Placenta Encapsulation in San Diego:  Gelatin Capsules

Gelatin Capsules


The processed placenta is generally encapsulated into gelatin capsules. At your request, we also have vegetarian capsules as an option for no extra charge.  If you have any concern about taste, you may also choose flavored gelatin capsules for a $10 additional charge.  

Umbilical Cord Keepsake:

The umbilical cord is removed prior to the encapsulation process and is dried into a keepsake that you can cherish in celebration of your baby’s birth. This service is included at no additional charge.

Placenta Print:

Before the encapsulation process gets underway, we make a placenta print as a keepsake for you. Placentas create beautiful images and have been described as the tree of life. A print will show you exactly why they have been given this description. This service is included at no additional charge.
