Placenta for Encapsulation Do’s and Dont’s

Posted on
Birthingcenter of ny placenta encapsulation

After having your baby, you want to use the placenta for encapsulation. Placental encapsulation is the practice of eating the placenta after it has been steamed, dehydrated, ground and placed into pills.  Prior to delivery of your baby the   amniotic  fluid is noted to be meconium stained.  Can you still do encapsulation?  What is the correct answer?  Do you know? 

  • No,  because the placenta is contaminated and should be sent to pathology.
  • If your baby passes meconium prior to birth, it is recommended to do basic heated encapsulation as well as rinsing the placenta in an apple vinegar bath prior to steaming it.
  • No specific care of the placenta before doing encapsulated procedure is needed .
  • Take antibiotics one week prior to using encapsulated pills.

Editor’s note: There is little research available to either support or oppose the tradition of placental encapsulation. There are a number of proposed benefits of the custom, and limited risks if the placenta is stored correctly and ingested only by the mother.  If you feel that placenta encapsulation is right for you, be sure to contact your healthcare provider to receive more information on the proper procedure for it. It is also important to be aware of any laws in your state that make it illegal to remove the placenta from the hospital.

Foods to eat during early labor

Posted on
eating during early labor

You are in early labor.  You want to stay home until you are in active labor.  What should you eat ? There’s more than one correct answer!

  • In early stage: drinking water during labor will help you stay hydrated, while taking small sips of bone broth which is nutrient rich, can assist with nausea. Coconut water which contains magnesium, potassium and electrolytes is also an excellent option for keeping hydrate
  • In active stage: lemon – lime water can provide electrolytes, which are required for muscle (uterine) contractions
  • Protein and fat. These slow the rate that your muscles use energy supplied from the sugar.  They are filling. Choose easily digestible protein sources like beans, tofu, avocado, eat small amounts.  Protein shakes  
  • Related to the fact that pregnancy is so unpredictable,  light digestible foods and clear fluids are highly recommended because emergencies may arise requiring surgery.  Avoiding dairy products is ideal. 

·         Eat Steak, fries and hamburgers to fill you up
