As if being a birth and postpartum doula isn't interesting enough, a few years back I decided to throw placenta encapsulation in the mix too.
I have received many strange looks (and sometimes even gags) when I tell people that I prepare placenta pills for new moms. It isn't until I share with them the great benefits that the powerful placenta can have on a new mom that they have a greater appreciation. Ingesting one's placenta can aid in rebalancing hormones, increasing milk supply, shortening postpartum bleeding time, assisting the uterus to return to it's pre-pregnancy size and bringing the body back in to balance.
A truly fascinating human organ. To think that a woman's body grows this special organ to nourish the growing life within her.
The life connection between mama and babe. Miraculous and powerful!
