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.
As a Certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist I love what I do. It is absolutely an honor being able to provide moms and families with the opportunity for a healthier and happier postpartum. But, that doesn’t mean it isn’t still difficult to share with others what I do. There are a lot of skeptics out there or people that have never heard of placenta encapsulation. Today a women who had had home births and planted her placentas under trees in her back yard described placenta encapsulation as “just a little too crunchy”. Honestly, even when I first heard of it I thought it was weird. But it’s not. It’s a natural process that we as mothers were meant to do and that is the point that needs to get across above everything else.read more
