Why 95% of mums love placenta capsules
I’ve been enthused ever since I first started placenta encapsulation by the amazing effects that so many mums tell me they get from placenta capsules.
So it’s fabulous that their views are backed up by the first systematic study ever to record women’s experiences of encapsulation: it found that 95% found it a positive or very positive experience!
Healing powers of placenta capsules
Your placenta has wonderful nourishing and healing powers and can be preserved as capsules you can take in the days, weeks and months after you give birth.
When the women in the survey were asked to name their top benefit:
- 40% said improved mood
- 26% said increased energy/decreased fatigue
- 15% said improved milk flow and
- 7% said less bleeding/discharge.
Other positive effects reported included balance; prevented or treated anaemia; increased strength/vitality; improved/accelerated recovery; weight loss; prevented/relieved headaches; facilitated bonding with infant; reduced pain; replenishment/regulation of hormones; increased/improved duration or quality of sleep; increased libido; and facilitated healing/recovery.
What an incredible list!
Seen as a pie chart (Figure 4), it makes a powerful case for placenta capsules.
When asked to rate how positive the experience was, they rated it a very positive experience (75%) or positive experience (20%).
Testimonials for placenta capsules
The researchers received testimony such as:
“My [two] postpartum periods were markedly different. My recovery was faster. My moods were lifted. I had more energy than I ever thought possible just days after giving birth. “
“I had no negative effects at all, only positive effects. The placenta encapsulation affected my mood to the point that I was able to enjoy my time with my new baby instead of stressing about having a 17 month old, a newborn, and a brand new house. Within hours of taking the first pills I felt a definite change in my mood and energy level. I would absolutely do it again, and would recommend it to anyone.”
“I felt almost immediate relief. Previously I was feeling dizzy from low iron and had no energy.”
“I felt back to normal. I had no problems with depression after this birth unlike past births.”
