Hello and welcome to Mandala Placenta Encapsulation.

As a mother of 3 children, I believe strongly that women and birthing parents should have the right to choose to benefit from all of the vitamins, minerals and nutrients their wonderful placenta has to offer them.

Here at Mandala Placenta Encapsulation I want the clients to feel that they are not only special but that they are my number one priority – because they are!

My hope is that by choosing me to provide your placenta remedy services you will feel supported and cared for.  It’s a true honour to play a small role in my clients birth story, and I always want that role to be remembered as a positive and empowering experience.

Placenta Benefits

The placenta is a rich source of iron, amino acids and essential fats which are the perfect replenishment following labour.

The placenta also contains lots of amazing hormones nutrients and minerals including:


Replenishes iron levels.


 Promotes lactation.


Combats stress and unlocks energy stores.


Helps with pain and encourages bonding and needed to produce breast milk.


Stimulates the production of endorphins which help increase well-being.

New Mothers and birthing parents who have taken placenta capsules reported:

  • A boost in their energy levels and feelings of vitality.
  • A healthy and increased milk supply and have found their milk to come in faster.
  • Reduced bleeding following the birth.
  • Faster Recovery from the birth.
  • Avoidance or reduction of Postnatal depression or baby blues.
  • Returning back to their pre-pregnancy figure faster.
  • Balance in hormonal peaks and drops.
  • Improvement in the appearance of skin hair and nails


The History

Placenta Encapsulation and remedies certainly make placenta consumption much more palatable however it is not a new or current ‘fad’, placenta remedies are an important part of birthing history (consuming placenta following birth is even mentioned in the bible!). 

Here are a few interesting facts..

One of the first and greatest medical and pharmaceutical experts of China, Li Shi-Zhen, included placenta zi he chi as a medicine in his first TCM Materia Medica published in 1578.  The placenta is considered a powerful and sacred medicine – a ‘full of life force’ organ that should be consumed to support a healing mother after birth.

There is scattered documentation of dried placenta prescribed as a remedy in Europe during the 1700’s. However, it wasn’t until the mid 1980’s when Raven Lang, an American midwife who studied TCM,  brought back this lost tradition by promoting placenta remedies during a MANA conference in America

In Europe The commercial use of “placenta extract” found in some cosmetics, such as facial cream, is sold in France. In 1994, Britain banned the practice of collecting placentas in hospitals from unsuspecting mothers, after it was learned that 360 tons of it were annually being bought and shipped by French pharmaceutical firms. They used it to make a protein, albumin, for burns and to make enzymes to treat rare genetic disorders

More recently research has been done at the Jena University in Germany in 2018 where they found the placenta to be a source of hormones, minerals and nutrients and felt that placenta remedies could not be discounted in effecting mood and wellbeing without further investigation.

Placenta Encapsulation

There are 2 methods of placenta encapsulation, we have found both to be incredibly effective.

The Simple Dehydrated Method £195.00

Also known as the raw method of encapsulation.

The placenta is not steamed but placed directly into the dehydrator, then ground into a fine powder and encapsulated.

This form of encapsulation is the most popular and considered by new parents to be very energising.


The Steamed Method £195.00

This is method is inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine teachings as is also know as the TCM method. 

The placenta is steamed and infused with ginger, chilli and lemon, chosen for their balancing properties, it is then dehydrated and ground into a fine powder before being placed into capsules.

I will always steam your placenta if meconium is present at birth or if you test positive for Group B Strep as a safety precaution.

This method of encapsulation is considered to be calming and balancing.

50/50 capsules £225.00

If both methods of placenta encapsulation appeal you can have your placenta prepared half one way and half the other.

Tincture £75.00

Placenta Tincture is made from a piece of placenta steeped in very strong alcohol the same way as flower rescue remedies are made. 

It is really useful for all sorts of hormone balancing, including PMS. 

It’s a really strong remedy made over a 6 week period, it can last an indefinite amount of time if stored in a cool dark place. Some women have even stored it to support them through menopause.

Homeopathic Remedies £70.00

Homeopathic’s, are remedies that heal on a vibrational, energetic level.

Homeopathic placenta remedies are special because you receive two, one for you and one for your baby your babies tablets are the size of a pin head and dissolve easily on the tongue and you can reorder them so they really are a placenta remedies that can last a life time.

