Placenta encapsulation is one way to prepare for and love yourself well during the 4th trimester. Although it is an area that is in need of greater research, many women report positive effects associated with consuming their placenta (placentophagy). These benefits include:
hormone balance during the postpartum period (reduction of the risk of ppd)
increased milk supply
replenished iron levels
overall support during the 4th trimester

about the placenta:
The placenta is your baby’s main source of nutrients and oxygen while in the womb. It is comprised of both fetal and maternal material. It is what sustains your baby throughout the pregnancy through its intricate and life giving qualities.
about the encapsulation process:
The steps are fairly straight forward and simple. If I am your doula, I will bring your placenta home with me after your birth. If I am not your doula, we will arrange for me to pick it up from you as soon as possible. Essentially, I will be on call for your placenta ;)
Once I get your placenta home, I will rinse and drain it. Then proceed to dehydrate and encapsulate it! I will then deliver your capsules within 72 hours—complete with personalized instructions and recommendations.
The placenta is the organ that nourishes your baby in the womb—it is a wonderful option to let it continue to nourish you after your baby is born!
