Why do I provide a transport kit to my clients?
The transport kit makes me feel more confident that the placenta does not come in contact with contaminated hospital buckets, or get left out for too long. When you have a kit with ziploc bags and a cooler, the placenta can go directly into the ziploc bags and into the cooler, surrounded by ice until I can pick up.
Just a few Frequently asked questions:
Q: How Do I choose between the Steamed and Unsteamed methods of Prep?
A: I don't tell people which to choose. The reasons people choose one or the other is based on personal preference. Some people who are following a TCM diet after birth, prefer the steamed method, as it is believed to introduce heat to the body to aid in healing. If you are currently seeing a Chinese Medicine practitioner, I recommend that you ask them about which would be best for your constitution. If you are looking for containing as many of the nutrients as possible, you may want to go with the Non steamed method, although both provide energy and we don't know how much is lost in the steaming process. If you aren't sure, you can mark Not sure on the form and we can discuss further.
Q: Can I still have my placenta turned into pills if I have a Cesarean (C-Section)?
A: Yes! Having a c-section is not a reason to not encapsulate. As long as the placenta is sealed up in a bag or container and on ice within 2 hours after the birth and is kept cold until I pick up, you can definitely still have your placenta encapsulated!
Q: Can I still take my placenta if I have tested positive for (Group B Strep)?
A: Yes! Many pregnant people (about 25%) test positive for GBS around the 37th week of pregnancy. If this is the case, they are usually put on antibiotics in labor to prevent the bacteria passing to the baby. Once the baby and placenta have been born, if there is concern of infection, a small piece can be sliced off and sent to pathology while the placenta is stored safely to await results. All placentas are dehydrated at 160 degrees F, per food safety guidelines. I have never had a client report any illness due to the placenta pills, and have gotten nothing but positive feedback from new parents.
