Welcome to Placenta Services of West Cobb!
We offer placenta encapsulation, smoothies, tinctures, placenta art, and even can help you with your spiritual, religious, or personal non-consumable placenta preferences!
We want women to have a happy postpartum, and there are thought to be many healing benefits to consuming the placenta. New mothers have reported that they believe the following:
· Lessen the risk of postpartum depression
· Increase energy
· Increase milk production
· Decrease postpartum bleeding
· Stabilize moods
· Decrease anxiety
· Balance out hormones
· Combat fatigue
· Replenish B-vitamins
· Help with pain relief
We strive to help moms make the most out of their postpartum experience, so they have an easier time transitioning into motherhood. We do all of the legwork for you so you can focus on what’s important- your new baby! We come to the hospital, birth center, or home to pick up your placenta for you. We clean, prepare and encapsulate your placenta in a sterilized area. Once the pills are complete, we will bring them to you at your home or the hospital. Please contact us for a free consultation or to answer any questions!

Traditional Method Placenta Encapsulation $275
The Traditional method is a modified TCM (Traditional Chinese Method). It involves cleaning the placenta and then gently steaming it with distilled water, Organic lemon, Jalapeño pepper, and ginger. After the steaming, the placenta is dehydrated before putting into capsules. This preparation is thought to bring out the placenta’s healing and tonifying properties.
(This method is also possible without the use of lemon, pepper, and ginger if there is a concern for an adverse reaction.)
(**)Raw Method Placenta Encapsulation $275
The RAW method of preparation skips the heating and herbal process altogether. Mothers following the Raw Foods diet and some vegans and vegetarians may choose Raw Start. However, this does not follow the Raw Foods diet’s methods, as they are not safe or applicable to meat consumption. Here we just gently clean the placenta and then dehydrate it at 160 degrees. Using this option is thought to provide a more potent pill, and this method will also yield more pills than the TM. However, please see the disclaimer below.
(**)Half Raw Method and Half TM Method: $300
Can’t decide which one you would like? Enjoy the benefits of both!
Discounted Placenta Encapsulation $225
For those mamas who are strapped for cash, I have a new option for you! This requires you to have someone bring the placenta to my home in Acworth immediately after the birth and to have someone come back a few days later to pick up the pills. I want all moms to have the opportunity to encapsulate if they desire!
Placenta Smoothie cubes
Prices vary depending on several factors. Please contact to discuss options.
Flavored capsules: add $10
(Must give 10-day notice before birth)
Choose from Berry, Grape, or Orange.
Add a 30 Day Supply of Lactation Cookies for $30
Three dozen Nursing Momma Lactation Cookies to help boost milk supply! Made with high quality ingredients and known galactagogues, these delicious cookies are a great way to enhance your milk supply.
Additional Placenta Services
Placenta Tincture $20
The tincture is a great way to get longevity out of the benefits of your placenta. It is believed to help regulate and balance hormones during periods, thought to lessen bleeding during those periods and give you energy, and combat fatigue. The tincture can last indefinitely if stored correctly! It’s great for saving to be used during menopause.
Placenta Art Print $30
I can create a keepsake to showcase your placenta!
Placenta Burial Package $150
This includes up to three prints, a cord keepsake, and the placenta wrapped up for burial. A tincture can be added for no additional charge.
Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have a particular belief about what you would like to have your placenta used for! We can talk about your preferences and discuss your options.
“There is a risk of food-borne diseases when consuming raw or undercooked products. While high-temperature raw preparation has been shown to significantly reduce bacterial counts, food safety guidelines recommend steaming before dehydration, which will further reduce bacteria.
If you opt to consume raw placenta in a smoothie, there is no reduction of bacteria, and any or all bacteria present will be consumed.
Because raw start encapsulation does not pre-cook the placenta to a minimum of 160°F, it does not comply with food safety recommendations. Please make sure you are aware and accept the risks associated with consuming products that are not prepared per USDA recommendations.
If you have a compromised immune system, you will be at a higher risk of illness.”

If you choose to ingest your placenta in a capsule or other form, you take full responsibility for your health and for researching and using the remedies provided.
