There are so many benefits to ingesting your placenta after your little bundle of joy is born! Here are just a few:
- Vitamin B6 and E
- Oxytocin hormone and Corticotropin-releasing hormone
In short, it’s supposed to help with healing and breast milk production as well has keeping you from having the mega hormone crash that is associated with postpartum depression and the baby blues. They are sometimes referred to as “Happy Mama Pills.”**
Rising Moon Birth Services has two options for placenta preparation;
This method of preparation is relatively simple. The placenta is drained of blood, sliced thinly, and the dehydrated. Once dried it is ground to a fine powder and encapsulated. This preparation is great for mothers who eat a raw food diet.
Traditional Method Style:
Your placenta is drained of blood and then steamed with lemons, fresh ginger, and hot peppers. After steaming, the placenta is sliced thinly and dehydrated. Once dried, it is ground to a fine powder and encapsulated. Any of the above ingredients can be eliminated if needed.
Your pills will be ready within 48 hours of receiving your placenta. All capsules are vegetarian based. Each placenta will yield roughly 50- 170 pills depending on the size.
Extras: You will also receive a keepsake made from your baby’s umbilical cord, prints made with the placenta, and a tincture. The tincture will be ready six weeks later.
Fee: $150 with $50 due with signed contract. Discounted rate for clients receiving doula services! I accept cash, check, or credit/debit card.
