FAQ Friday: Placenta encapsulation in Cleveland, Ohio—do you pick up at my hospital?

Most likely, the answer is yes! I offer placenta encapsulation services within 40 miles of my office in Independence, OH. I have worked with many of the hospitals in Cleveland as well as the surrounding areas and have not encountered any issues in regards to release of the placenta. If you are planning to have a home birth, I am happy to provide placenta encapsulation services. Although my normal radius is 40 miles from Independence, I am able to provide services outside of this radius for a travel fee.

Here is a full (and growing) list of hospitals in Northeast Ohio that I have experience with:

  • Akron General
  • Fairview Hospital
  • Hillcrest Hospital
  • Mahoning Valley Birthing Center
  • Metro Hospital
  • Lake Health Tripoint
  • Lake West Medical Center
  • Parma Hospital
  • Southwest General Hospital
  • John’s Medical Center
  • Summa Health System- Akron, OH
  • University Hospital- Geauga
  • University Hospital- MacDonald Women’s Center
  • University Hospital- Ravena

While I have not had any issues picking up placentas for clients at these hospitals, there are some hospitals that will not release the placenta until the day that you are discharged.  The hospital system may require you to fill out a waiver for the release of your placenta. If you are wondering if this may apply to the hospital you plan to birth at, don’t hesitate to email me: drgesicki@clechiropractic.com or candacegesicki@gmail.com.
