Service Description

Having your placenta encapsulated for consumption has a long list of benefits, from boosting your iron levels to increasing milk production. The placenta contains lots of goodness including: stem cells; 17 hormones; growth factors; iron; protein; trace minerals; the vitamin B complex; Vitamins A, D, K; amino acids and essential fats. After birth a mother typically experiences a dip in hormones because of the vast amount lost through the placenta. This causes that typical 3-5 day wobble where many mothers can get tearful and feel extremes of emotions. Placenta capsules can help support and assist the body after birth to repair, heal and replenish throughout the postnatal recovery period. Evidence shows that placenta capsules may: * Increase breast milk and maintain a healthy milk supply * Reduce and prevent baby blues and post-natal depression * Increase iron levels and prevent anaemia * Reduce the risk of postpartum haemorrhage * Reduce postnatal bleeding time * Rebuild essential vitamins, nutrients and hormones * Help the uterus return to pre-pregnancy size * Facilitate bonding with baby * Significant boost in energy The most important nutrients and hormones found in rich supply of the placenta include: * Growth factors * Iron – essential for oxygen absorption in the cells * Vitamins B6 – aids in the making of antibodies * Vitamin E – for healing damaged skin cells * Oxytocin Hormone – essential for facilitating birth and breastfeeding * Corticotropin Releasing Hormone (CRH) - responsible for reducing stress levels * Cytokines – fibroblasts that trigger cell metabolism healing and replacing damaged cells and tissue * Cortison - reduces inflammation and swelling After birth a mother typically loses a vast amount of these hormones and nutrients which are essential for the body to be restored naturally. Placenta capsules can help support and assist the body after birth to repair, heal and replenish throughout the postnatal recovery period.
