In the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) method of placenta encapsulation, once the placenta is cleaned, it is steamed (i.e. warmed) gently before it is dehydrated. After birth, it is said that the mother is left in a cold state. Using the Placenta as an herb may assist with bringing homeostasis to the mother’s body post birth. During the steaming step, the water used to steam is enhanced with the use of warming herbs. Lemon and ginger are most commonly used because they are both warming and aid in distributing the healing properties of the placenta throughout the body. Next, the placenta is dehydrated and then encapsulated and bottled. The placenta capsules can provide a steady release of energy in the postpartum and could assist the mother with balancing and stabilizing her hormones. TCM method usually produces a few weeks supply of capsules (the amount varies per placenta).
