Happy Clients

Why I love what I do!

“I chose you because the person who did my encapsulation last time was unavailable. I am actually more pleased with these capsules than the ones I had before. The placenta was much finer ground and encapsulated better (no space in capsules, they were all full and uniform). I worked for a Class A compounding pharmacy for many years so I know how to spot quality capsules. Communication before and after delivery has been excellent.”

“I had a wonderful experience using Alecia’s encapsulation services. She has a lovely and warm disposition upon meeting her shortly after my delivery- her timing was impeccable!  The kit she sent for the midwives to use for the placenta was impressive, and they all made a positive comment about how organized and convenient it was.  She delivered the capsules to my house about 36 hours later- a quick turn around. It was comforting to have them so quickly and know it would help me on my path to healing and adjusting. She went over the guidelines briefly in person for taking the capsules and sent a follow up email, as well (the guidelines are also available on the website, which I referenced frequently- very handy). Alecia is very organized and thorough, which is so fantastic when you are rapidly adjusting to life with a new baby. She takes care of it all for you. Bottom line, I would highly recommend her services!”

“Choosing Alecia to encapsulate my placenta was one of the best decisions I made during my pregnancy. She was wonderful to work with – easy to communicate with, helpful, very friendly – and she offered a more holistic approach to her services, which was completely in-line with our lifestyle. She strives to use the absolute best ingredients and healthiest “processing” practices, and offers a wide array of choices to get exactly what you want. Not only was I really pleased with her services, but she also took the time to follow up with me a couple times postpartum just to see how I was doing in general, and to make sure I was happy with my capsules/salve and answer any questions I may have had; it was so nice to know that she cared. If we decide to have another child, I will contact her in a heartbeat!”

“Alecia has the client’s satisfaction in mind regarding placenta encapsulation. Not only does she give you more options than the average placenta encapsulation specialist, but she also provides recommended guidelines for taking the capsules. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in this service.”

“I can’t even begin to tell you how much placenta encapsulation has helped me with healing physically and emotionally. Alecia took care of all my needs at a moment’s notice and had my healing package ready by the time we came from the hospital so that I could start taking the capsules immediately. I experienced postpartum depression and a knarly healing process after c-section with my first child so I was very interested in trying placenta encapsulation after having my second child in hopes that it would help. I’m so elated that I made the decision to go through with it because there was a drastic improvement in the duration of my physical healing and depression. Alecia made the process stress-free and seamless for which I’m so grateful…she is a gentle soul with a soothing demeanor and is a great resource for support of all kinds.”

D.G. - Kent, WA

“I spent a lot of time researching providers and once I found The Nurtured Leaf, I immediately knew it was the right choice. Alecia did not disappoint! Prompt, professional, warm. She delivers on every promise made. My husband and I have been so pleased with the quality of her products and her service.”

B.Z. - Tacoma, WA

“I was so impressed with the professionalism and kindness I experienced. The process was completely transparent, fast, and convenient. The placenta pills seemed to make a huge difference for my mental wellness with my second child. I didn’t experience the anxiety and depression I felt with my first. I will definitely be utilizing your services for my next baby!”

J.J. - Snohomish, WA

“I can’t thank you enough Alecia! The difference between my postpartum periods between my first and my second were like night and day, and I was expecting it to be much worse having TWO to take care of! I can only attribute that the the placenta pills. I am so happy, and have loved sharing my experience with all of my friends and family members who were a bit skeptical. But now they believe too! I am so happy I got the package with the herbal bath, tincture and salve. WOW, I loved everything. I am so thankful that I decided to get the tincture as I as really sad to go through all of my pills, but having that tincture on hand for the days that I need it has been a lifesaver! I loved the herbal bath and definitely feel like it helped speed up my healing and I have been using the salve on everything. It’s been a great diaper cream as well! Thank you so much!!!”

“Alecia is such a pleasure to work with, you can stop your search as you’ll be in good hands with her! I had researched lots of companies that did placenta encapsulation after hearing about it and wanting to try anything with my first child’s birth that was a scheduled c-section. Alecia was extremely prompt in her replies and also very thorough (compared to another company that just sent me a link to their website). She was also a dream to work with at pickup and drop off. I had such a smooth postpartum experience and I truly believe it’s because of the placenta pills! So many friends and family members have commented how great I look and seem to be doing and honestly, that’s the only thing I can attribute it to. I don’t have anything to compare it to being my first birth experience but it went so smoothly that we will absolutely be repeat customers with our next kiddo. Thank you thank you Alecia, you’re the best!”

“I HIGHLY recommend Alecia!!! I called her last minute after the doula who was supposed to encapsulate my placenta for me became ill and was unable to encapsulate it for me. I am SO THANKFUL that I found her! She was amazing throughout the entire process. She dropped everything at a moment’s notice for me, to come pick up our placenta last minute even though I had never contacted her until after I had given birth! It was a blessing in disguise. She was amazing. I am so thankful for everything she did for me. I felt like she treated me as she would a close friend. Alecia, I can’t thank you enough! Your passion for this work truly shines through. From the bottom of my heart, I appreciate everything you did for me!”