Your remedy can be used to support you when you feel emotional, stressed, experiencing loss, grief or hormonal imbalances.

Your baby’s remedy can be used as your child’s constitutional remedy for life since it was their life-giving source for their time in-utero. It contains the blue print of his/her energetic make-up and hence, the amazing ability to bring balance and illicit healing from within when illness, disease, emotional challenges, or difficult life transitions arise.

If you book homeopathy, I will send a small sample of your placenta to my registered homeopath and she will then prepare and post on your remedies to you. You can expect to receive them in around two weeks from the date I collect your placenta.

Smoothie £40.00

Having a smoothie can be the quickest way to get the vitamins, minerals, nutrients and hormones back into your body.
Birthing parents that have consumed a smoothie report feeling energised very quickly after consumption. 
It can also be a great way to reduce your post natal bleeding and bring your milk supply in quicker.
A handful of berries, a banana, mineral water and a piece of placenta, delicious.

Placenta Oil £45.00

Your powdered placenta is steeped with organic apricot kernel oil, other oils are available.

You can add a few drops of the oil to balms, creams or massage oil.  It will work wonders on nappy rash or your skin, can be used on scars, stretchmarks and well as the face!

Holly from Bassetlaw

Louise is so helpful.  Always there for any question & query.

She is part of the birthing experience and so caring about your journey too.

Louise is passionate about the powerful placenta & it’s health benefits which means you can’t help but get excited about all the goodness you’ll feed back into your body. 

So grateful to you. Would recommend to anyone.  It was my first baby and I feel so supported and lucky I had such a pleasant experience.

Thanks again Louise.

Victoria from Burton

Amazing service and lovely lovely lady.  Louise travelled at 4am to collect my placenta and my capsules were delivered 2 days after, super speedy!

I’ve felt a lot more energetic and happier in comparison to my first birth where I didn’t use placenta

February 2022.

Rachel from Birmingham

Louise was excellent, answered all my questions beforehand, she arrived very quickly at the hospital after birth and I received my capsules a few days later. I have felt great since receiving my capsules.  I have had no baby blues and handled the lack of sleep very well as they have given me more energy.

I would definitely do this again if I have more children.

Thank you.

Amy from Derby

Louise is wonderful!! She came out of her way the very same day we were in touch and made my wishes happen. I cannot thank you enough Louise!!! 

This is the best decision I have made regarding my well being following the birth of my third baby. 

On reflection knowing what I know now I should have done this before, I am just really pleased I did this time around.

I have felt they are my happy pills giving me genuine happy feels after taking each dose.

I have had more energy and general well being by taking my capsules compared to my previous births. I’m now on the last few and feel sad they are finished.

I highly recommend encapsulation of your placenta and the service Louise provides. 

What an amazing experience start to finish!!

Holly from Coventry

Louise was really helping when I was booking her and it was very easy to add products when In decided I wanted more. 

The pack sent ton us had everything we needed in and was easy to understand what needed to be done with the placenta.

On the day, she was easy to contact and arrived at the hospital quickly. The capsules arrived 2 days later.  I was so happy they arrived quickly so I could start getting the benefits straight away.

Everything after birth went a lot better then I thought it would.  No heavy bleeding, no baby blues and easy breastfeeding.

Some people are a bit unsure about the idea of placenta capsules / products.  I didn’t even see the placenta in hospital, the midwives dealt with everything. The capsules are just like taking any other tablet. Don’t let the idea put you off, it really is worth it.

I would 100% recommend Louise and would do the same again if I have another baby.

Vicki from Leicester

Louise was fantastic. She answered all queries very quickly and was really passionate and knowledgeable about placenta encapsulation.

I believe the tablets really helped me in various ways and would definitely recommend to others.

Thanks again Louise.

Grace from Leicestershire

Louise was absolutely brilliant. She answered all of my questions very quickly via email, brought everything round so I was prepared and arrived only 40 minutes after my placenta was delivered.

Louise brought my capsules round 18 hours later.  She was so kind, caring and supportive, I couldn’t ask for a better service. The beautiful art she made with the umbilical cord is so special and such a wonderful added touch.

I had postpartum thyroiditis after my first baby but I haven’t with my second and I believe that’s partly down to encapsulating my placenta.

I was over the moon with the service and even happier with how I felt taking my capsules.

Thank you so very much Louise xxx
