Placentophagy is referred to act of ingesting the placenta after childbirth. I KNOW it sounds CRAZY!!! Honestly, I thought it was when I first heard about it. Once I took the time to learn about the placenta and how it supports the postpartum mother...I was sold! Unfortunately, I don't have the personal experience of ingesting my own placenta, back to that "I did not even know it was an option" or the possible benefits story.
Basically, I take your placenta and turn it into capsules that can be ingested. I know you are still wondering, why this is done?
Placenta encapsulation is known to provide the following benefits: -Helps prevent postpartum depression -Improves breastmilk supply -Helps to shrink the uterus -May prevent postpartum hemorrhage and decrease postpartum bleeding -May prevent iron deficiency anemia -Help to balance your hormones -Increase milk production -Make for a happier and more enjoyable post-natal period
