The reason for these results lies in the ingredients of a healthy placenta. These include elements and minerals, hormones and prostaglandins that help the uterus to contract, and oxytocin, which reduces stress and triggers milk ejection.
As a trained placenta encapsulator, I enjoy offering this service to new mothers for the wide range of health benefits they may experience. I prepare the placenta in the client’s home with all my own tools. First, the placenta is prepared with spices and dehydrated overnight. Then I return to grind the placenta into a powder and place into vegan capsules which can be taken orally to increase positive moods, energy, healthy blood flow and milk supply, and to avoid difficult post-partum symptoms. Contact me for more information! Discounts exist for current doula clients.
