Childbirth can be one of life’s greatest experiences, both physically and emotionally. It is also both invigorating and depleting, regardless of how you give birth.
The postpartum healing and recovery period is a critical time for supporting your body while you transition from pregnancy to motherhood.
Everything your baby needs during pregnancy is either produced in or travels through your placenta. It is filled with nutrients and hormones that help your baby to thrive. After birth, you can nourish your own body from this same abundant supply.
Mother’s Report the Following Benefits from Placenta Encapsulation:
• Quicker post-birth healing and recovery
• Increased milk supply
• Minimized postpartum bleeding
• Feeling more balanced and happy
• Improved sleep
• Lower pain levels after birth
• Increased iron levels
• Feeling more mentally clear and alert
• Feeling more calm and less stressed or anxious
Many moms who have battled postpartum depression or, the “baby blues”, after a previous birth also report that problem being completely eliminated, thanks to their placenta pills. Skeptics become believers once they experience it for themselves!
“The day I came home with my baby from the hospital, I remember crying about everything, feeling overwhelmed, and like I had been hit by a truck. Amy delivered my placenta capsules that same day, and I started taking them. By the morning I woke up feeling like the clouds had cleared, and I was happier with renewed energy to enjoy my baby. It was such a big difference!” Nancy R.
“After experiencing awful postpartum anxiety after my first son was born, I cannot emphasize enough how much I believe placental encapsulation helped me recover better physically, hormonally, mentally, and emotionally after the birth of my second child.” Mary W.
“With my first baby, my milk took 5 days to come in. After that, I made just enough to feed my baby but it was a struggle some days. With my second baby I tried placenta encapsulation, and my milk came in so quickly! And I had such a full supply that I was able to pump extra every day to save. It was such a relief!” Kelly W.
Is placenta encapsulation safe? That depends on who is doing the processing and what type of standards they have. I follow all OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) guidelines, and Food Safety Handling Standards. You can trust me to know exactly how to handle your placenta in a way that protects your health.
In May 2018 the largest meta study of its kind, involving 23,000 mothers, concluded that mothers who consumed their placenta passed on no harm to their newborn babies when compared to infants of mothers who did not consume their placenta.
High Quality Training and Certification
I have completed over 200 hours of training in placenta preservation and and medical preparation techniques. I am also fully trained in food safety and hold a Food Handlers Safety certification. I have completed a blood borne pathogens training specifically designed for placenta encapsulators that is Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) compliant. I am Certified to prepare placentas through APPA “The Association of Placenta Preparation Arts”. This is the most rigorous placenta preparation training available and holds its practitioners to extremely high standards.
