Why Encapsulate?

Placenta contains your own natural hormones, made for you, by you. Eighty percent of new moms experience the baby blues, but it doesn't have to be the norm. More moms are choosing placenta encapsulation because of the following benefits:

Balance Your Hormone Levels

It can take a full 12 weeks for hormones to return to pre-pregnancy levels. Placenta capsules re-introduce those hormones back into moms' bodies, allowing them to gradually wean off the hormones and creating a buffer for the hormone crashes many new moms experience.

Replenish Iron Levels

Even without any complications, childbirth in itself leads to iron deficiency, which causes fatigue and cognitive impairment. Placenta capsules will replenish the body's iron stores.

Increase your energy

Moms find that they have more energy, which allows them an easier transition back to day-to-day activities, returning to work after maternity leave, and taking care of any other children.

Lessen Postpartum Bleeding

Traditionally, postpartum bleeding can last up to six weeks after birth. However, placenta capsules may hasten the return of the uterus to its pre-pregnancy state and decrease the amount of time moms bleed afterwards.

Enhance Milk Supply

In one of the only human studies done on placenta consumption, researchers found that it did increase milk supply in 86% of the women. In conjunction with breastfeeding support, placenta capsules may help increase moms' milk supply.

Faster Recovery

Moms find that their recovery is smoother and happier, and their moods even out at a faster rate.
