Placenta Encapsulation around Albany/Saratoga

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm expecting baby #2 beginning of August and am very interested in placenta encapsulation. However, I KNOW I cannot do it myself. And DH has already said no way. So I'm interested in having someone do it for me. I found an encapsulation website but the nearest "certified" person was in CT.

Does anyone in the area do this? I'm in Saratoga but delivering in Troy.

Hi Colleen,

I'm not in your area, but I just wanted to give you the vote of confidence that you can TOTALLY do it yourself! I didn't think that I "had it in me" either, but it really was pretty simple and hardly disgusting. If you can prepare meat, you can do this!

If you want some tips, feel free to PM me!

I can't prepare meat! And I hadn't even eaten any for years until 3 years ago. My husband has to prepare the chicken (which is all I'll eat). Creeps me out.

Ha yea, I'm around here, sometimes I hide out. I'll help you prepare your placenta! I've never done it before, but I've read lots about it. I also posted it onto the Capital Region Doulas Board to see if anyone knows of someone!
