Placenta Preparation

The placenta is the special organ grown through pregnancy to nourish the baby. It is richly infused with nutrients and hormones that give baby life... a powerful lifeline that can give back to you!

Benefits of placental ingestion may: enhance milk supply, ease symptoms of baby blues and/or postpartum mood disorders, expedite healing time and decrease postpartum bleeding, and increase energy. 

Hormones & Other Nutrients in a placenta include:

  • Oxytocin - helps to relieve pain, enhances bonding, helps uterus contract to non-pregnant state.

  • TSH - boosts energy & helps to recover from stressful events

  • Interferon - stimulates the immune system, protects against infection.

  • Prostaglandins - stimulates involution of the uterus post birth and acts as an anti-inflammatory.

  • Hemoglobin - replenishes iron, which restores energy & prevents anemia, a common postpartum condition.

  • Urokinase - reduces bleeding & enhances wound healing

  • Gamma globin - immune booster to help prevent postpartum infections.

  • CRT (corticotropin-releasing hormone) - reduces stress
