Jolanda van den Bosch
Jolanda van den Bosch educated herself in 2016 for Placenta Specialist at the IPPA (Internation Placenta & Postpartum Association). 
Since then she capsulate placenta on a regular bases. At her own pregnancies she had no idea this was possible. 
Her family feels complete but if she would be pregnant again, she would defintely consume her placenta just to feel the difference!
But what can you do with it?
When you are pregnant, the placenta takes over the hormone management. So your placenta is responsable for not rejecting your unborn baby. Cause it is a little weird, that little creature inside of you with it's own blood circulations in it's own environment. 

When your baby is born, you don't need the placenta to do this anymore so your placenta will also be born. 

Sometimes I hear people say that the placenta is an organ full of trash, you should not consume this. But this is not true! Yes, your baby gives his/her trash via the umbilical cord to the placenta, but the placenta does not storage this. It is a simple serving hatch of transfering the trash to your body so you can get rid of it. So no trash is left behind in the placenta. 

But what can you do with it? Well, I'm going to tell you! There are several possibilities to do this. The most frequent is encapsulating. Your placenta will be hydrated, grinded and then put in capsules. So you don't recognize your placenta anymore! This is very attractive if you still have to get a little getting use to this idea. 

Another way is a tincure. A tincture is strong alcohol where a piece of the placenta has been put in. Cause of this, the tincture takes over the hormones which were in the placenta. When you feel the need for extra energy, you can put a couple of drops under your tongue. The big advantage of a tincture is that it stays good for a very long time!

Consuming your placenta is actually very normal. Look at other mammals. Eating your placenta is very normal for them. They all do it! Even when it is a herbivor or when the animal is on top of the foodchain. Even lions eat there placenta because they know it is good for their recovery. 
From all the pregnant ladies who has done this befor you, 
the capsules are the big favorite!
Almost every placenta which I have prepared, I prepared them to capsules. The big advantage of encapsulating is that you really don't recognize your placenta any more. 

The placenta will first be cut in little pieces an put in dehydrator (which only used for these occasions). You can compare this process with maken banana chips or beef jerkey. 

After it is dehydrated, it will be grinded and put in capsules. And voila! It doesn't looks or smells like a placenta!
There are 2 methods 
There are 2 ways you can encapsulate your placenta. There is the raw method or the The Chinese Method (TCM). Both of these methods has there advantages and disadvantages. Which method suits you depends  for example if you are over sensitive for hormones. 

But it also depends on how the birth was. If your baby has pooped in the amniotic fluid, TCM is recommended because of the extra hygien. 

When you can not choose between both methods, you can also do the 50/50 choice. Than one half will be prepared the raw method and the other half will be TCM. 
Raw method
The raw method maybe sounds a little funny, cause you are not eating your placenta raw. But know that your placenta will be fully dehydrated, so it is safe to save your capsules for a longer period and still consume it. 
  • MORE: With these method you have more capsules than with TCM cause with TCM the placenta shrinks a little cause of the heat during steaming. 
  • HIGHER CONCENTRATION: The raw method contains a higher level of hormones per capsules so you need less capsules to experience the benefits. 
The Chinese Method (TCM)
The only difference between the raw method and TCM is that with TCM the placenta will be steamed first befor it goes in the hydrator. 
Steaming will be done in a neutral way (without extra herbs added). 
  • When baby pooped: Even when the baby has pooped in the amniotic fluid. With this method it is still save to encapsulate your placenta. 
  •  OVER SENSITIVE: Are you very sensitive for hormones? Than is a lower concentration hornones per capsules maybe better for you. Than is this method suitable for you!

When you know your options
You know which decision you can make
WORKAROUND
YES,  you are interested! But now what?

Do you want me to prepare your placenta? Then please let me know as soon as possible. So I can make sure I have my tools ready when your placenta is delivered. But there is also enough time to send you the Placenta Package. 

