It is common for mothers to feel exhausted and emotionally fragile in the first few months of giving birth, due to the physical demands of having grown and given birth to a baby, breastfeeding and sleep deprivation.

Mothers who chose placenta encapsulation have reported:

  • a quicker recovery and reduced post-natal bleeding time

  • a richer milk supply

  • higher mood and energy levels in the first few months of having their baby.

Wouldn’t it be great to enjoy your baby moon with much more energy and emotional strength thanks to the amazing properties of your placenta?

"My placenta pills were fantastic! I found I didn't get the dip in hormones (around day 3-5) this time round postpartum and my mood was quite level overall for weeks. My energy was good too!  I can't recommend placenta encapsulation enough." Kim

Placenta Encapsulation could be particularly beneficial if you

  • want to recover fast and well, and feel physically and emotionally supported during this precious time.

  • are over 35 and have felt particularly tired and depleted during your pregnancy.

  • have a tendency towards anxiety and depression.

  • have suffered from low moods, energy levels and/or milk supply in previous pregnancies.

 

“I had such awful post natal depression with my first baby it was so painful emotionally and physically. I was so worried I'd feel the same with my second one. But I don't, I'm so happy and in love! I'm really sure placenta capsules are a big, big help! My skin is glowing and everything is healing so fast, no hot sweats, bleeding stopped within 1 week. So anyone out there who has experienced PND do look into encapsulating your placenta!”  Sandhya

Why does the placenta help promote a quicker birth recovery?

This is because it is so rich in the exact key nutrients a woman needs after giving birth, namely:

  • stem cells and growth factors which help heal the wound left inside the uterus and any other tissues needing healing such as the perineum.

  • iron and proteins which replenish the loss of blood incurred during labour and top up the nutrients lost through breastfeeding.

  • essential hormones women are naturally depleted in after giving birth such as the one that helps us deal with stress.

Hence why it would be such a shame not to benefit from what it has to offer you!

“I used placenta capsules from Julie for my two babies and it tremendously helped with energy levels, milk production, and hormone regulations. I would recommend it to anybody." Anne-Sophie

How did  I get into this?

I had heard about the exceptional healing and restorative properties of the placenta during my shiatsu studies as it has been used in Chinese Medicine for centuries, but I couldn’t even imagine how one could eat it! Until two of my long term shiatsu clients happened to have their placenta encapsulated for their second baby. First I thought that the idea of turning the placenta into capsules was just genius: what a simple and easy way to consume your placenta! I treated them both 3 months after they had given birth and was amazed at how much stronger they both felt compared to when they had their first baby! I immediately decided to train so I could offer this amazing service to more new mothers. I was then able to experience it myself when my little girl was born which has convinced me even more of the unique healing potential of the placenta.
