Why Placenta Encapsulation?
Does making capsules from a placenta sound a bit weird? We totally get that! Over 80% of new mothers experience some form of postnatal mood disorder after birth and 1 in 7 moms experience postpartum depression/anxiety. Placenta pills, tiny in size, but can have a big impact on improving your postpartum experience.
The hormonal loss after birth happens when the placenta comes out, so the benefits of placenta encapsulation come from replacing the hormones lost at birth. Taking placenta pills naturally brings more balance and emotional well-being to parents after birth.
Who is Placenta Encapsulation For?
We work with birthing parents from every walk of life. Type A parents… crunchy hippie parents… corporate business parents… hospital and home birth parents… planned cesarean parents.
They all have one thing in common: they are hoping for an easier postpartum experience. No matter who you are or what your values are, having a baby is challenging. Placenta encapsulation could be part of your postpartum preparations for a more positive transition.
Placenta Encapsulation Benefits
The placenta holds all the hormones of pregnancy (Estrogen, Progesterone, and Prolactin). Placenta encapsulaton replaces these hormones after birth and helps the body feel emotionally balanced. Hormone balance also reduces baby blues, sleep disorders, “night sweats”, mood swings, and persistent crying.
Increases Milk Supply
The placenta is filled with Prolactin, the hormone responsible for creating milk supply. Many moms report that the Placenta pills helped bring in their milk more quickly and increase milk supply.
The placenta, full of iron, replenishes blood loss after birth. Studies have shown that iron in placenta encapsulation can help increase energy in postpartum and alleviate the feeling of fatigue. It can also reduce postpartum bleeding, which helps prevent anemia after birth.
Feeling Grounded & Calm
They placenta is full of Oxytocin, called the "love hormone". Oxytocin in placenta capsules helps with pain relief and brings feelings of calm, reduced anxiety, and feeling grounded. Many moms report "just feeling like myself" in a positive way with the placenta pills.
Lifelong Natural Remedy for Mom & Baby
Parts of the placenta can be made into a tincture and used when mother or baby experience any stress, mood swings, anxiety, fatigue, illness or PMS. Being filled with stem cells, placenta encapsulation can support the immune system of both Mom and baby in the years to come.
Because the placenta is your perfect hormone, tinctures can be used down the road as a natural hormone replacement for the transition into menopause! Placenta encapsulation can aid in menopause and symptoms of hot flashes, hair loss and just overall feeling of well-being.

"I struggled with depression for years and was very worried about postpartum depression. I wanted to do anything natural I could to avoid more pharmaceuticals so my midwife suggested I look into placenta encapsulation. I found Baby Nest and they were so helpful in guiding me through the process and answering all of my questions. The placenta capsules were an amazing support to me emotionally!
