It can be very normal to feel some mood changes during pregnancy and after the birth of your baby. Adjusting to motherhood is a wonderful, new experience that includes mental and physical changes especially during the initial postpartum period. Your hormones and body have a lot of readjusting to do and the placenta can help you through those adjustments. 

Your body just experienced amazing changes and gave birth to a beautiful baby. That was hard work and now it’s time to rest, recover, and bond with your little.

These hormones have been reported to help boost your energy and recover from the stress of labor, delivery, and adapting to motherhood. Ingesting the placenta is believed to decrease the incidence of the baby blues and postpartum depression, increase energy levels, shorten healing time, increase milk production, and provide an over-all feeling of wellness to a mother during her immediate postpartum period. This will give you the very best chance of a healthy mind and body as you enter your precious postpartum period.​ ​  

The Traditional Method: Your placenta is respectfully drained of blood and steamed with fresh lemon, ginger, and hot pepper (when food sensitivities are not present). Your placenta will then be thinly sliced, dehydrated, and ground for encapsulation. The placenta powder will be placed in vegan capsules for your consumption. Frankincense, myrrh, and ginger can be used in the steaming process instead if you wish or nothing at all.  

Raw Method: Your placenta is respectfully drained of blood and immediately sliced and dehydrated. The steaming process is skipped so it may require a longer dehydration time. Your placenta will then be ground for encapsulation and placed into vegan capsules for your consumption.
