Benefits of Placenta Encapsulation


Placenta Encapsulation

Placenta consumption offers many benefits to the postpartum mama. Below, I am detailing out some of the many benefits that can be gained from placenta encapsulation.

Oxytocin, prostaglandin, prolactin, estrogen, progesterone, vitamin B, endorphins, corticotropin-releasing hormone, serotonin


Placenta Encapsulation and baby blues

We have all heard of the Baby Blues. This occurs 3-5 days after baby is born and can last up to 3 weeks. Then there is postpartum depression which is just like baby blues, but much more intense and can last longer. Women who experience depression before having a baby are more likely to experience postpartum depression. The stress from pregnancy, labor, birth and dealing with a newborn can take a toll on a mama which is just one reason why placenta encapsulation can help.. 

With hormones all over the place after a giving birth, the lack of energy and our mood swings we can experience a range of emotions. The placenta can help stabilize them by ingesting it. Gaining all the nutrients the placenta has to help us. Giving us the energy to keep going during the day. Taking care of ourselves, so we can take care of others. Especially the tiny human who really needs our attention and time. 


Placenta Encapsulation and Milk Production

One worry we have sometimes is will I be able to produce enough milk for our baby. The placenta can help increase our milk supply. We might even have such a good stock pile that we can donate to other babies. What a wonderful gift to help other mamas out there struggling. 


Placenta Helps with Pain Relief

After pushing out a baby we don’t want to experience anymore pain than we need to. In the hospital you are typically given is tylenol, ibuprofen or motrin. Our placenta is a more natural way to help with the pain we experience. 

Another benefit the placenta can help is with our postpartum bleeding. Our postpartum bleeding can last a couple days, weeks or even until we have our first cycle. Besides staying hydrated and resting. Our placentas can help reduce our postpartum bleeding. Not just in the amount of time, but even how much.:

Its important to surround yourself with people who support you in your decision to consume and gain all the benefits the placenta can give you. Now you will still need to take your time to heal. Taking your placenta pills will help you heal, but its not a quick fix to get back to normal.
