Placenta Encapsulation

Has anyone out there done this? or heard about it? I have been seriously thinking about doing it. $50-$300 depending on if certified or not. $200 is about average..

  • You can do your own, my friend did. I did not because we chose to bury the placenta with a tree in the back yard.

  • Great question! I am glad you posted this, because I have to look this up too. We chose the burial route for my DS's placenta but this time around I want to encapsulate too.
