Having been through many postpartum periods ourselves, we have experienced the value of how planning and preparing ahead of time can help promote a more positive experience for the entire family. While many think to plan out meals, visits from family/friends, and hiring postpartum support, another thing to consider is what to do with your placenta. Did you know that your placenta may help promote a more positive postpartum period through the process of having your placenta made into pills?
While placenta encapsulation services have most recently become a popular option for postpartum families, the reality is that placentas have been used for wellness for many years. Placenta encapsulation is based in Traditional Chinese Medicine and is used as an herb to bring healing and toning. The first recorded use of the placenta in Traditional Chinese Medicine is by Li Shi-Zhen in 1578.
