When can't you encapsulate?
There are several reasons why we would not be able to encapsulate a placenta:
- Tainted placenta- absolutely no chemicals can be added to the placenta
- Fever in mother at time of birth or evidence of infection
- Group B Positive Test Result
- Left out without refrigeration for over 4 hours
- Maternal history of blood borne illness such as HIV, AIDS, Hepatitis, Herpes, STD's, etc
