According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) techniques, the placenta is considered a ‘full of life force’ organ and is used to support mothers in healing after the birth of their child. The first documented usage dates back all the way to 1578 from one of the first pharmaceutical experts of China, Li Shi-Zhen, in a publication called TCM Materia Medica.
In the 1980s an American midwife, Raven Lang, who was studying TCM revived the lost tradition by promoting placenta remedies during a MANA conference in the United States.
It has since caught on as a holistic approach to postpartum care.

How can The Happy Mama Place help?
Your placenta has been a source of nourishment for your baby–full of vitamins, nutrients, and hormones–that can now work for you to help with a speedier recovery and smoother transition from pregnancy to postpartum. Through the process of dehydration you can use your placenta as a supplement that is as easy to take as your daily vitamins.
All placenta services include a complimentary phone consult to help you decide on what method of encapsulation is right for you. Your placenta will be picked up within 24 hours of the birth and returned within 48 hours of pick up.
