Powdered placenta has been used in Eastern Medicine for centuries and is rapidly increasing in popularity in the west. Mothers all over the world report that ingesting placenta pills made their postpartum recovery easier overall.
Mothers report that they had lower occurrence of postpartum mood disorders, increased milk supply, and feel better overall.
Mothers who have had previous births where their placenta was not ingested reported being more tired and having longer recovery times without placenta pills compared to the easier recovery and increased energy while taking their placenta pills.

I use the Traditional Chinese Method to encapsulate your placenta. This method takes the Placenta and steams it with Lemons, Jalapenos, and Ginger. After this I take the Placenta and Dehydrate it at food-safe high heats to ensure safety. I then encapsulte them in vegetarian capsules. Your placenta capsules will be provided to you in a glass amber bottle, to help preserve beneficial properties. In Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, the process of labor and birth leaves the mother with an open, empty space which is considered very cold or yin. One way to promote healing during this time is to add warm energy via heat, or yang.

Some of the hormones that give the placenta its healing properties and what they do:
Gonadotropin: precursor to estrogen, progesterone and testosterone
Prolactin: promotes lactation
Oxytocin: for pain and bonding
Thyroid stimulating hormone: boost energy and helps recover from stressful events
Cortisone: combats stress and unlocks energy stores
Interferon: stimulates the immune system
Hemoglobin: replenishes iron deficiency and anemia
Gammaglobulin: immune booster
Safety, reliability, communication, and transparency are the core values of my placenta encapsulation practice.
