FAQ: Placenta Encapsulation

Each placenta is unique and has a different size and mass. Depending on the size and the choice of preparation it usually ranges between 115-200.

The most important thing is that it is kept cold until your specialist arrives. Keep in the fridge or on ice at all times. Some hospitals and birth centers will put it in a holding fridge until it is picked up. Other hospitals won't hold it for you. In that case, just just take to your car or put with personal belongings until we arrive. MAKE SURE IT DOES NOT GO TO PATHOLOGY where formaldehyde is used and then encapsulation is not viable. We require that you provide a hot/cold freezer bag and keep the placenta covered in ice until our arrival. As long as it is kept in ice, it is safe until we are able to pick it up.
