Add on to a labor support package and save $50!

I have encapsulated over 100 placentas.  You can feel confident in my experience and professionalism.  Read my client testimonials to see how people feel about my services and their experience with placentophagy.

  • Currently I am only serving Wentworth-Douglass Hospital, Exeter Hospital, or local home birth clients.  There is an additional charge for travel if your birth place/home is more than 20 miles from my home.
  • Please confirm your due date with me by email before paying your deposit so that I can ensure that space is available.
  • Placenta tinctures are also available. Please check on your registration form if you would like them.




The CDC has recently stated that “The placenta encapsulation process does not per se eradicate infectious pathogens; thus, placenta capsule ingestion should be avoided”**

 I do steam and then dehydrate placentas that I process, both at temperatures that should kill most forms of bacteria. I cannot, however; guarantee that your placenta will not contain any live bacillus. Please understand this before contracting with me. For my protection you will be required to sign a contract stating that you have read and understand the following CDC statement.


Why Consider Encapsiulation?

Eastern medicine has used placenta for treatment of many different maladies.  Now in our own culture, many people are exploring the possible benefits of  taking placenta for healing after birth. Placenta has been claimed to promote wellness and emotional and hormonal balance.*

Placenta contains many healing elements including the following:

  • Gonadatropins: the hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.
  • Prolactin: promotes lactation.
  • Prostaglandin: stimulates  involution of the uterus.
  • Oxytocin: decreases pain and increases bonding in mother and infant.
  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone: boosts energy and helps with recovery from stressful events.
  • Cortisone: combats stress and unlocks energy stores.
  • Interferon: stimulates the immune system to protect against infections.
  • Prostaglandins: anti-inflammatory.
  • Iron: replenishes iron deficiency and anemia, a common postpartum condition.
  • Urokinase inhibiting factor and factor XIII: reduces bleeding and enhances wound healing.
  • Gammaglobulin: immune booster that helps protect against postpartum infections.

Consider a tincture too!

Placenta Tincture is made from a piece of the raw placenta steeped in high proof alcohol for 6 weeks.  It is useful for hormonal balancing from PMS to menopause.  This is a great way to make your placenta last indefinitely, as it is shelf stable and extremely potent (1 drop of tincture = 1 capsule of dried placenta) .

What my clients have experienced…

From our first meeting with her through our follow up visit, Amy truly cared about us and our birth experience.

Melissa F.

I noticed a marked difference in my mood, milk supply and general well being as compared to my first birth. I was considered high risk for postpartum depression due to my PTSD and honestly feel that my capsules helped minimize the hormonal disruptions I was worried about.


I strongly recommend Amy to anyone who is looking for a one of a kind doula who is well versed in all aspects of birthing and postpartum care for both mama and baby.


Amy was quick to answer any questions we had regarding the service and we received the capsules very quickly.She is very caring and clearly loves her job. Thanks for everything, Amy.


This service was both completely professional and completely stress free… we wondered a few things as this is done out of someone’s home but she answered all of our questions and worked with our schedule. VERY prompt, VERY kind.
