Benefits of Placenta Encapsulation

Placenta Encapsulation

Placenta capsules, an easy way to gain the benefit of the placenta.

 

Using a mother’s placenta for postpartum healing is quickly gaining in popularity.  The practice of ingesting one’s placenta post birth may seem bizarre to some, but the list of believed benefits are nothing to casually dismiss, making placenta encapsulation/preparation a valuable consideration for birthing families.

Some of the benefits are believed to include;

  • Prevention and lessening the risks of postpartum depression, and “baby blues”.
  • Replenishes iron stores from blood loss during birth.  Low iron often results in low hormone levels, fatigue, lack of concentration, and symptoms of depression.
  • The lending of a consistent flow of oxytocin long after the birth euphoria ends, a great mood enhancer!
  • Provides the “HPL” hormone, helping to establish early and healthy milk supply.
  • Stabilizes the ever changing hormones post birth.
  • Replenishes B vitamins and energy that were used up during the labouring and birth process, nourishing the body.
  • Protects from infection and bleeding due to retained placenta tissues or membranes.
  • Offers natural pain relief from the labour and birth of the baby.
