“Sara Pereira is the only person I recommend for placenta preparation. We went to Chinese Medical school together, and I can’t rave about her work enough! She is certified in placenta encapsulation, she follows the letter of the law in terms of safety and OSHA compliance, and she brings a generous and loving spirit to each preparation. Sara is always eager to take on more placenta clients, and is very diligent about follow-up. I always know, when I refer patients to her, that their placenta capsules will be the core of the post-partum herbal regimen that I prescribe.”
-Abigail Morgan, L.Ac.

“I felt terrific physically and emotionaly from taking the placenta pills right after my baby was born. I had heard of this before, it made sense but seemed too out there. I didn’t want to eat my placenta in a sandwich on a plate.  When I met Sara – who for someone who is doing something far outside the mainstream, she was suprisingly “normal” and I could relate to her.  I learned she put the placenta in pill form.  That I could do.  With my first child I didn’t ingest my placenta.  I was more weak and fragile physically and emotionally.  When I took the placenta pills after my second birth I felt a big difference.  Of course I had a natural elation and deflation for a few days but I felt like a superwoman. It was an easy process, the hospital, Cedars Sinah had heard of this and were helpful.  I wish I had more!”
-Ione Skye, actress

“I simply cannot say enough wonderful things about Sara.  She has done prenatal massage for me during my pregnancies for the last 2.5 years and she prepared my placenta from my last birth and will be doing it again for this birth.  She is kind, caring, loving and has a big, big heart.  And it most definitely shows in her hands on work.  My son (my last birth) broke his collar bone on the way out and the pediatricians couldn’t believe how quickly it healed.  I personally believe that it mostly due to ingesting my placenta and the healing properties it provides.  I also didn’t have a bit of the baby blues this last time around.  I recommend Sara hands down when it comes to massage and placenta encapsulation.”
-Michelle

“I became very interested in placenta encapsulation when I heard of all the benefits it could have.  My sister had milk supply issues and my best friend had horrible postpartum, so I thought I would be pro-active and give it a try.  I met Sara at a parenting class and what I was most impressed was how “normal” she was.  Then I was recommended to her by my acupuncturist and I was sold.  The whole process was simple as I didn’t even know it happened.  I took the recommended dosage and I don’t know if I am really a lucky person or it was the placenta but I have had plenty of milk supply, and zero depression.  I definitely recommend encapsulating your placenta to all pregnant women and Sara is the woman to do it.  And to top it all off, she gives the best massage ever!”
-Tamara

“Upon our first meeting with Sara, my husband and I knew we wanted to hire her as our doula and we are so glad that we did! I was determined to have a natural birth. I had a long and somewhat difficult labor and may not have made it through without getting a c-section if it wasn’t for having an excellent birth team. Sara was the key figure in helping me through it! Through acupressure, massage and the use of essential oils, she was able to help me redirect some attention away from the pain. She was such a positive support throughout what became a test of endurance for me and everyone involved in helping me birth my son. Her kindness and sense of humor were much appreciated and welcomed. We will definitely hire her for baby #2 -wouldn’t want to do it without her! Thank you Sara!”
-Amy R.

“Sara Pereira was my Certified Encapsulation Specialist in April 2009 and she was very kind, knowledgeable, professional, and non-intrusive while she was in our home. I took the placenta pills as she directed and did not experience the baby blues. I would highly recommend Sara.
-Molly

“I’m doing great! Who knows if it was the pills or not, but I feel fabulous – much better than with the other two births. No depression, great milk supply and I’m waiting to see how the hair thing goes.”
-Julie

“Sara, thank you so much for preparing my placenta. I had never even heard of this process before I visited your site and I am fascinated by the procedure and the benefits. Thanks for making it so easy and working with my girlfriend for delivery and coming to my house to do the prep. My recovery has been great. No depression and my skin has looked great. I’m 4 1/2 months out and am thinking about taking the rest of my pills now as I am definitely sleep deprived and my guess is these will help me get through the rough nights. I will spread the word to my soon to be mommy friends. THANKS AGAIN!”
-Shannon

“The capsules have been great, I am just finishing them up! I have felt wonderful so I am guessing they did the trick.. I was very worried because I do suffer from depression and was concerned about post-partum, but I have been very even keel and happy. Thank you so much! I will certainly pass your info on and use you again for our next pregnancy!”
-Natalie

“I had the opportunity to work with Sara during my pregnancy, it was both healing and nurturing to me and my body, she was sensitive to my needs and is truly a healer.”
–Renee Stahl

“When I found out I was pregnant my husband and I knew we wanted to do something special with the placenta, we had talked about burying it and planting a tree for the baby. The thought of eating my own placenta was a bit of a turnoff until Sara explained to me the process of dehydrating and placing it into capsules. I brought it up with my OB/GYN, she said that it is in fact very nutritious for a new mother and baby, extremely high in protein and not at all uncommon in her practice. I was released from the hospital the day after my son was born and the pills were waiting for me when I got home. This is my first child, so I don’t have anything else to compare it to, but I wouldn’t do it any other way. I did not suffer from post-partum, I am back to doing yoga, the baby is happy and healthy and so am I.”
-Claire Weiss, photographer

