PlacentaEcapTO

I found this and though it is an old thread I do Placenta Encapsulation in Toronto for those who do not wish to do it themselves.  And if you are out of my area I can even send you a kit to DIY with Instructions... 

 

Cheers,
Viviana Doula and Encapsulation Specialist.

brogansmomma I know this is an old thread...

I hunted around online and locally and ended up buying an encapsulator from eBay and caps from iHerb and doing it myself with my dehydrator. It was vastly cheaper and not as gross as I'd expected since my midwife prepped the placenta so all I had to do was rinse it and dry it.

I just found this service in Toronto - might be close enough to Ottawa or other southern Ontario towns

This link can help you find independent encapsulators around North America.

A friend of mine dried hers in a food dehydrator, and purchased cheap gel capsul vitamins from the dollar store and emptied the capsuls, and filled them with the dried/powedered placenta. You can purchase empty gel caps at health food stores and online, but this method was actually a lot cheaper.

Michelle @ http://www.thedivinechild.ca/Site/The_Divine_Child.html dried and prepped mine last year as part of her doula service. I bought capsules from Finlandia and encapsulated it myself.

I offer this service in Winnipeg, MB. I don't have kits, but I can give you a recipe and you can purchase the necessary equipment on your own. :)

I did a search on craigslist and found someone http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/van/ths/2175760209.html 

 

Your midwives might also know of someone.

I do placenta encapsulation in Calgary Alberta. I can travel for a fee as well. I have also sold kits with instructions in the past. :) My website is www.purebirth.ca and my email is susan@purebirth.ca.

I second this recommendation. PBi is a great company and they do certify people in Canada so there may be someone near you.

Hesperia I also offer placenta encapsulation (or powder if that is what you prefer) in Vancouver, BC!

am kind of in the researching stage of this but am thinking about some ways to hopefully stave off ppd this time around and maybe make it a bit easier for breastfeeding from the get go as well. i've only seen u.s. links and resources online so far...

thanks all!
I too am interested on this info.
In any case if you don’t find anything as a last resort you can always make your own placenta shake, have you heard about it?

Maybe try your local craigslist or kijiji or post an ad saying that you're looking for one (sometimes people know where to find them locally). Have you tried contacting your local pharmacy or vitamin or health food store to see what they have?

Good luck!

Worse comes to worse you could always throw the dried powder into a shake or something along those lines.
