FAQ: Placenta Encapsulation
For those babies that have passed meconium (first poop while in the womb), encapsulation is still completely viable! We may use an apple cider vinegar soak first and if placenta is very saturated, we will use the Balanced Method and steam it before dehydration.
If we have picked up your placenta and see abnormalities or a reason that it is not a healthy encapsulation, we will let you know. This rarely happens, but our goal is to provide the healthiest and safest experience for you and sometimes that includes NOT using the placenta.
If we are unable to provide encapsulation with your placenta, it would be cleaned and ready for burial or if you’d prefer, not returned to you. You will also receive a placenta print and cord keepsake if you request. The $50 deposit is retained to cover the cost of client communication, travel and inspection supplies.
If the placenta is unable to be encapsulated due to infection, half of the deposit is refundable.
If the client changed their mind or did not contact Baby Nest for placenta pickup, the $50 deposit is retained.
