Placenta encapsulation restores valuable nutrients to mother, promotes faster healing and can help prevent post-partum depression. For thousands of years, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has viewed the placenta as a key medicine (known as zi he chi) that is invaluable for postpartum healing. Childbirth is an awesome event that can cause new mothers to experience blood loss, fatigue, and a drop in their high pregnancy hormones; all of which are thought of as key factors in the development of the “baby blues” and postpartum depression (PPD). The placenta is full of Qi — life force — which will replenish new mother’s bodies, naturally, when they need it most.

They are skilled at creating custom herbal formulas according the the constitution and particular needs of an individual at the time of treatment. A free consultation is included in the price of placenta encapsulation.

With this information they may add herbal medicines to augment the nourishing and restorative benefits of the placenta itself.
I just wanted to check in and tell you what an amazing thing the encapsulated placenta has been for us! My milk supply is way way way better than it was with Georgia, and although I’m as tired as you’d suspect with a newborn and a 2 year old, I haven’t had any big blues or postpartum fatigue. So, one million thanks to you – I’m a believer!