L.R. - Seattle, WA

“I spent A LOT of time researching Placenta Encapsulation and the various Specialists who offer the service in our area, and was so impressed with your website. It was very evident how much thought and care you put into the work that you do, and the services that you provide! I was so happy that you were available for my due date, and your service was amazing! From our very first interaction via email until weeks after you delivered my pills, you were there for me! I truly feel that my placenta pills and tincture made such a difference in my postpartum experience. The herbal bath was so relaxing to use, and I could feel a difference in how quickly I started to heal after using it! The herbal salve smelled incredible, and I am using it for everything! Again, thank you so much for the wonderful support you provided me!”

S.C. - Renton, WA

“The attention you paid to me and the care you put into the encapsulation was above and beyond! I can’t thank you enough! Thank you so much for all of your guidance throughout this entire process. You answered all of my questions, and made me feel at ease. I appreciate you coming directly to our home after the birth of our son to pick up the placenta, and then once again delivering my completed package directly to our home! You made the process so easy, and I didn’t have to worry about it at all – because there you were! I also appreciate you checking in with me after I started taking them. Seriously, you were so amazing. I can’t thank you enough! Everyone should be so lucky to have you provide this service for them!”

“I was telling my doctor about the severity of my postpartum depression after my first pregnancy and she recommended placenta encapsulation. At first I was super skeptical but after doing some research I realized how wonderful it could actually be. I started contacting different businesses that offered encapsulation and they all sent form emails with links back to their website based on my questions. Then I contacted Alecia and she responded quickly and answered all of my questions in a very personal way. All of my communication with her has been like emailing a friend. It makes it so much easier to trust that I am in good hands because it is obvious that she cares about her clients and is very committed to delivering a quality product. When I decide to have my next child I will definitely be encapsulating again and if I am still living in the Seattle Area it will definitely be with Alecia. I also purchased a tincture and an herbal bath . The tincture has been lovely as my daughter has been cutting teeth, I rub a little on her gums and it helps soothe her. I had an emergency cesarean so I was unable to use the bath. I gave it to a friend and she loved it!”

“I was dead set on doing this. Having 2 other children that were c-section I was moody after their birth. My husband did not want me to do it and thought it was gross. He told me to stop telling people that I was going to do it. His tune changed after about a week of me being super happy and not stressed about all the work that needed to be done around the house. Plus I wasn’t yelling at him about helping out more. After having 3 c – sections I knew my recovery would be slow and it wasn’t with the pills. I’m vary happy that I did it and I was able to enjoy the first weeks with a newborn and 2 children under the age of 5.”

C.W. - Black Diamond, WA

“Alecia was very caring, professional and timely. At a time were things were a crazy blur for me (first time Mom!), she was very responsive and diligent. The turn around was so fast and the samples of the Mothers Milk tea were wonderful, I loved it and drink it regularly now. As for the effects of the placenta; I was honestly a little on the fence on whether they would work or not but I figured now was not the time to risk anything, especially depression. So I went for it and was so happy with the result. I had the right amount of energy to get through the days (and nights!) and never once had a feeling of being down or sad, even when the fall/winter months rolled around. I saved a few of the capsules for when I returned to work (4 months later) and took them the first week, I am really happy I did that. I had the right amount of energy to get me through the day and felt like I was “firing on all cylinders”! I know I will choose encapsulation again and will be counting on Alecia for her services. Thank you, myself and family really appreciate it!”

“I had reached out to several placenta encapsulation specialists and had not received responses from a few of them. I did another search and found Alecia. She lived close by and I liked the look and feel of her website – it seemed professional but also warm and friendly. I emailed her and within an hour or two had a response answering all the questions I had asked. I was impressed with how quickly she got back to me and how thoroughly she answered my questions – it made me feel at ease and confident in working with her. Later that afternoon, my water broke and I had to have a c-section within just hours of reaching out to her. Alecia was very accommodating and was able to meet my husband at the hospital that night, despite the incredibly short notice. I was so appreciative that I didn’t need to worry about storing my placenta and that she made the process so easy. Alecia was great to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone considering placenta encapsulation!”

K.G. - Auburn, WA

“You were very flexible, and you were very quick to respond to text messages, as well as questions, even weeks after you had given me my capsules. The fact that you wanted to make sure I was ok, and that everything was well was very appreciated. I like that your service did not stop the moment you dropped off the pills! I had really bad baby blues with my first child, I cried all the time, hated the breastfeeding experience, wanted to give up several times. Was sleep deprived and hating life…. I expected that I would be even more exhausted once our second baby came along, and I really was terrified that I would have the baby blues with this one as well, So when I heard about encapsulation and read all of the benefits, I knew I was going to give it a shot. Let me tell you, I had ZERO baby blues or depression, My milk supply was amazing, and I had ZERO engorgement, completely different from the first baby. I had more energy (as much as you can with a new born!) Honestly it was the BEST decision I have ever made, and the best money I could have spent!”
