Your body has created a beautiful new life and an incredible organ. The amazing placenta grows when needed and is released from the body when its job is through. It provides all that your baby needs to grow and flourish inside the uterus. This organ will continue to heal, and assist you well after you've birthed your baby.
Studies show that the placenta is extremely nutrient rich, high in iron, protein, vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B6 and of course, mother’s own natural hormones, making it perfectly suited for each individual.*
Experts agree that ingesting the placenta slowly reintroduces the hormones into the mother’s system and may ease hormonal fluctuations.*
Your baby's placenta is believed to:
· contain your own natural hormones
· be perfectly made for you
· balance your system
· replenish depleted iron
· give you more energy
· lessen bleeding postnatally
· been shown to increase milk production
· help you have a happier postpartum period
· return of uterus to pre-pregnancy state
· be helpful during menopause
· shorten healing time*
