Whether you are preparing to welcome your first, second, third or fourth child into the world it can be a daunting prospect. Trying to balance home life with self care whilst caring for a newborn is no easy task, especially when many of us live far from a family support network.What about momma love? This is a very special time for you, your family and your personal care is of the utmost importance... you can not fully help others until you are cared for.

Before putting your child’s oxygen mask on... put yours on first!

PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION

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.

My experience with placenta...

I decided to offer this service to women after I had an amazing experience ingesting my own placenta. My energy would noticeably increase after taking a capsule. My husband would comment that I was “on fire” when he saw me cooking up soups and dips to eat as well as nursing and caring for my son. My milk came in abundance and I attribute my calm energy and ability to cope with a sparodic sleep pattern to ingesting my placenta. The capsules lasted me throughout the fourth trimester. The first three months are crucial for mother and baby, it is a time to get to know one another, the baby is still adjusting to he outside world and you are adgusting to your baby. If you can take something that is natural and made by your body, that helps you be a calm and happy momma for your baby then take it!

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!
