The placenta’s hormonal make‐up is completely unique to the mother. No prescription, vitamin or herbal supplement can do what one placenta pill can. During pregnancy the placenta takes over hormone production for the body. By the end of the pregnancy the placenta is creating more than three times the amount of pre‐pregnancy hormone production. After the birth it takes some time, usually 6 to 8 weeks but sometimes up to a year, for the body to properly take over the productions of hormones again. By ingesting the placenta you are, in theory, replacing the hormones and nutrients lost during the birth and helping the body to be balanced while recovering from pregnancy and birth. Each woman’s placenta is unique to her hormonal make‐up. Also the first born male placenta is the most enriched.
By simply breastfeeding while taking the capsules the baby can receive benefits as well! If the mother is taking the capsules regularly the baby may experience a stronger immune system as well as the same benefits the mother receives which are listed above. If the mother is unable to breastfeed please read below and contact me to discuss how the baby can receive benefits of placenta capsules. Mother and baby shared the placenta and should share the benefits too!
