IMG_9597w

“I’m a first time mom and I used Nashville Childbirth to do my Placenta Encapsulation. With so many companies that now do Placenta Encapsulation in Nashville I thought it was going to be a hard choice but after seeing the professionalism, integrity, and kindness of Jeannie Casey and her company it was not a hard choice! I love everything Nashville Childbirth stands for and teaches! And I’ve had such great results with my capsules that I won’t go to anyone else in my future pregnancies!!! Every mom should did! Seriously such a huge help! Love love love!!!” –

Placenta Encapsulation is a centuries-old tradition that has been brought back into the spotlight by modern women who realize the amazing benefits of encapsulating their placenta.  The placenta is an amazing organ full of nutrients and hormones your body has made by you, for your baby and these can be helpful in replenishing your body of depleted reserves after giving birth.

Placenta Encapsulation is the process of preparing the mother’s placenta by dehydrating, powdering and placing it into capsules for the mother to use as she sees fit. We also provide a placenta tincture which is an alcohol based infusion. This is shelf-stable, as long as it’s kept in a cool dark place. Placenta tincture can be used during emotional times, stress, PMS, and up into menopause to help regulate hormones in the body.

This can be done for both cesarean births and vaginal births, births that take place in a home or a hospital.
