Your placenta is an amazing organ that keeps your baby thriving in utero. It provides oxygen and nutrition to your help your baby grow. It removes the waste products created by the fetus.
In essence, your placenta plays a crucial role in pregnancy. But did you know that your placenta has the ability to continue to play a crucial role during the postpartum period?
While there are many ways to consume your placenta after you have birthed it, the most common method is through encapsulation. Ingesting your placenta by means of your capsules is believed to offer remarkable recovery benefits during the postpartum period.

- Increase in CRH, a stress reducing hormone that decreases the risk of postpartum depression
- Restoration of iron levels
- Increase in milk production
