Placenta Encapsulation in Berlin – Interview with Shanay Rocker, Doula in Berlin

Shanay Rocker, Doula in Berlin

In this episode I am joined by Shanay Rocker, a Doula in Berlin who has been practicing placenta encapsulation for years. Together we look at some of the myths and legends surrounding placenta encapsulation, as well as answering some common questions on how to go about it if you’re thinking of having some placenta capsules of your own.

Here are the topics we cover:

  • what exactly is placenta encapsulation?
  • how does it work from a practical perspective?
  • do hospitals allow to take your placenta with you in Germany?
  • which precautions do you have to take if you want to keep your placenta?
  • what are the benefits of placenta capsules


Whether you’re curious about this process or if you’re thinking about it for yourself, have a listen and let us know if you have any further questions on the topic!
