Placenta Encapsulation

As much as 80% of women experience the postpartum blues, which is largely caused by wildly fluctuating hormones in the immediate postpartum period. The placenta is packed with vitamins and minerals and contains your own natural hormones that are perfectly made for you, by you. Research shows that the placenta retains hormones. Reintroducing them to your system is believed to ease postpartum and menopausal hormonal fluctuations.  Nearly every mammal will consume its placenta after its born.  There are various theories as to why.  While it would be pretty hard to convince most women to eat their placenta after birth, your baby’s placenta can be dehydrated and put into capsules to take during the postpartum period.  These capsules are believed to contain your own natural hormones, balance your system, replenish depleted iron, give you more energy, decrease postpartum bleeding, help you have a happier postpartum period and hasten return of uterus to pre-pregnancy state.  They have also been shown to increase milk production and they can be saved and used  during menopause to help with that hormonal transition.  To read more about benefits of placenta medicine go to http://placentabenefits.info/research.asp.  If you choose to encapsulate your placenta, we will take your placenta after the birth and arrange for encapsulation.

Here’s what one mother had to say about her placenta capsules:
” I just wanted to thank you for providing the placenta pill option and I want EVERYONE to know they need to get their pills. After that first day on the pills Corina I finally got my Oxytocin “high” that I lacked on birthday, my bleeding went down 80%, I have energy, I’m laughing, better attitude, nicer, happier, in love with Ian (finally), in love with Bobby (again) and just so happy we made the investment. To be honest I didn’t even really know the true benefits of the pills, about a week into my due date I stumbled upon an online add where there were talking about “weird: things celebrity moms love and recommend” and the pills were listed as “happy pills”. Won’t ever birth without them postpartum. So when you mentioned it, in my altered state, I was happy to say yes 🙂 and now I’ve done the research and feel like it was the best thing I could have done for myself. Due to the placenta being birthed too soon for my body to reap it’s afterbirth benefits luckily for me I can take it now and feel the joy of its power.”  -Melissa Torres
