Happy Clients

Why I love what I do!

“I was on the fence about encapsulation after all this is my 5th child and had never done it prior. My best friend did it and said I should try it, so I went with it. First off I would like to say the service was outstanding, quick and efficient, even in the snowy weather we were experiencing. It wasn’t until 2 weeks postpartum when I forgot to take them that both my husband and myself could see a change in myself. I was completely emotional and crying over the littlest things. It dawned on me that I hadn’t taken my capsules and soon as I got back on track I was happy and no more tears!”

“I always knew I wanted to get my placenta encapsulated but during pregnancy I became super depressed. I didn’t do much preparation. I decided I really wanted them 5 days before being induced. I didn’t think it would happen but Alecia made it happen! She made the process of packaging my placenta easy and was amazing when she came and picked it up. With everything that is going on when your having a baby, I didn’t worry about this not one bit. I got my capsules back way quicker then I thought and she delivered them herself to where ever I needed. Her customer service is just amazing. I was so happy with how much care she put into this whole process. I’m so happy I got my capsules. I was a strong candidate for ppd and I’m now 3 months pp and I’m so happy. I think the placenta pills did wonders for my mental health. I felt like I had more energy with learning how to be a mom and dealing with the anxiety of staying home. I healed so quickly, I stopped bleeding 2 weeks pp and stopped feeling pain within a couple days! I was really worried that when I run out of them I would become severely depressed and that’s just not the case! I would recommend all moms to get their placenta encapsulated and I would 11/10 recommend Alecia the nurtured leaf! Shes all around amazing and so is the capsules!

I can’t thank her enough and I will be going back to her when I’m ready for another!”

“From first contact to capsule delivery, you were incredibly professional, compassionate, clear and easy to work with and we were impressed with how quick the process was. Your website was easy to use and navigate. You always answered our questions and responded to our emails quickly. The whole hospital experience and delivery of baby can be so overwhelming and you made the handoff of placenta easy and stress free. You delivered the capsules to our home just 2 days after we gave birth and I was able to begin taking them immediately. Thank you for your kind heart and incredible work, we will absolutely use you for future encapsulation services!”

“I am so happy I decided to do placenta encapsulation with Alecia. She was so friendly, informative, and personable. She has quality expertise, service and products. It is very evident she takes pride in her work and her clients. I am so happy to have had her encapsulate my placenta. She made me feel comfortable when asking questions and giving me informative responses.”

K.M. - Kent, WA

“Ms. Alecia is absolutely amazing, she was very attentive to us before during and even after the birth of our first little one. Her knowledge for her services is amazing as well. With her we felt we definitely got what we paid for, it was also nice to have such a personal experience during a very special time in our lives. 12/10 would recommend.”

J.P. - Enumclaw, WA

“Alecia was so helpful with the process start to finish. She was quick to provide insight and information on any questions I had before and after delivery. The whole process was so easy! She was able to come and pick up the placenta a few hours after birth, and had all of my capsules ready less than 48 hours later delivered to my house. I am so pleased with the results. I needed no painkillers after birth and healing was quick. I felt extra energy and a positive mood even with a lack of sleep. My little one has been breastfeeding like a champ and I totally believe that the capsules helped with this. I would highly recommend The Nurtured Leaf and plan to work with Alecia again in future pregnancies.”

A.N. - Puyallup, WA

“I have used Alecia’s encapsulation services with both of my pregnancies and could not be more satisfied. Not only did I receive significant benefits. (That were very apparent on a couple days I managed to forget to take them) but Alecia is a such a joy to work with. I even put her services on my registry the second time!”

A.P. - Milton, WA

“My recovery and postpartum period has been completely different this second time around than it was with my first & I believe the placenta encapsulation has a lot to do with it! I have more mental clarity, less anxiety, quick healing, and less mood swings. I wish I had known about it with my first baby.”

K.B. - Olalla, WA

“Alecia is a gentle and warm person who takes great care to ensure you feel supported in your journey. I really appreciated all her time checking in on us, making sure I knew when and how to take my capsules. I felt so much more emotionally balanced by about week 3 and more energy as well. The packaging is beautifully calming and the turnaround time was awesome. Thank you for all your support!”

M.N. - Bellevue, WA

“I was a little bit hesitant to encapsulate my placenta, mostly due to judgement of my close friends and family who hasn’t ever experienced or heard of doing it, but I couldn’t have been happier with the results I got from doing it. I didn’t need any painkillers after birth, I only took these. That alone should say something! I got horrible postpartum depression after giving birth to my son after I was unable to breastfeed. This time around with my daughter, after taking these not only did I not get postpartum depression at all, but breastfeeding has been a breeze. My only regret in all of this is not getting it done my first pregnancy!”

S.R. - Orting, WA

“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.”

N.S. - Des Moines, WA

“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!”

A.W. - Kirkland, WA

“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!”

A.E. - Seattle, WA

“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.”

K.S. - Renton, WA

“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!”

S.A. - Seattle, WA

“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!”
