Results Reported from placenta encapsulation*

 

Bosom Buddy’s Postpartum Placenta Specialists utilize the traditional method of encapsulation.  The client will receive specific instructions on transporting and safely handling the placenta along with a transport kit which follows OSHA regulations.  The placenta is processed in the safety of the client’s own home, utilizing strict safety guidelines, leaving zero doubt that the client is receiving her own placenta. The client is welcome to ask questions and observe the process at any point.  The entire process is completed at two appointments over two days, with each appointment lasting 1-2 hours.  Most clients receive an average of 80-100 capsules with the amount varying as much as 50-180 capsules depending on the placenta size. Long-lasting tinctures are also available along with the capsules.
