RAW method capsules, Umbilical cord heart keepsake, Young Living homemade product for postpartum. 

Micole Ashley placenta encapsulation service consists of the ‘RAW  Foods Method.’ I take a fresh, raw placenta after birth; wash it, slice it, dehydrate it and grind it. The placenta powder is carefully transferred into vegan capsules. Once in capsules, I bottle them up in an amber jar for storing. I shape the umbilical cord into a heart shape as a keepsake. Both, capsules and cord are given to the mother to consume within 24-72 hours of giving birth.

The Raw Foods Method of preparation uses lower temperatures and no steaming. I do not add herbs, spices or any added igredients. This method of placenta preparation yields a higher, more potent capsule.

What Do You

Need To Do?

Client is responsible for purchasing a disposable cooler to bring to the hospital for safe transfer of the placenta. Client will arrange for someone to drop off & pick up in Glendora, CA for this service. Client is responsible for informing hospital staff immediately after arriving to their birth place--that patient will be taking their placenta home. Once hospital staff is informed, they will require you to sign a form of consent. 

After birth, patient must remind doctor/nurses that their placenta will be taken by a designated person. You will ask your nurse for ice and then your placenta will be placed in your disposable ice chest. Your designated person will need to bring me your placenta within 3-4 hours of your birth. 

It is never too late to book me for this service! Although I prefer to be notified ahead of time before 36 weeks, I can still do last minute clients. If you are in the hospital and last minute decide you want to utilize Placenta Encapsulation--I will not turn you down!

Common Questions?

If I have a cesarean, can I encapsulate?

YES. You just let your doctor and nurse know once you arrive.

If I test positive for any diseases, can I encapsulate?

NO. For the safety of myself, I do not offer my services if this is the case.

I tested positive for STREP B, can I encapsulate?

YES. In this case, I no longer do the raw method--and instead of implement the chinese method. Which boils the placenta first & dehydration at higher temperatures to rid it of any bacteria.

If I have a traumatic birth, and my doctor wants to take my placenta for testing--can I encapsulate?

YES. You need to demand that your doctor only takes a piece of the placenta, rather than the entire thing. That way both parties are happy.

If I want to cord bank and encapsulate, can I do both?

YES. In this case, we just lose your umbilical cord. You will let your doctor and nurse know that they can cut the umbilical cord, but that your want the mother part of your placenta. 

Can my partner take my placenta?

In my opinion, I do not recommend this. As it is only your body that needs the nutrients given that you will of just given birth. This sacred practice is really only for the birthing person.

I don't like pills, is there another way for me to consume my placenta?

I tell my clients they can break open the capsules and pour the powder inside of a smoothie.
