Polly Wood Placenta Encapsulation ServicesPolly Wood

I am a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist…helping mothers have a happy, healthy postpartum!

Using Traditional Chinese techniques, I professionally prepare the placenta into capsules to ingest in the first few weeks postpartum.

Women who take placenta capsules report fewer emotional issues, have more energy and tend to enjoy a faster, more pleasant postpartum recovery!

Your baby’s placenta, contained in capsule form is believed to:
* contain your own natural hormones
* been shown to increase milk production
* replenish depleted iron
* give you more energy
* lessen bleeding postnatally
* help you have a happier postpartum period
* hasten return of uterus to pre-pregnancy state
* balance your system
* be perfectly made for you
* be helpful during menopause

In addition to the capsules, I offer: placenta prints; preparations for placenta tincture; ‘mother’s broth’; creative cord drying.

I am based out of Ithaca and serve the Finger Lakes region. I am part of a national network of specialists trained through Placenta Benefits.

I have worked in the birth world since 1998 as a Birth Doula, Mother-baby Movement Instructor, Belly Caster, Birth Artivist & Postpartum Doula. It is truly my pleasure to bring my experience to you through Placenta Encapsulation services and postpartum support.
