Placenta Encapsulation Services in Santa Fe, New Mexico

There are a variety of potential benefits to saving, drying, and encapsulating your placenta for ingestion after the birth of your child. The placenta contains vitamins and minerals that help fight depression symptoms, such as vitamin B6 and is rich in iron and protein, which is useful to women recovering from childbirth. It also balances postnatal hormones. The placenta’s hormonal make-up is completely unique to the mother.  No prescription, vitamin or herbal supplement can do what one placenta pill can. Encapsulation gives women an option who may feel uncomfortable with other methods of ingesting this powerful organ or want to reap the benefits of the placenta over a longer period of time. Powdered placenta has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries, and has also been used to help women through the process of menopause as well as postpartum.

The caps will give you energy, boost your immune system, balance and stabilize your hormones and your moods, replenish your iron, provide key minerals and vitamins, and enhance lactation and milk production. They will also remind your uterus that it knows how to heal and will stimulate your endocrine system, especially the hypothalamus gland to bring your body back to homeostasis and regulation. This is done by maintaining cortisol levels.

In my own experience, ingesting my placenta was the most effective and the most helpful tool I used in my postpartum period. This experience is also the driving force for providing this service to other women. Your placenta is a precious and essential gift your body provides for your baby during pregnancy. After birth, it becomes a gift to the mother as well.
