BENEFITS OF PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION
For thousands of years mothers have consumed placentas. Various reasons have been given, but the positive effects have been seen time and time again. There are not yet any studies to prove the benefits, but ask any mom who has consumed her placenta and she’ll confirm that placentas are magical!
The placenta is rich in many vitamins and minerals, such as B6 and iron, as well as hormones, such as oxytocin, progesterone, and CRH, corticotrophin-releasing hormone. These elements help moms combat postpartum depression and the depletion of energy that is so common after having a baby. In the postpartum period consumption of placenta or placenta capsules is believed to help with:
Tissue regeneration (perineal tearing, episiotomy, cesarean)
Decrease in postpartum bleeding
Increase in milk supply
Healing and recovery from birth
Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life.
