The Placenta: Organ of Life

Every one of us has been blessed by the gift of this organ, one that seems to appear out of nowhere. As we leave our mothers in birth, its work is done and it is disposed of, with few people ever looking at it or even realizing the services it just performed.

The placenta is created when life is created at conception. It grows with the baby and at the end of the first trimester, it takes on the role as the main support system for the baby. It performs the complex job of passing blood, oxygen and wastes between mom and baby while not mixing mom and baby’s blood.

Another of the placenta’s marvels is its production of hormones for mom and baby. It is known to produce: hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), hPL (human placental lactogen), hCT (human chorionic thyrotropin, estrogens, and progesterone. Though it’s likely that it has even more functions than that, those of which are waiting to be discovered.

In many cultures, the placenta is revered and honored in a variety of ways. I offer both keepsake and medicinal preparations of the placenta. The placenta’s hormonal make-up is completely unique to the mother. No prescription, vitamin or herbal supplement can do what one placenta pill can. How amazing is that?

The theory is you are replacing the hormones you lost during the birthing process. Each woman’s placenta is unique to her hormonal make-up. Also the first born male placenta is the most enriched.

This new organ of life holds nutrients such as iron, vitamin B6, and hormones that can aid your postpartum bodies in immense ways. Consumption of the placenta via encapsulation can:


  • Milk supply
  • Depleted iron
  • Depleted B vitamins
  • Energy level
  • Balance in your bodily system
  • Your own natural hormones


  • Likelihood of postpartum depression
  • Sleep disorders such as insomnia
  • Uterine size post-pregnancy
  • Postpartum bleeding

After giving birth, new moms experience blood loss, fatigue, and a severe drop in their pregnancy hormones. The hormonal fluctuation is what leads to “baby blues” and postpartum depression that approximately 80% of new mothers experience.

Placenta Encapsulation has been used in traditional Chinese medicine and various cultures around the world for thousands of years. In recent years, science has gotten a hold of this ancient method and has proven its amazing benefits.
