Encapsulating your placenta is a safe and healthy way to help your body transition through your postpartum period. It is a fabulous way to help avoid the baby blues and treat symptoms of postpartum depression. Research has proven that the placenta is rich in minerals, vitamins, and nutrients. Your body needs these to help it recover. Your placenta is created by you and contains your own natural hormones. The placenta retains these hormones following birth and reintroducing them to your system is believed to ease postpartum hormonal fluctuations.
