The placenta is one love: it is the bond of life between mother and baby. The placenta is the first organ to develop after conception. During pregnancy it does the amazing work of bringing oxygen and nutrients to the baby. Often little thought is given to the placenta, and few appreciate the marvelous complexity and profound importance of this organ that is often discarded and forgotten after birth. However, the elemental importance of the placenta remains after the birth. It is full of mood-enhancing hormones, healing chemicals and iron, which can be gradually welcomed back into your body. Preserving the placenta through encapsulation allows mothers the opportunity to access placenta power to aid in post-partum recovery.
Placenta encapsulation is a safe and effective process that offers women the following healing properties and benefits:
Increased energy in the days, weeks and months after birth.
Balanced emotions, less ‘baby blues’ and postpartum depression.
Faster involution of the uterus (return to normal size), and less bleeding.
Rapid healing time from birth tears or trauma.
Greater milk supply and ease of breastfeeding.
Restoration of essential hormones, nutrients & minerals.
