PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION

Placenta encapsulation is nature's way of helping women heal and restore energy after birth. The placenta produces all of the hormones during pregnancy; once it's delivered, you have a sudden and drastic drop in hormones. This can lead to decreased milk supply, sadness or "baby blues," fatigue, low iron, among other things. Placenta pills help to balance out your hormones and moderates your mood, energy, and physical healing leading to a happier and more energetic postpartum period. What's not to love!

 

Some benefits of placenta encapsulation are:

  • Increased milk supply

  • Increased energy

  • Helps to prevent postpartum depression and baby blues

  • Increased iron stores

  • Faster healing

  • Decreased postpartum bleeding
