Why keep my placenta?
The placenta contains a massive amount of crucial hormones and iron that leave our body once the placenta is birthed. Cultures around the world have been doing it for centuries.
Is this just some kinda magic bean or are there real benefits?
Consumption of your placenta has 7 distinct benefits:
- Decreases baby blues & postpartum depression
- Reduces post-natal bleeding
- Replenishes B vitamins & increases energy levels
- Helps the uterus to return to its pre-pregnancy state
- Helps to balance hormones
- Replenishes depleted iron levels
- Decreases insomnia or sleep disorders
How can placenta encapsulation possibly help me to recover post-birth?
Swallowing dehydrated placenta helps your body to recover from birth by boosting immunity, lowering stress levels & encouraging the uterus to shrink back to size (which can help prevent excessive postpartum bleeding).
What if I’m worried about my milk supply?
Retaining your placenta in ground desiccated form increases and enriches breastmilk because it contains Oxytocin, which is responsible for the milk ejection reflex, or “let down.”
What if I struggle with fatigue & anxiety?
Reintroducing your placenta into your body in capsule form, helps new mom’s maintain their iron & hormone levels in the few weeks after the birth, which can speed healing, help curb fatigue & anxiety.
Can placenta encapsulation help me with baby-blues?
Consuming your placenta increases your energy levels because it contains a huge boost of easily-absorbable iron. Ingesting the iron-rich placenta is a good first line of defense against fatigue, baby blues and postpartum mood swings.
