Encapsulate placenta??

I have a midwife that I will be working with, to have her encapsulate my placenta. Has anyone ever done this? Any input is appreciated!

Re: Encapsulate placenta??

I had it done with my son's placenta. My MW did a great job with it! She added some herbs as well. I haven't taken it as much as I probably should have (He's 16 months old and I still have half the pills LOL) I mostly took it when I was feeling the baby blues a couple months after he was born. It seemed to help a lot those days. I need to ask her about taking it now that I'm prego. I don't know if it's okay or not. I probably will just plant the placenta with a tree sapling this time around. I just don't use the pills enough for it to be worth it. If you're consistent with taking the pills though, I think you would find more benefits and like having it. There are lots of websites with pros/cons/benefits/etc. if you search for them.

We didn't encapsulate, but I did take smoothies with frozen placenta for the first week.

Re: Encapsulate placenta??

I'd love to take my placenta this time around. Due to a rushed hospital transfer after my HB I wasn't able to properly save the placenta in order to use it for sanitary consumption. (It went in a freezer bag and I buried it under a tree for DS much later on.)

I'm weighing my options and deciding whether to go the smoothie route, which would be great because, hey, free! ....or encapsulate or have a tincture made.
I'm curious to hear what you other mamas who have done this before have to say as well!

I haven't done it for my previous births, but am definitely encapsulating this time. Also, will be doing the smoothies, a smoothie after birth, then cutting another 6 pieces to put into the ice cube tray to last me the rest of the week and doing 2 tinctures these last a lifetime, and can be used for mama and baby.. I seem to have plenty of pain in my joints, so I know the tincture is a good tylenol substitute.

I haven't ever done it before but will this time (due in Jan). My reasons for doing it include increased milk production, help with postpartum depression, and help with healing after birth.
