Many women look to placenta encapsulation as a natural way to even their hormones after birth and avoid postpartum depression. For thousands of years, the placenta has been recognized a powerful and natural remedy to support a woman during her journey after birth. During pregnancy, the placenta provides nourishment to the baby and secretes hormones that regulate and maintain pregnancy. After the birth, the placenta is full of essential feel-good hormones that can also heal, sustain and strengthen the mother during the postpartum period. The placenta's hormonal make-up is completely unique to the mother thereby making it the perfect supplement to replace her lost hormones during the birthing process.
