About Placenta Encapsulation
Making capsules from a placenta sounds completely weird right? We totally get it! However, in many parts of the world, people ingest placenta. Certainly, this has been a normal part of the birth process for thousands of years. In contrast, people in our society may be a little more surprised about this idea of placenta encapsulation. But because mother and baby experience so many amazing benefits, encapsulated placenta should be considered by all!
Over 80% of new mothers experience some form of postnatal mood disorder after birth. Five days postpartum, a mother’s hormones drop to the levels she had before conception. This dramatic drop can cause many severe emotional and physical changes for the new mother. It can impact her postpartum time with her baby, potentially in a negative way. What ways do we mean? Things like baby blues and even worse, postpartum depression.
Placenta encapsulation prepares your body for your postpartum naturally. It also supports the most positive experience as you transition into motherhood.
Placenta Encapsulation Benefits for Mom & Baby
The placenta holds the hormones of pregnancy (Estrogen, Progesterone, and Prolactin). When the placenta comes out, so do all the hormones. Consequently, this drastic change can often cause a big dip in hormonal balance after birth. It can possibly lead to baby blues or even worse postpartum depression. Sadly, up to 1 in 7 moms experience postpartum depression. Placenta encapsulation allows the hormones to decrease at a slower rate, which allows the body to adjust more gently. This also reduces 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. For this reason, using placenta encapsulation after birth can bring in your milk more quickly and aid a struggling milk supply. It can also create a healthy milk production in the years ahead for a successful breastfeeding experience.
When you fall in love, your body releases oxytocin. That’s why people call it the “love hormone”. Oxytocin in placenta encapsulation helps with pain relief while Mom heals after childbirth. It also promotes the feeling of connectedness. Fall in love with your baby!
The placenta, full of iron, replenishes blood loss after birth. The 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.
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. Remember, the placenta is your natural hormone and your baby’s blood stem cells. As a result, 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 hot flashes, hair loss and just overall hormonal balance.
