Human Placentophagy has been around for years, but the popularity of this postpartum trend is rapidly rising in western culture.
Why would someone eat their own placenta?
Consuming your placenta has been said to enhance the postpartum experience by providing mental and physical benefits.
Although throughout history women have consumed their placenta raw, the modern approach to placenta consumption is encapsulation.
DOULAS OF ASHEVILLE's postpartum placenta specialists have all been trained by ProDoula - A doula certification organization for the modern woman.
As ProDoula trained Postpartum Placenta Specialists, Doulas of Asheville is proud to be raising the standard by preparing our client's placentas exclusively in the comfort of their own home.
As somebody doing research on placenta encapsulation you might be wondering where else someone would encapsulate my placenta?
The truth is, many doulas practice placenta encapsulation in their own homes or dedicated work space as opposed to the client's home; an environment 100% controlled by the client.
In ProDoula's recent blog post on the matter, titled 'Kung Pao Placenta', a professional private chef discusses safe food handling procedures and how it relates to placenta handling. You may be surprised how many individuals are processing placenta for women in unsafe ways, within these uncontrolled environments.
