Placenta Encapsulation, Births and Beyond
~ Replenish and Refresh ~
Placentophagy is simply the practice of consuming the placenta after birth. It is believed that the practice derives from ancient Chinese medicine, wherein the organ would be used to help treat medical conditions such as infertility and liver problems. Traditional Chinese Medicine Inspired Method of Placenta Encapsulation.
The Traditional Chinese Medicine Inspired (TCMI) method is the oldest recipe we have for placenta encapsulation; it has been done the longest in Chinese culture. The signature of this method is the steaming step. In TCMI theory, the process of labor and birth leaves a lot of open, empty space, which is considered very yin, or cold. Therefore, one major way we can promote healing during the postpartum period is to add yang energy via heat. We therefore incorporate steam and warming herbs into the remedy, and the final result is warming, tonifying, and nourishing for the postpartum by encapsulating your placenta.
