Yes, you heard that right. Insurance companies are paying for placenta services! So, placenta encapsulation is not much of a secret anymore. Families everywhere are healing faster and avoiding the baby blues. Doctors are getting on-board because the benefits are clear. One of my recent placenta clients had a C-section. She says, “I have no signs of postpartum depression, I have an amazing milk supply, am healing so fast from my C-section and I have tons of energy!” And her doctor was shocked at how fast she is recovering.
Why should you consider placenta encapsulation?
Because after giving birth…
The 24-hour demands of a newborn coupled with physically recovering from birth, is exhausting. You will suffer from a drastic drop in hormones and nutrients. Most women experience some form of postpartum depression and/or anxiety, often in silence and without treatment. When the mother suffers, the whole family suffers. Postpartum stress and depression can last for years and is detrimental to a child’s development.
Benefits of taking placenta:
Improved brain function
Improved mother-baby bonding
Plentiful milk production
Improved mood and emotions throughout your postpartum
Improvements in fitness ability and work efficiency
A balanced feeling of overall wellness

Your insurance may even pay for it!
Currently, Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) and Healthcare Savings Accounts (HSAs) are the ways in which insurance companies are covering placenta services. First, if you have an FSA or HSA through your insurance, all you should need to do is ask your maternity care provider (OB or CNM) to write you a recommendation for placenta services. If they are unfamiliar with the benefits and how taking placenta can help you during your postpartum, share the research (sources cited): http://losangelesplacenta.com/los-angeles-placenta-encapsulation-benefits. Next, ask your Certified Placenta Specialist for an itemized statement. Finally, either pay your Placenta Specialist with your FSA card or submit your itemized statement to your insurance company for reimbursement.
