Placenta Encapsulation for Mommas.
Healing YOU with natural empowerment from within!
Excited to offer my momma services throughout Santa Cruz County since 2017.
Your placenta is an amazing organ that was made by your body to support your babies development in the womb. It is full of hormones and nutrients that can help you recover after giving birth. The placenta stores vital hormones during pregnancy; after birth the essences can be preserved through proper preparation and storage. Replenishing what was lost during childbirth can boost a mother’s system, making the transition after birth much easier. It is truly Mother Nature’s greatest medicine!
Many cultures around the world honor the placenta, and Traditional Chinese Medicine has used the placenta for thousands of years. It is thought to replenish the bodies “Qi” (ch-ee), life force energy. New mom's can really benefit from this.
The preferred method by most women is to have the placenta encapsulated. In this method the placenta is cleaned, then steamed, it is then sliced thinly and dehydrated. When dry it can be ground and put into capsules, mom's take 2-4 capsules each day over time, as needed for recovery and healing.

A bit about Sarah:
I was able to experience the benefits of healthy living and a nutritious diet when I became pregnant in 2010. I maintained high energy levels, enjoyed a complication free pregnancy, and was able to workout up until the day I gave birth.
My Bauman College training + education in nutrition was the key, enabling me to choose the most beneficial foods for my pregnancy. My nutrition educator certification continues to serve me as a mother of two lovely boys, Kai (6) + Noa (3). After both natural labor cesarean births, I enjoyed a fast-recovery and was able to maintain the energy needed for challenging real life motherhood!
