Placenta encapsulation is a popular practice in postpartum care, as it is believed to have many benefits for postpartum recovery. At its most basic, the process involves taking the placenta, which nourished the baby during pregnancy, and dehydrating it, grinding it into a powder, and then placing it into capsules for consumption. Many other styles and types of remedies can be created from the placenta, however.
There are several reported benefits of placenta encapsulation, including increased energy, improved mood, and faster postpartum healing. Some people also report an increase in milk production, and a decrease in postpartum bleeding. Additionally, the placenta is a rich source of hormones such as progesterone and oestrogen, which can help regulate the hormonal cycle after giving birth. The placenta has created an hormonal ecosystem within the body which has been sustained for nine months, and which ceases to exist immediately upon placental delivery. Through careful preservation and preparation into managed portions, the placenta can be reintroduced into the body in order to ameliorate this enormous transition in state from pregnant to postnatal.
It is vital to research and speak with an appropriately trained and experienced healthcare professional before making the decision to try it. Practitioners should have been trained by a body with appropriate accreditation from a body such as the Placenta Remedies Network, have up to date health, safety, and food preparation certificates, and sufficient experience in this niche field. This will ensure that your placenta is properly prepared and handled to avoid any potential risks or contamination.
Those interested in placenta encapsulation should use the look for a trained and certified professional with the Find a Specialist search feature on the PRN website. It is also important to note that placenta encapsulation may not be suitable for everyone and should be avoided in certain situations. For this reason, it is vital that you check with your chosen Specialist if your own personal circumstances are in any way contraindicative to the creation of placenta remedies. Do remember that even if one type of remedy is not suitable for you, your Specialist will be able to recommend product options that are appropriate for you.
Overall, placenta encapsulation is a personal choice and should be carefully considered in consultation with a healthcare professional. With such incredible benefits, though, what are you waiting for!?
