How my service works
If you decide to go ahead it is all very simple – this is how it works……
- Your complete a booking form giving me details of due date, and the service required etc.
- I email you a Welcome Pack which includes details of what you will need for the hospital, Placenta Care and notes for your hospital file etc.
- You or your partner contacts me when labour begins.
- Again make contact with me when baby and placenta arrive.
- We arrange pick up at the hospital or at home if a home birth.
- I return your capsules within 2-3 days by hand, post or courier.
PLEASE NOTE: as birth is unpredictable there is always a chance I will not be available to pick up your placenta with in the first hours of its birth. You will be given a care document that ensures your placenta is cared for safely until it is collected.
What do I need to do to keep my placenta safe until the encapsulation?
Your placenta will need to be chilled to ensure it remains safe to consume after birth. Your placenta should be stored in a refrigerator at 8°C or below within 30 minutes of its birth. Hospitals may not allow you to store your placenta in their fridges, therefore you may need to store your placenta in a cooler bag surrounded by frozen ice packs. Some midwives may allow you to keep your frozen ice packs in the hospital freezer during labour. Talk to you midwife about your options at your local hospital.
