In that case, I will come pick up the placenta from your birth place on the day your baby is born and return the completed capsules to you when I am finished.

Payment, Cancellation & Refund Policy
- Payment in full is due before delivery of the capsules. - You may cancel this contract at any time but the $50 retainer is non-refundable and covers time spent prenatally and holding aside your space on our calendar. - If you cancel after I have picked up your placenta (or arrived for in-home preparation) but before preparation begins, I will return your placenta to you upon request and no further payment is required. - If you cancel after the encapsulation process has begun: the balance is due in full and no refund will be given even if you choose not to take delivery of the finished capsules.
- Talk to your care provider during a prenatal visit about your intended birth place’s policies in regards to releasing the placenta. Sign any forms required and have them placed in your file. - If you are birthing in a hospital: remind your care providers upon arrival that you plan to take your placenta and remind them again during pushing. - Put your placenta into a covered container, secured biohazard bag or double ziplock bag. The container must be labeled with your name before we pick it up. - It can remain at room temperature for up to 4 hours following the birth. Refrigerate or put it on ice as soon as reasonably possible. Improperly handled placentas are susceptible to spoilage. - Do not let the placenta out of your sight. I cannot encapsulate placentas that are examined in a hospital's pathology lab. - Call or text message me at (260)460-7686 after the birth to arrange a time to pick up the placenta. Please call as soon after birth as possible. - If you are not able to contact me within 4 days of the birth, freeze the placenta until you are ready for pickup. - Encapsulation and delivery takes 1-2 days for a refrigerated placenta. A frozen placenta may take additional time so that it can be safely thawed.
Two Day Turnaround Guarantee
I do my best to have your placenta back to you as quickly as it can safely be prepared. This is usually the day after I pick it up and sometimes the day following. Clients who sign this contract before labor begins receive a turnaround time guarantee. If I deliver your capsules on the third day after pickup or later you will receive a discount of $25. I may choose to have a backup encapsulator process your placenta if I have received more than one placenta at a time so that I can meet the turnaround deadline. Clients who contact me for encapsulation after labor begins will receive second priority to contracted clients and do not receive a turnaround guarantee, although I will still strive to return your capsules within 2 days.
