When I became pregnant with my first child, I did more research on all of the natural ways to help a mother during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. As soon as I came across information about placenta encapsulation, I was so amazed by all of the benefits that I wanted to be a part of the movement to remove baby blues in women’s postpartum recovery. No one should have to waste one moment on the hormonal roller coaster postpartum when they are getting to know their new baby/ies and learning how to balance everything else in their lives with a baby in the mix. If this piece can be eliminated or at the very least, minimized, more women will have a much easier time getting back to “normal” after having their baby.
After having my son, I used my placenta pills to help me with:
- Emotional ups and downs: Anytime I started to feel emotional, I would take 2 pills and I felt like they kicked in within ten minutes of taking them. My husband called them my “happy pills”.
- Milk production: If I was having a low milk day/week and felt like i needed an extra boost, I would take 2 pills 2-3 times in a day for a few days.
- To help replenish iron levels: I have always been borderline anemic but towards the end of my pregnancy my levels were so low that my midwife threatened that I wouldn’t be able to have a home birth if i didn’t get my iron levels up (I did). So obviously, since I am also needing to give Iron to my son through breast milk, I needed whatever iron boost postpartum that I could get
And so much more!!!
