You will find regular posts on my site about placenta encapsulation.  That’s because I think it pretty much ROCKS and helps Mom postpartum in VOLUMES of ways.  Along with the links I post below that discuss the benefits of placenta encapsulation and how AWESOME it truly is…… You can go to my PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION page and learn more about my services.

I do very much love the fact that a women’s body is capable of producing such WONDERFUL medicine for herself and her baby.  Not only does placenta ingestion aid in SO many AMAZING things for the Mom… also helps get more nutrients and enzymes to baby.  Your placenta is PACKED full of glorious enzymes, rich in vitamins and minerals, and FULL of OXYTOCIN the LOVE hormone that helps to bond you and your baby.

“Though few scientific studies have been spent on placentophagia itself, the combined existing research suggests that ingesting the iron-rich placenta may be a good first line of defense against postpartum mood problems.”

“Giving…placenta to a new mother following birth has become standard protocol among a growing number of midwives in the United States. By nourishing the blood and fluids, endocrine glands and organs, Placenta will …reduce or stop postpartum bleeding, speed up recovery, boost energy and relieve postpartum blues.” Homes, Peter. 1993.

I recently had a midwife contact me with a client who had SEVERE postpartum depression.  The mom had been beside herself at the thought of having to deal with such emotional uproars while trying to take care of a newborn and her family.  The midwife contacted me because she had heard that I process my placentas in such as way as to retain ALL of the vital nutrients, enzymes and hormones. Along with how I add  HERBAL FORMULAS to my placenta encapsulation that I believe help BOOST, even more, Mom and baby both hormonally and emotionally, but physically as well.  
I ask all my placenta encapsulation clients to contact me and let me know how well their placenta worked for them.  Very few people remember to do this, which I totally understand, but this fabulous midwife took the time to call me and let me know how the 2 week postpartum visit went with her client.  And…..let me tell you, I was SO GRATEFUL she did.  
She stated that her client said she was feeling AMAZING!  This was her clients 5th pregnancy and she never knew she could feel so LOVELY after having a baby.  Her emotions were under control and she was feeling happy, content and at peace, along with her physical healing being much quicker and better than it had been in subsequent pregnancies.  
It is SO MUCH FUN for me to hear this.  The reason I LOVE what I do with placenta encapsulation is because it’s NOTHING that I do that makes the difference as to why so many new Mom’s find such healing.  It’s EVERYTHING she does during her pregnancy that makes that placenta so effective and efficient in helping her heal and feel normal and happy.  
What she eats, if she exercises, her daily routines and habits all play into the health of her placenta and it’s ability to do it’s job extremely WELL, all depend on the Mother and the responsibility she takes of her pregnancy and birth.  Yet again, ANOTHER reason to decide that YOUR in charge and you can have an BLISSFUL and GLORIOUS pregnancy and birth. 🙂
In Peace, Rachel
