Mother’s Broth is a product I offer for free with the encapsulation process. It is, in short, the steaming water used to steam the placenta. So why would I save this and why do I offer it to moms? Because it is amazing.
Have you ever steamed broccoli? Most of you probably have. When you steam the broccoli a portion of the nutrients will transfer to the steaming water. This is one of the reasons vegatable broth, chicken stock and other broths are so good for you and are often saved to make soups or water plants. The same is the case with the steaming water used to steam the placenta.
Placenta encapsulation is a safe, natural and easy way to have a healthy, and happy, postpartum but, as with all vitamin and herbal supplements, there can be some adverse effects.
These adverse effects are easily remedied and are usually not a problem.
Ingesting the placenta by encapsulation after birth is a great way to have a healthy postpartum. It help prevent baby blues and PPD, promotes healthy breast milk supply, increases energy and iron levels, and helps mother bond with baby. There are many other benefits but there are some circumstances when a mom should not have her placenta encapsulated or should not take her placenta capsules.
