BENEFITS OF CONSUMING YOUR PLACENTA
Consuming your placenta may help with:
* Preventing and lessening the risk of postpartum depression or ‘baby blues’
* Replenishing your iron from blood loss during birth and to prevent postpartum anemia
*Lending you a consistent flow of oxytocin long after your birth euphoria ends
* Providing the HPL hormone to help establish early and healthy milk supply
* To stabilize your ever changing hormones post birth
* To replenish your B vitamins and energy that were used during the labor and birthing process
*Protection from infection and bleeding due to retained placenta tissue or membranes
* Offer natural pain relief from the labor and birth of the baby
It is important to note, your placenta capsules are a nutritional supplement and there are no guarantees that it will prevent postpartum depression. There is also no guarantee that the capsules will increase your milk supply.
Placenta remedies are the best thing a new mother can give back to her body post birth, but can not be used to reverse present or predisposed issues.
Placenta capsules do not take the place of medical care and should not be used to treat severe anemia, inadequate milk supply, postpartum depression or anxiety.
