Placenta Encapsulation is the process of dehydrating the placenta and administering in capsule form, making consumption easy and mess-free! This will provide you with several weeks of wonderful healing benefits in those early postpartum days. We also offer a placenta tincture upon request so that you can continue to receive these amazing benefits through life’s many hormonal shifts for years to come - even through menopause!
Why would I encapsulate?
Postpartum. Also known as "The Fourth Trimester”.
It is fragile. It is beautiful. It is sacred.
You are no longer growing and carrying a baby on the inside, but that doesn't mean your body is no longer in high demand. You are experiencing hormone shifts, postpartum bleeding, fatigue from many sleepless nights, emotional highs and lows, as well as possible milk supply demands and changes.
While it is just as important to nourish and support your postpartum body as it was your pregnant and laboring body, it may seem absolutely impossible to find time for self-care now, let alone grabbing a quick bite to eat in the midst of countless feedings and diaper changes. Trust me when we say, it is all normal and you are not alone.
The good news is, simple acts of love towards your recovering body can be just that, simple.
Did you know that a natural, key component in healing and supporting your body through the fourth trimester can be found within the placenta YOU created to nourish and support your baby?

Who will be doing it?
My name is Meghan Boudreau - I am doula and placenta encapsulation specialist with River Wild. I am so honored to be apart of this amazing community and am looking forward to serving you!
I inherited my love for the birth world from my mother at a very young age. She has seven children, myself being the oldest, and the last three of her births were at home. Labor and babies were very normalized topics in our house. I had the honor of witnessing and assisting at my mother's home births, and thus, my passion and desire to serve pregnant women was born! My mother was the example of the strength and autonomy that I pray every woman comes to know within themselves through the transformative process of the childbearing year.
I live in Leander, TX with my amazing husband Colten, and our three wildly, wonderful children. On any given day, you will find our home full of giggles, dance parties, singing, coffee aromas, and home cooked meals - just the way we like it.
