Placenta Encapsulation, Cord Keepsakes, Placenta Smoothies, and Placenta Prints

Your placenta will be picked up from the birth center as soon as possible after delivery.

Please let the LOL birth team know that you are planning encapsulation or a smoothie service. They will notify Emily asap so she come and prepare your smoothie and collect the placenta for encapsulation.

For Placenta Smoothies, bring your favorite frozen fruits, a blender if possible, and coconut water if you like it, to the birth center when you come in in labor.


The Raw Method process, which keeps in more nutrients, and no added ingredients. Vegetarian capsules are used, so no animal products involved.
The Encapsulation process takes 1-3 days. Usually this enables the placenta pills to be ready by your first postpartum visit at Labor of Love. The capsules will be delivered back to the office ready for you to pick up.

If your placenta is not ready by your first postpartum visit, it can be delivered to your home.


$200 cash or check upon the delivery of your placenta capsules; checks made payable to Emily Hovet

If a hospital delivery is necessary, the placenta will be collected from hospital as soon as possible after birth. Please let your hospital team know that you are planning encapsulation and have a cooler with you for it to be stored until pick up can be arranged.
