Hello, My name is Jill Capellino and I am a Certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist and Postpartum Doula serving the Orange County, Los Angeles, Inland Empire and San Diego areas since 2009. I earned my degree in Political Science, B.A. from the University of Santa Barbara. After working for several years in the corporate world I decided to make a change and move into the non-profit arena where I worked for the United Way of Orange County. Making a difference in my community is important to me and while this career path was very rewarding, I soon began a family 3 years later.
I am the proud mother of two girls and two boys. Like many mothers, I experienced a bad case of the baby blues postpartum. I had no idea why I felt so down during such an exciting time. My culturally traditional mother in-law had suggested consuming my placenta to help get my "me" back. I began researching placentophagy and that's where my journey as a Certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist began.
I received my Encapsulation Training though Placenta Benefits PBi and discovered a new passion. Through this work I have seen friends, clients, family members and myself avoid the baby blues, increase lactation, and fight fatigue after delivering. I've encapsulated for women who have taken prescription medication for PPD in the past now say they have zero need to go back to such medication after taking their very own placenta capsules. I can't tell you how incredibly gratifying these success stories are to me.
Being a mother has taught me how vitally important natural and healthy choices are, not only for my children but also for myself. I understand that this is a very personal decision and as a Certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist I am committed to providing both you and your placenta with the highest level of care possible. I am here to answer any questions you may have and am excited to share a piece of the motherhood journey with you! Thank you for visiting. Many Blessings, Jill
What Clients Are Saying
"My experience with Placenta OC and working with Jill has been an absolute joy. Jill was recommended by my OBGYN and a few mommy friends in my community. I looked into several placenta encapsulation businesses in the area and ultimately chose to go with Jill, not just based on the referrals but because of her promptness to respond to my inquiry and her thoroughness to detail in explaining her process. I am so glad I chose to encapsulate and glad I went with Jill. I've been taking the capsules religiously since giving birth over a month ago. I have a surprising amount of energy despite caring for a newborn and toddler. And emotionally I feel quite balanced. I highly recommend Placenta OC and the encapsulation experience" -5 Star Yelp Review by Chrystalin E. 4/2016
