I chose Kathryn after meeting with a few doulas and encapsulation specialists because she was easy to talk to and I appreciated her straight-forward and direct approach toward answering my questions. The cost was very much worth the benefits I received! The benefits were beyond imaginable. I decided to try the placenta encapsulation after my fifth delivery. My first four deliveries were followed by severe postpartum depression starting at six weeks post-delivery. After this delivery I experienced no postpartum symptoms! There was one occasion where I started feeling some lows and waves of sad thoughts and emotions. I took the tincture and fifteen minutes later, I felt like a new person, full of energy and happy. I’ll never deliver another baby without the placenta encapsulation and tincture again! Thank you Kathryn, it changed my and my families’ lives for the better.Maria ~ Walnut Creek, CA
We chose you because the price point was very competitive, and you offered both encapsulation as well as tincture. We loved that you would come to our house (since we had a home birth) and that you gave incredibly detailed instructions about what we needed to do in preparation. We felt totally at ease with the process. I think the cost was definitely worth it. Not only did I feel much more balanced while taking the pills, I feel like I have something stashed in my back pocket with the tincture for future needs. It would have been a shame to just dispose of the placenta! You were so timely and easy to work with. My husband was able to handle everything so that I could recover, and this in itself made everything just feel luxurious. I felt the benefits of taking my pills were more energy, less mood swings, and just a general feeling of wellbeing.Anika ~ Pleasanton, CA
My doula (Angela Steele) referred you to me. Your site was very visually appealing and professional. I liked that I could find everything on your site. The investment was wort every penny. Something that stood out to me was the heart shaped umbilical cord. I had never heard of that and have shown it to so many people. After taking my placenta capsules, my overall mood improved. By my second week post partum I felt like my old self. It’s hard to tell the benefits when it’s your first time but others noticed a difference in me.Thomishia ~ Concord, CA
Kathryn was very quick and thorough with communication. I didn’t remember to text until I was late in labor but she was still able to come to L&D early the next day and the processing time was very quick, even though I wasn’t in the service area. I felt like I returned to my normal self much faster, and had less anxiety and mood swings. I still had baby blues, but that lifted quickly once I started taking my pills. I loved knowing I wasn’t putting anything foreign or processed in my body, since I was breastfeeding, and that my baby was still getting the nutrients she got while in my womb.First Time Mom ~ Modesto, CA
I chose Kathryn after I had heard her name on a facebook group and did some of my own research. I found Placenta Encapsulation worth every penny that it cost. I was amazed at just how different and better this healing process went than with my first birth. I’m more prone to getting Postpartum Depression and this time I haven’t dealt with any of that.Tori ~ Stockton, CA
Kathryn did a great job. Answered all my questions. This was my fourth girl and I had postpartum with all the others. My first time trying this, and I’m so glad I did. No postpartum this time! I had a few off days, but overall way better! Thank You! Try it…why not, all natural and it comes from your body. What stands out most about my experience was that it was not gross!!!Julie ~ Castro Valley, CA
I can’t straight up tell anyone to eat their placenta. The first time I heard about it, I thought it was a disgusting idea. But, here I am: I had no postpartum depression, my milk supply was and still is perfect and my baby hasn’t gotten sick once at 9 months. Maybe it’s a coincidence?? I don’t believe in coincidences. Yes, the pills smell a little funny and taste weird too. But after a couple days, you get used to it. Why not? Kathryn delivers you pills right away in a beautiful glass jar I’m saving as a keepsake!First Time Mom ~ Concord, CA
I liked the way you responded to my questions, and that you replied promptly as well. The services you offered, as well as your rates were very reasonable and in my price range. I was assured by your responses with regards to certification and how the placenta is handled. I have zero regrets and would strongly recommend it to every pregnant woman to consider it. I was very worried about PND and he placenta pills very clearly altered my mood and emotional balance in a very positive way. It was so effective I could have only one pill a day, which meant I could consume them for longer. Both my husband and I clearly saw the difference when I took them and when I didn’t. The effects were almost immediate. I knew I had forgotten to take my placenta pills when I started feeling weepy, it was kind of crazy! I was very happy and energetic after taking them, I felt like I could do anything. It helps that I had family support and my husband was amazing, but I believe the placenta pills helped me emotionally in a way no one really could.Cherie ~ Oakland, CA

Kathryn is the best, she was very helpful with my placenta encapsulation. I appreciated her kindness and all the assistance she offered me. I did not use her as a doula this time but definitely next time around. Thank you Kathryn for everything, the pills are working out great, and I loved the umbilical cord keepsake.Lizeth ~ Antioch, CA
Thanks you so much for your absolutely amazing customer service. You turned the placenta around so quickly that the pills were in my fridge waiting for me when I got home from the hospital! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your services.Lauren ~ Concord, CA
“I just wanted to thank you for the placenta capsules. I am the type of person who believes it when I see it and I really feel that they have helped me so much already. My milk came in really good on day 2! I had so much grief with my milk supply with AJ. I also feel amazing. So anyway thank you again for all your hard work. I am a happy customer!”Amanda ~ Concord, CA
I’m definitely glad I got my placenta encapsulated. I have a history of depression and felt that I was highly likely to get PPD. Unfortunately, I ended up getting PPD immediately. However, I think that I was able to prevent it from escalating out of control because I was taking the capsules as well as getting good sleep at night. I’m sure the capsules helped with different parts of my healing, and I was able to get further help to control my PPD. I was amazed at how fast you were able to pick up my placenta and return with the capsules!Experienced Mom ~ Livermore, CA
