Placenta Encapsulation

If you decide that placenta encapsulation is for you, we will pick up your placenta just after birth, make your capsules, prints of your placenta, and an umbilical cord keepsake.

Our prices are changing! On June 1, 2016, a new price of $250 for placenta encapsulation will be going into effect. Don’t worry - if you have already paid your deposit, your price will stay the same. Please get in touch if you have any questions.

"My partner and I took the Birth Happens classes with Venessa and Kelly and we can definitely say it was worth every penny! They are both extremely knowledgeable and down to earth.

We left the classes feeling much more prepared for the birth of our baby girl and more informed on our options during labor and delivery. Would highly recommend to anyone expecting."
