Why Should I Encapsulate?
Most mammals eat their placenta after giving birth! And it makes sense- your placenta regulates many essential hormones that are at an all time high during your pregnancy and birth. Once you give birth, out goes the source of those hormones, not to mention up to 1/10th of a woman's blood volume! Because of this many women experience a heavy energy and hormonal crash in their early postpartum period. Encapsulating and consuming placenta is a way to reintroduce hormones and nutrients into your body and offset fluctuations. Not only is placenta rich in your natural hormones, it contains high sources of vitamins, minerals, iron and protein which are all essential parts of the postpartum woman's diet.
