The Nurturing Root can help.

Placenta Encapsulation Services

Proudly providing placenta encapsulation services in Cleveland, Akron/Canton, and greater Northeast Ohio area families.

Experience a more peaceful, restorative postpartum recovery with help from The Nurturing Root. Placenta is ancient medicine, re-discovered and cherished by new mothers. The root of your baby’s origin, her placenta, was made to nourish. It contains vital hormones, vitamins, and nutrients that can continue to benefit your body and mind after birth.

Your placenta is professionally prepared using the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) method. This practice has been revered for thousands of years, helping increase energy and support lactation. Other benefits of using the TCM method of encapsulation may include: improved mood, a faster and easier postpartum recovery, replenished iron levels, decreased incidence of ‘baby blues’ and postpartum mood disorders, and heightened sense of wellness.

Alayna Spratley, your placenta specialist, is honored to help you have the best postpartum experience. She offers the following services to Northeast Ohio families:

…but I loved having you there to chat with and explain to my Mom how awesome encapsulation is. We all appreciated your enthusiasm, energy and professionalism. Thank you!


I highly recommend The Nurturing Root’s services. She was highly professional, quick to respond to communication, and a warm, friendly presence in our home. Having my placenta encapsulated helped curb my crazy postpartum mood swings and I will definitely be calling The Nurturing Root for baby #2!


She explained the process in detail and answered all of my questions. I had severe postpartum depression with my first pregnancy, and this time I had no depression at all. My recovery was wonderful, and I was able to enjoy my newborn daughter and my family. Thank you for this experience. I would highly recommend placenta encapsulation to any postpartum mother.
