Blessed Beginnings Wellness specializes in Placenta Encapsulation and related services. I am able to not only encapsulate your placenta, but I can create salves, tinctures, body creams, and can even incorporate your placenta into certain recipes - chocolates included!
For thousands of years, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has revered the placenta as a powerful and invaluable part of the postpartum healing process. After giving birth many new mothers experience blood loss, fatigue, and a sharp drop in their pregnancy hormones; all of which are thought of as key factors in the development of the “baby blues” and postpartum depression (PPD). Full of Qi (life energy), placenta aids in postpartum wellness by replenishing your system with natural iron & protein and helps reintroduce these essential hormones back into your system. The placenta contains vitamins and minerals that may help fight depression symptoms. It is also rich in iron and protein, directly benefiting the recovering mother.
As a mother who has suffered through the "baby blues," postpartum depression, and postpartum anxiety, I believe they should no longer be accepted as a normal part of postpartum recovery. The priority of the new mother should be allowing her body to heal after the trauma of pregnancy and delivery. I firmly believe mothers should be afforded the luxury of simply focusing on their new little blessings instead of wading through the rollercoaster of emotions that follow birth.
I look forward to getting to know and helping as many new moms as I can! Allow me to focus on YOU while you focus on your new addition and enjoy your "baby moon!"
