Consumption of the placenta has been shown to hold many benefits for postpartum women. Each woman's body and birth experience is unique, and placenta encapsulation may benefit you in a variety of ways.
Balance your hormones & lower risk of postpartum depression Following birth, you lose the many useful hormones contained in the placenta that were produced during your pregnancy. It can take months for your body to balance these hormones again, but taking placenta pills helps reintroduce those hormones into your body in small doses, until your body resumes its natural hormonal balance. The placenta is extremely rich in iron and B6, which can be a valuable and natural resource to replenish these lost nutrients, and combat depression.
Boost energy and reduce bleeding The placenta contains many hormones and nutrients that have been found to increase energy and promote healing. It is rich in naturally-produced iron and protein, which can help replenish your nutrients following childbirth, reduce postpartum bleeding, and aid in healing of the uterus.
Increase breastmilk supply The placenta contains Human Placental Lactogen and Prolactin, which help prepare the mammary glands and stimulate milk production. These are often beneficial in successful breastfeeding of a new infant.
LuAnn takes great pride in the encapsulation process. Every placenta is treated with the respect it deserves. LuAnn follows proper labeling, handling, and sanitation guidelines. Handling this beautiful organ and preparing it for your consumption shouldn't be entrusted to someone inexperienced or who took a training online.
