Nourish your body and spirit with help from The Nurturing Root. Our placenta encapsulation services specialist will introduce you to the miraculous benefits of the placenta – the complex organ that nourishes your baby before birth, and continues to nurture you even after your little one is born. Having a baby is both joyous and overwhelming. Many women suffer from postpartum hormone imbalances, resulting in emotions ranging from irritability and the so-called “baby blues” to more serious forms of clinical depression. Placenta encapsulation has been practiced for centuries as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, to treat these imbalances and to counteract fatigue and lactation issues in new parents. Carmen Calvo, The Nurturing Root’s trained and caring specialist, began her journey as a means to address the difficulties in her own postpartum experience. With the success of her personal experience with placenta encapsulation services, The Nurturing Root became Carmen’s way of helping new parents triumph in one of life’s most rewarding, albeit difficult times.
Placenta Encapsulation is the process of turning your baby’s placenta into capsules that will be consumed as a supplement. Placenta Encapsulation may benefit a postpartum parent in a number of ways. It has been known to:
- increase energy
- aid in milk production
- decrease postnatal bleeding
- decrease incidence of iron deficiency
- elevate mood by balancing hormone fluctuations.
The placenta is full of nutrients and has been used in Tradition Chinese Medicine (TCM) for centuries to aid in the relief of fatigue and lactation issues.
