Placenta Encapsulation San Antonio, TX
Empowering Your Postpartum Journey
“Thank you so much for guiding me through this crazy journey month after month! The prenatal care was amazing, and of course the birth, but the postpartum care was the most valuable help I didn’t even know I needed.” – Alexa
80% of mothers experience some degree of “baby blues” in the first days and weeks after giving birth. When giving birth with an OB practice, you typically won’t be seen by a medical professional from the time you leave the hospital until your six-week postpartum appointment. This leaves a lot of new mothers coping with a wide range of emotions unaided by a trained health professional. As your midwife, I provide attentive postpartum care to cushion you through this transition, and I provide the option of placenta encapsulation.
Here are some of the benefits of consuming encapsulated placenta:
- Balances hormones
- Increases and enriches breastmilk
- Increases energy
- Decreases “baby blues” and postpartum depression
- Decreases postpartum bleeding
- Decreases iron deficiency
- Decreases insomnia
- Decreases postpartum “night sweats”
We will pick your placenta up after your birth, dehydrate and encapsulate it. Your placenta will be returned to you within a few days with written instructions. You may choose the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) method of encapsulation or the raw method of encapsulation.
TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE (TCM) METHOD
The placenta is cleaned, steamed, dehydrated, and then ground before being placed into (vegan) capsules. With the traditional Chinese medicine method, pills can be stored indefinitely for help with hormone balancing later in life, as well as during early postpartum.
The placenta is cleaned, sliced and dehydrated, ground into a powder and then placed into (vegan) capsules. As a result of being dehydrated at a lower temperature, rather than steamed, the raw method capsules can have a more potent effect on energy levels.
Throughout your journey, I’ll be by your side, assisting you not only in your physical preparation but also in nurturing your mental and emotional well-being. Together, we will embark on this transformative voyage, so we can welcome your baby into the world with confidence and joy.
From the earliest moments of your pregnancy to the miracle of birth, and even the postpartum period after, I will be your steadfast advocate. My commitment is to provide skilled medical care, sound advice, and a compassionate ear every step of the way. I’m honored to walk this path with you, and to help make these once in a lifetime moments truly special.
