Placenta Encapsulators

Note: Benefits of placenta encapsulation have yet to be proven by medical research, so quality evidence for their oral intake does yet convince modern medical providers of its usefulness. While some parents do claim to have experienced benefits, not all do. Some perceive it as harmless and possibly having some positive effects. Others disagree. If you have questions about encapsulation, talk to one of the placenta encapsulators below. Please note that other creative things can be done with your placenta--art, jewelry, planting it...or you are welcome to just admire it before someone disposes of it safely.

Medical Supply Companies (for breastpump rentals)

Please note that they will deliver to your home AND talk to your insurance to find out what they will cover...they can also help you purchase a breastpump that is covered by your health insurance)
