5. Print out the Health Information and Placenta Release Form. Bring it to your next prenatal visit and have your care provider fill out and sign the required information. Sign and date. Please provide this completed form or a copy of your recent STD panel to us upon pickup of your placenta. (There is also a Hospital release form for your hospital if they need it.)
6. Specify in your birth plan that you will be keeping your placenta. You may have to sign a release form if you are birthing in hospital.
8. Pack two gallon-size Ziploc bags with your name and phone number written on one, in your birth bag or suitcase.
9. If you are birthing at the hospital, bring a small cooler with you to keep your placenta cold until pick-up. Feel free to keep this in your car during your birth. Some local hospitals require the placenta to ‘leave the premises’ within 2 hours of birth. If this happens, just place your placenta in your cooler in your car with LOTS of ice and call us immediately so we can arrange pickup.
10. After your baby is earthside, please call or text 678-744-9766 so we can arrange pick-up.
11. Most hospitals in the Atlanta area will pack the placenta up for you. If they do not do this, just place the placenta in one of the gallon zip-lock baggies and seal it up. Then place that bag (with the placenta) inside the other baggie with lots of ice and call us at 678-744-9766.
12. We will then make arrangements for pickup. Please make sure the placenta is either on ice or in a refrigerator with 2 hours after birth and stay on ice until we pick up.
13. We can usually have the placenta completed within 48-72 hours. We will contact you when the encapsulation is finished to arrange delivery.
14. When we deliver your placenta, we will go over how to use your placenta pills and tincture. At that time, the remainder of the payment is due.
