Due to the current outbreak of this virus, we at Tree of Life Placenta Services have decided to temporarily suspend our business. This is intended to protect our families and yours.
If you want your placenta encapsulated with us we encourage you to freeze it as soon as possible after delivery. Email or use or contact form and we will put you on a list to schedule when we resume services.
Unfortunately, freezing does detract some from the quality of the art prints and possibly the cord keepsake. If you want to do these portions before freezing your placenta, we are happy to be in contact with detailed instructions on how you may do them yourself.
Again, we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause in your postpartum period and we do understand that value families place on these services.
Keep safe and snuggle those babies! Blessings and best wishes to you all.
Honor Your Whole Birth, Nourish Your Whole Self

Your placenta is the amazing organ that protected, supported and nourished your baby in the womb. It has done such an incredible job of helping grow your child and yet in modern hospitals it is often regarded as nothing more than "medical waste" after it is born. In many other cultures, the placenta is given much respect and honored in a variety of ways. Some cultures have long traditions of utilizing the placenta medicinally to restore the health and vitality of the mother and to calm and balance the child. Just as it protected, nourished, supported and sustained its baby, the placenta, when carefully prepared for consumption, can continue its job by ~ supporting lactation ~ ~ facilitating an easier postpartum recovery ~ ~ increasing maternal energy ~ ~ easing life transitions ~ ~ avoiding postpartum depression ~
Our basic placenta services package includes:
~ Placenta Encapsulation ~ ~ Placenta Tincture ~ ~ Placenta Prints ~~ Placenta Salve ~ ~ Umbilical Heart or Spiral Keepsake ~ ~ Complete Information on Usage and Dosing ~ ~ Phone and Email Support for Hospital Placenta Release ~
We offer a variety of additional services that can be done in conjunction with the basic services package - please see our services menu for more information.
We do all of the placenta work at your home and you are welcome to watch as much or as little as you like. The process takes two days - the first part of the process takes about 3 hours, the placenta is left to dry at your house overnight and we'll return the next day to finish the process which takes another 1 1/2 hours.
