Testimonials

“Marissa encapsulated my placenta and prepared a tincture. Such a great investment!! She came a few hours after I messaged her, and was amazing at explaining the process and gave us a little crash course on how the placenta functions. She is so knowledgeable and personable. She gave us a few colored impressions of the placenta and a cord keepsake. She offers a huge variety of options as well. I was able to choose a flavored capsule to make the pills easier to take, but she also offers chocolates and tinctures (I opted for a tincture in addition to my pills). She stays in touch to make sure the pills are doing their job and you don't need any dosage adjustments, which I very much appreciate! I am a little less than 2 weeks postpartum, and I feel that the pills helped me a ton with recovery and absolutely help with my energy levels, which is great because I have a very active toddler too. I am so satisfied with her services, and really glad I found her!!” -Natalie L.

“I hired Marissa to make my placenta pills. I can't begin to express how happy and comfortable she made us.This was my first time turning my placenta into pills. Marissa walked me through every step and was extreamly knowledgeable about the process. I would hire her in a heartbeat if I have another child. She became more then just a doula but a friend. She would do check ups to make sure everything was going smoothly. Marissa goes above and beyond what's expected. She is kind, patient, and welcoming.” -Angelica L.

"[Marissa] is caring and professional and wonderful to work with. She communicates very effectively, always responded to me promptly and answered all of my questions clearly and in language I could easily understand. When she came to my home to encapsulate my placenta, she took great care to sanitize everything and explained every step of her process, and worked diligently to produce a high quality product. She was also very personable and wonderful with both of my children. I would absolutly recommend her to other expectant mothers because she is great to work with and her products are a valualble part of postpartum recovery." - Melissa F.
