is lightly steamed with lemon, garlic, cayenne, and ginger.
Both capsule preparations yield approximately 150‐200 capsules depending on the placenta’s size and can include the cord preserved in a heart‐shape to keep.
Smoothie - $75
Let us prepare you a nourishing fruit smoothie with a small amount of placenta immediately after birth. Placenta smoothies are reported to quickly help you balance oxytocin and other hormone levels, therefore preventing excessive bleeding, and stress immediately after birth, and likely maintain hormone levels until your capsules are ready.
Tincture - $45
A placenta tincture is a concentrated alcohol solution that contains pieces of your placenta for wellness long into the future. Drops of tincture in your drink or under tongue can be used to alleviate future menstruation and menopause. If stored correctly, tinctures can last indefinitely and help you with future generations.
Salve or Balm - $45
Prepared using organic natural oils, herbs and placenta powder, this salve can be used for stretch marks, cesarean section scars, hemorrhoids, perineal tears, cracked nipples, eczema, sunburns, diaper rash and more.
Tree of Life Prints
As an add‐on to encapsulation services - $5 (2 prints)
Just the printing session - $30 (Up to 5 prints)
Using ink or food coloring (if placenta will be prepared for consumption) we will imprint your placenta to honor the “tree of life” that nurtured your baby as a beautiful keepsake. We also offer more natural color options such as turmeric powder.
Consumption of the placenta postpartum has been shown to:
Prevent or lessen postpartum depression and 'baby blues' (commonly experienced by 86% of women).
Lessen stress levels. The placenta contains Cortisone, the hormone that unlocks energy and combats stress.
Replenish iron from blood loss during birth and prevent postpartum anemia. Low iron can result in fatigue, lack of concentration and depressive symptoms.
Lend a consistent flow of the feel good 'Love' hormone, oxytocin, to stabilize hormones post birth, long after the birth euphoria ends.
Provide the HPL hormone to help establish early and healthy milk supply. In one study, 86% of the women given placenta reported increased milk supply within 4 days.
Replenish B vitamins and energy consumed during the labor and birth process.
Offer natural pain relief during the recovery period. Research has shown that ingesting placenta increases the effectiveness of opioids. The mother would need much less pain medication for the same relief.
Interferon in the placenta stimulates the immune system to fight off infections while the mother is healing.
Act as an anti-inflammatory due to prostaglandins contained within.
Lessen bleeding and promote faster healing due to urokinase inhibiting factor and factor XIII.
