So why should you consume your placenta?

Placenta remedies have been reported by mothers to:

  • reduce post­birth bleeding quickly

  • encourage a quick and healthy milk supply

  • balance hormonal peaks and drops

  • reduce stress levels

  • prevent the baby blues and postnatal depression

  • boost energy to cope with a busy day after little sleep

  • improve the appearance of skin/hair/nails

The placenta is rich with nutrients that can benefit mother and baby's postpartum healing and emotional wellbeing:

​Stem Cells and Growth Factors

Stem cells and growth factors in the placenta play a key role in healing the wound left inside the uterus after birth by the separation of the placenta from the uterine wall.  A mother will typically bleed for between 3 – 6 weeks after birth.  This blood loss stems from where the placenta separated from the uterine wall.  We have found however that mothers who consume their placenta after birth, particularly after consuming raw placenta in a smoothie or other, bleed significantly less e.g. usually much lighter bleeding for between just 5 – 10 days after giving birth.
