One of my most frequently questions asked is "how does the process work? In the booking section you’ll find a detailed information booklet for expectant mummies that you can download.
Below is a quick and easy guide for you to understand the process
The first stage you should do is your research to make sure placenta encapsulation is right for you. If you decide it is, then make sure you find a placenta specialist that is fully certified and registered with the environmental heath, so you can be rest assured your placenta is handled correctly and safely.
If you are happy with everything and would like Cherished Placentas to be apart of your postnatal recovery, please fill in our booking form & we will be in touch
Throughout your pregnancy there might be certain situations that arise and you become concerned. Once a booking has been made, we are there to support and guide you right up until baby has been born and throughout your postnatal recovery
Once you are between 36-37 weeks, you will receive your storage kit/collection kit. You need to pop the gel packs straight into the freezer. Once you go into labour you will need to take them with you, along with your kit to the hospital with you
Once you go into hospital, let your midwife know that you would like to keep your placenta. Inside your kit are instructions for the midwife to follow to make sure the placenta is stored correctly and safely. A lot of mummies pop it on their birth plans too!
When you go into labour we ask for you to give us a quick text. This allows us to be prepared. Once baby arrives, you will need to text or call me so arrangements can be made to collect the placenta within 12 hours. (We usually suggest your birthing partner to take charge of this, that way you’ll have one less thing to worry about)
Once i have collected your placenta, you will receive your capsules within 24/48 hours.
At any stage, if you are concerned or have any questions, we are available 24/7
