Optimal Timeline for Encapsulation

Ideal Timeline: 
Birth - 3 hours3 hours - 48 hours
You can prepare the placenta fresh. It will hold the most benefits at this point.You can prepare the placenta fresh, as long as it's been refrigerated.

Alternate Timeline:
If placenta can not be prepared within first 48 hours
48 hours - 2 weeks2 weeks - 4 weeksAfter a month
Double-bag placenta and freeze within first 24 hours of the birth. Thaw in the refrigerator (takes about 24 hours) prior to encapsulation.Placenta may still be encapsulated, however the longer it is in the freezer the less effective it may be to the mother.The placenta may be at risk for freezer burn and the longer its stored in the freezer, the less benefit it has to the mother.
