Processing your placenta is a safe and healthy method of aiding your body through the transition of the postpartum period. Galveston Birth Center is the island’s only location that has an OSHA-compliant area dedicated to placenta processing. The placenta is the organ that surrounds your baby and provides the circulation of vital nutrients, blood and waste. It is rich in minerals, and our encapsulation option can help you boost your health in various ways.
Some benefits of consuming the placenta include:
helps prevent postpartum depression
improves breast milk supply
boosts postpartum energy levels
aids the uterus in returning to its pre-pregnancy size
may prevent postpartum hemorrhage and decrease postpartum bleeding
may prevent iron deficiency anemia
There is a flat rate of $250 for pick up from UTMB Galveston, raw method placenta encapsulation, and delivery on the island. Clients of Galveston Birth Center can take advantage of a discounted rate of $200 for raw method placenta encapsulation.
We encourage families to schedule a time to visit, ask questions, and take a private tour of our facility and birthing space.
