It’s become all the rage among families all over Canada and with good reason; the anecdotal benefits of consuming your placenta are pretty impressive! Since reports of celebrities like Kim Kardashian and January Jones having their placentas made into capsules, this service has steadily gained in popularity.
Since my training with ProDoula, I have encapsulated countless placentas for Calgary parents who are excited about their experiences and can hardly wait to have another baby and do it again. Birthing people who have previously had children and did not encapsulate were particularly happy with their improved postpartum recovery the second or third time around!
All of this positive feedback from clients has me very excited about the service of placenta encapsulation. I am passionate about the support we offer to new families through placenta encapsulation in Calgary.
Perhaps, like many, you’re a little freaked out by the idea of eating your placenta! I’ll admit I was a bit unsure about the practice when I first heard about it. So why are Calgary parents choosing placenta encapsulation?
Consuming your placenta after giving birth is thought to:
- Reduce the risk of postpartum depression
- Lessen the “Baby Blues”
- Decrease postpartum recovery time
- Minimize postpartum bleeding
- Level out your hormones and moods
- Balance your milk supply
While there is not yet any solid scientific data to guide us, the feedback I have received from countless clients has me sold!
In addition to working with Chinook City Doulas to offer the safest placenta encapsulation services in the Calgary area, we include some special benefits you won’t find anywhere else. Our goal is to truly help reduce the risk of Postpartum Mood Disorders and improve your post-birth recovery.
When you choose Dulce Vida Doula to encapsulate your placenta you have the support of a postpartum doula during those crucial early days following birth. While we are in your home (the only safe place to have your placenta pills prepared), you are free to ask questions, access breastfeeding and bottle feeding support, and ask your questions about newborn care and your postpartum body. We’re experts on postpartum care for you, your baby, and your family.
But there’s more…
We also offer our clients ongoing wellness checks at strategic times throughout the first year. We’ll call you and see how you’re doing, answer any questions you have about your recovery, and provide you with referrals if needed. Just another reassurance that you’ll have the support you need should you encounter emotional complications after your baby is born.
