The total yield of capsules often depends on the size of the baby, and the size of the placenta. Both are usually relative to each other. The choice of encapsulation method (see table below) will also effect the total yield.
For example, a 3.3 kg baby with a relative sized placenta will result in approximately 90 – 120 capsules using the TCM method, or approximately 120 – 160 capsules using the Raw Prep Method.
From experience, the total capsule yield has ranged from 60 to 260 capsules! Most women will receive enough capsules to last between 4 – 8 weeks postpartum, and perhaps to store away for future use.
