Why do moms encapsulate and ingest their placentas?
Ingesting your placenta can be VERY beneficial to a mother adjusting to the physical and emotional demands of parenting a newborn as well as helping her heal from the birth, no matter the type of birth she experienced. Although the research on placenta ingestion is very limited, there is a large amount of women who agree that it greatly benefited them during the postpartum period! The primary benefits mothers notice while taking their placenta pills are:
Increased energy and less fatigue
Increase in milk supply
Overall more pleasant postpartum period with more ability to bond and care for baby
To take advantage of the amazing nutrition and hormones that are found in the placenta!