You can let me know by email or whatsapp or even by phone. When you have a positive feeling, I send you a link where you can do a deposit of € 25,-. For this deposit you will receive the placenta package which has a cooling bag, bucket en ziplock bags which you can use to store your placenta in. The package comes with a very clear instructions so every Kraamzorg or nurse knows what to do. The only thing you have to do is bring the package a long to the hospital when you want to birth there or tell your husband where the package is when you want to give birth at home. 

When labour starts, you send me an app so I know there is a placenta on the way. I like to know this so I can prepare my schedule for your placenta's arrival. When there are more placenta's on the same day, the rule is first in, first out. 

Do you live within 15 kilometers of my practise? Than I pick up and drop off free of charge! Usually I pick up the placenta the same day or the next day. I strive to do the drop off within 72 hours but usually it is allready within 48 hours. So you can start taking your capsules as soon as possible!

The rest of the payment will be done at the drop off. This can be done in cash or with a Tikkie. With the capsules you also get a guide with a clear advice for taking your capsules. If you have any other questions after the drop off, of course you can still contact me!ering nog vragen, dan kun je uiteraard nog steeds bij me terecht!
Which other options are there?
Tincture
With a tincture there will be taken a small piece of the placenta en put in strong alcohol. The alcohol takes over the hormones which are in this piece of placenta. 

When you feel the need of a little extra energie, you can put several drops under your tongue for example during PMS. 

The big advantage of a tincture is that strong alcohol has a really long shell life. This is ideal to combine with encapsulation cause for a tincture you just need a very small piece of the placenta. 
Smoothie
Yes, you can also put your placenta in smoothies! Maybe it sounds a little disgusting but when you ever had a green smoothie, you know that when you put a banana in a smoothie, it takes over the whole taste. And when you put red fruit in the smoothie, you really don't recognize the placenta anymore!

The advantage of this method is that there is a very high concentration of hormones in the smoothie. So you have a quicker recovery. This is very suitable for the first days after birth. 
Combinations
So you can encapsulat your placenta, you can make a tincture or you can put it in a smoothie. 

The best deal is to combine these methods! And you know what, the placenta is usually big enough to do so!

The best recipe for placenta consuming is smoothies for the first week, than taking capsules till around week 6 and than a tincture when you feel the need.

Frequently askes questions
Is it possible to encapsulate my placenta if I give birth in a hospital?
Yes, you definetly can! It doesn't matter if you birth your baby with a C-section, or when you baby has pooped in the amniotic fluid or when you have had a fluxus, even in these situations it is still possible to encapsulate your placenta! Please do tell your caregivers you want to encapsulate your placenta. In some hospitals they still find it kind of strange to do something with it. Normally the placenta will be thrown away. So when you really want to encapsulate your placenta, tell your caregivers! You can do this best to put this also in your birthwishes. 
Does it really works?
To be honoust? I don't know... If we look at scientific results there are research which show that taking capsules does not have a significant added value. But there are also research which says that there are body's own hornones in the capsules which improves healing your body after birth. 
My opinion? From all the placenta's I have done till now, around 90% feel an improvement. I don't know if it because the capsules really works or it is just a placebo effect. But really, I don't care! The most important thing is that you feel good!
When is it not possible to consume the placenta?
In almost everey situations you can consume your placenta. There are a couple of exceptions where PUPPS is one of them. If you don't know what it is, keep it that way! Cause it is a really rare. 
Another exception is if there was an infection and you don't know what it started. The reason this can give troubles is that you don't want to consume an infected placenta. A symptom of an infection is a higher body temperature. It is very normal that your body temperature rises a little bit. Especially when you had an epidural. When you have second doubts, you can always contact me!
I still have my placenta in my freezer, can I still encapsulate it? 
Your placenta is an organ and of course there is an expiration date on it, just like normal meat you buy at a supermarket. It also depends on how you have storage it befor it was put in the freezer. If this was done within a couple of days after birth, you can consume the placenta. But if the placenta is allready over 6 months after birth, it has no added value to consume the placenta because all of the hormones are vanished.