“Massages always seemed so decadent to me, a once-a-year kind of indulgence. But ever since my first massage with Sara Pereira, I’ve been treating myself to her healing hands nearly once a month. Less gifted massages can feel mechanical or phoned-in, hands pushing around flesh. But Sara’s massages are truly a thing of transcendence. They’re not just physically healing, but deep and transporting, a spiritual journey. You rise from her table as if arriving back to earth after time away, gleaming, shiny and new. Treat yourself.”
-Darren Stein, writer

“I am privileged to have experienced Sara Pereira’s masterful blending of exceptional massage skills with a nurturing, loving care for her clients. Throughout your entire session, Sara considers your comfort and enjoyment and intuitively adjusts to make your massage blissful. I was pleasantly surprised to be swept away to a deep meditative state of calm within the first few minutes. Her massages are unique and artfully composed through an esoteric mix of technique and style. Her pressure and strokes are hypnotically rhythmic, never mechanical, and do not follow a predictable pattern as expected in a typical “spa” massage. Best of all I leave feeling relaxed refreshed and nurtured, ready to be a part of the world again.”
-Aiden Chase, Healer/Inuitive

“I met Sara when I was going through a very painful time in my life. As I began to work with her on a regular basis, I had a new respect for the mind, body connection. Her work is intensely focused and completely connected. Sara has a very special, peaceful, passionate touch that helps the body shift its energy into a total positive balance. I have noticed positive changes in my life since doing bodywork with her. I encourage others to experience her wonderful touch.”

-Wendy M. Schwartz, LMFT

  1. I asked Sara to encapsulate my baby’s placenta a few months before giving birth. It felt intuitive to me that the placenta that gave my daughter nourishment for so long should not be discarded as waste just because the pregnancy is over. Sylvie is 5 days old now, and so far it is obvious to me that the placenta’s magic is working. I started taking the placenta right away, and am surprised that it is so easy. I expected a strange taste, or a queasy feeling…something, but all I have is energy and more energy. Despite the sleep deprivation, phonecalls, diaper changes, and all the time spent gazing at her adoringly, I feel great. Our family has been out since day 2 every day for either a walk or an outing, we even went to the hometown fair! Everyone remarks, you look so vibrant already! The most important thing on my mind right now, is making sure that my milk is coming in and that Sylvie is gaining weight. Well, I’ve been to the lactation consultant for some fine tuning, twice now, and she cannot believe how much milk I have. Today, after twenty minutes of feeding, I still had an abundance. Sylvie drank 1.6 oz from just one side, and the lactation lady gasped and said, “Now, I’ve been doing this a long time, and I don’t think I’ve EVER seen that much milk from one breast before.” There is nothing more satisfying than knowing your child is thriving from your healthy body. Thank you Sara, I know the placenta is a big part of mine and Sylvie’s vitality.

  2. I am a first time Mom and had heard many stories about mothers experiencing postpartum depression. I wanted to enjoy my baby after he was born without having to experience negative mood swings, and that’s when I learned about placenta encapsulation. I thought that it sounded like a wonderful solution and there wasn’t any reason not to try it. When I inquired at the hospital about saving my placenta they said they needed to take it away right after birth for examination as part of their regular hospital procedure. I was worried that I would not be able to encapsulate my placenta after the lab procedures because it could be ruined. I then asked my encapsulation specialist Sara Pereira about this and she informed me that there are waiver forms available so that patients can avoid this lab procedure and retain the placenta for their own use. That is exactly what I did and I was able to have my mother take it immediately home for me.

    The next day Sara started the encapsulation process, and since I was still in the hospital my Mother met with her at my house. The following day after I returned from the hospital, I met Sara and she finished the process. She was very nice and answered questions that I had and shared with me many of the benefits of placenta encapsulation. I would recommend Sara and placenta encapsulation to anyone who is considering trying it. I started the pills right after she finished making them, and I took them exactly as was suggested. Even after a very long labor and bad tearing I did not suffer from postpartum depression. My milk came in quickly and my baby put on a healthy amount of weight with out needing any supplementation. He is now almost 2 months old and we are still both doing great. I want to say thank you for helping make placenta encapsulation widely available and helping women avoid unnecessary suffering from postpartum depression after childbirth.

My patients have found her to be very easily reachable by phone, email, web, and Facebook, and they always thank me for introducing them to her!

  4. I’m doing great! Who knows if it was the pills or not, but I feel fabulous – much better than with the other two births.

    No depression, great milk supply and I’m waiting to see how the hair things goes. Around three months I usually loose a ton of hair. Hopefully that won’t happen this time. I still have a few pills left and I figure I’ll take them if I feel down, tired or notice lots of hair loss.

    Thanks so much!
