Certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist in Vermont

Tara Carpenter, CPES.

Traditional Chinese hormonal support for new mothers, since 2011.

Note: I am on leave of absence until July 1st 2024. You may book online if your estimated due date is after this date. 

I am a Certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist (CPES.) to prepare placenta capsules for new mothers in Vermont with an FDA-approved Traditional Chinese Medicine method. I follow OSHA/EPA guidelines for safely handling bloodborne pathogens.

Thank you for my (Twins!) placenta capsules and the difference you make in many new lives. ~E.P., Essex Junction, VT.

You can encapsulate if you birth at hospital, home, or via cesarean.

To comply with state/federal guidelines, I complete each encapsulation in client’s kitchen or that of a friend or family member. Due to legal restrictions, I am unable to offer a pickup/drop off service. I am used to working in a carriage house, Airbnb rental, or equipped basement. I bring all the necessary equipment — including protective wear (disposable gloves, apron) — and only need access to hot water, sink, stovetop, electrical outlet, and counter space.

Regardless of where I encapsulate, I arrive wearing a fitted mask and freshly sanitized hands.

Your thorough care, kind personality, and gentle spirit make what you do much more than a job. I’m thankful to have met you. ~A.K., Woodstock, VT.

I received my certification with Placenta Benefits (PBU) world standard in placenta encapsulation training and only organization with Standard Operating Procedures on file with FDA in the United States. I keep a ServSafe Food Manager Certification and OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Certificate and handle each placenta with care …. Certificate-2023

My capsules were amazing! Zero anxiety/depression, less fatigue, deep sleep, more energy, more milk, less pain. I wish I’d done with my 1st baby! ~R.H., Stowe, VT.

Placenta capsules contain:

  • Protein
  • Hormones (i.e., oxytocin, prolactin)
  • Trace elements (i.e., iron, zinc)
  • B Vitamins (i.e., b6, b12)
  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
  • Immunoglobulin G (IgG)
  • Placental Opioid-Enhancing Factor

Placenta capsules can:

    • Balance hormones
    • Stimulate breastmilk supply
    • Increase iron/energy
    • Decrease risk of “baby blues” and/or depression/anxiety
    • Relieve pain from caesarean birth or stitches
    • Tighten and tone uterus to pre-pregnancy size
    • Strengthen immune system
    • Shorten postpartum bleeding/lochia
    • Regulate thyroid
    • Birth recovery

I plan to encapsulate again and won’t give birth without this postpartum healing! ~L.B., Burlington, VT.

The encapsulation process:

I complete each encapsulation in client’s home kitchen in 2 separate steps; once from 10am-1pm and again from 5-7pm. Any surface and equipment that cannot be immersed in 10% bleach solution are sanitized with an EPA approved surface disinfectant. Your kitchen will be clean and able to use in between each step the day I come to encapsulate. I ask that pets and small children are kept in another room during my work.

I am tidy and quiet during this special, intimate time in your life and do not consider myself a guest nor expect to meet the new mother and baby. Upon my departure, I will leave you with a dosage card that will state how to begin taking your capsules along with how many you received; most moms receive anywhere from 80-200 capsules for postpartum use.

I didn’t experience PPD like I did with my first baby, so glad to be present for those precious weeks with a newborn. I wish all women knew you. ~A.J., Brattleboro, VT.

Choose from plain or grape-flavored capsules when you book online.

The placenta is naturally rich in hormones that can provide a new mother with a deep sense of calm because the opioid-enhancing factor in placental tissue is shown to stimulate her own opioids and endorphins to reduce pain and increase well-being. Many mothers seek me out for this hormone inducing effect in order to feel strong and steady after giving birth. 

Note: I am on leave of absence until July 1st, 2024. You may book online if your estimated due date is after this date.
