Placenta Encapsulation Services

The perfect postpartum supplement. We come to you to prepare your placenta for consumption.

What is Placenta Encapsulation?

Placenta encapsulation is the process of preparing, dehydrating, and grinding the placenta into a powder and putting it into capsules to be ingested by the birthing parent.

We offer the safest placenta encapsulation services in Calgary and area. You deserve the peace of mind that comes with having your placenta prepared in a transparent manner. *Vegan capsule options are available.


Why do people choose Placenta Encapsulation?

Although there have not been any significant scientific studies into the benefits of placenta consumption, our clients choose placenta encapsulation because consuming the placenta is thought to:


  • decrease the risk of postpartum depression
  • balance postpartum hormones
  • provide a faster recovery from childbirth
  • replenish nutrient levels
  • improve postpartum moods
  • decrease afterbirth bleeding

Placenta Encapsulation

Your placenta is prepared in your home, using a Traditional Chinese Medicine inspired method. You can expect about 75-180+ capsules. Guidelines for use and continued support via phone, email, and text is included. We can also arrange for cord keepsakes, placenta tinctures (see below), and other placenta services at your request.

Placenta Tincture

Your placenta capsules are meant to be taken over the first few weeks of your baby’s life. For longer lasting benefits, we recommend you add tincture preparation to your placenta services. A small amount of your placenta is preserved in alcohol. Our trade secret high-proof alcohol results in a superior tincture (gluten-free option is available upon request), remaining potent for many years to come.  The liquid can be taken a few drops at a time. Clients may use the tincture as they see fit for many years to come.

Placenta Art Prints

Placenta prints are a special keepsake. They can be framed for your nursery, and some parents say it has become their favorite piece of art. Placenta prints can be done prior to preparing the placenta for encapsulation or be provided as a stand-alone service. We create at least two quality prints and you may choose from custom color combinations, natural prints or a one of each.

Have Question?

We welcome any questions about our safety procedures by email or phone. For fast and convenient booking, placenta encapsulation services can be purchase online and scheduled via email. Last minute bookings are welcome depending on availability.

I would highly recommend Lacey. I got my placenta encapsulated by her and i love the fact that she came over to our house. Her work was extremely professional and clean. My kitchen was spotless when she left. We were able to ask question and take picture thru the process my husband really liked that! The fact that my placenta didn’t leave my sight make me feel in total confidence.

I cant say enough good things about my experience with Lacey. I got my placenta en-capsuled and was a little hesitant about her doing it in my house at first. The thought of being a first time mom and having someone here so soon after the baby was a bit intimidating. Lacey went above and beyond to make me comfortable. From the moment i called her to inform her of the birth of my lovely Luke she was amazing. She told me to go home and relax. She came over and left my kitchen even cleaner than she found it! She was calming and answered any questions i had regarding the placenta and my new baby boy. I would highly recommend using Lacey!! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Lacey came to my home promptly after my son was born and prepared the placenta and got everything “cooking” in my own home while I rested with my baby on day 1. She took extra care to ensure everything was properly sanitized before and after she began and it was nice to have it done in my own home. She also made some beautiful prints of the placenta for keepsakes. She came back the second day and finished everything up. We had a lovely visit as she did everything (though there was no expectation of me to do so). She was very mindful of proper sanitization and protection of herself (gloves, mask, etc) and our family from any cross contamination. Lacey takes great pride in what she does. She does a great job, is prompt and efficient and very friendly too. Plus she follows up to make sure all is satisfactory or just to see how YOU are doing, even though I hadn’t used her as a doula. I can imagine based on my interactions with her for the placenta encapsulation service, that she is an amazing doula as well. I would highly recommend Lacey and her services without hesitation and should I ever decide to have another baby, I will certainly be calling in CCD for my future encapsulation needs.

My experience with Lacey was amazing! I had so much going on and had to stay in the hospital extra days and she was so nice about it and just met with my mom at my house to proceed with her work. I asked for pictures of my placenta as I wasn’t able to see it and she sent them right over to me. I will definitely be asking Lacey to encapsulate my placenta again if I ever have another baby! Thanks for everything Lacey! And always being there to talk if I needed it!
