I will come and collect a small amount of your placenta to make a mother tincture from (or alternatively you can drop it out to me) and the process will take about 6 – 8 weeks.
Note: I am a fully licensed, registered, classically trained homeopath. Unlike some other hompeopathic remedy makers I will make your remedy using the classical homeoapthy method as used by homeopathic pharmacies the world round; I will not be using a radionics machine which does not involve dilution and succussing.

I will then continue with the succussions and dilutions to make a 30c or 40c (your choice) placenta remedy in pilules, powders and medicating potency.
Please note that with this process you will receive a mother tincture but it will be only 10mls or less.
