Can I Still Encapsulate My Placenta If My Baby Had Meconium?
This is a common question I receive. Yes, it is still possible to encapsulate the placenta even if your baby had meconium during birth. In these cases, the raw method of placenta encapsulation is not recommended. Instead, the Traditional Chinese Method of steaming the placenta should be utilized. During the steaming process, any bacteria present in the meconium will be killed and shouldn't be an issue. The placenta is also rinsed thoroughly before the process begins.
