Have you ever given your placenta a second thought? Perhaps you’ve wondered why almost all land mammals eat the placenta after birth. Did you know many countries in the Eastern world have been using the placenta in healing remedies and medicines for centuries?
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the placenta is a ‘full of life-force organ’ and should be consumed to support a healing mother after birth.
For a long time the placenta has been thought of as a magical part of the creation of a baby. This incredible organ is uniquely designed for your baby and an integral part of any pregnancy and birth. The placenta physically connects the mother to her unborn baby; it feeds the developing foetus a continuous supply of essential oxygen, nutrients and vitamins through the umbilical cord.
The placenta benefits the new mother by supplying incredibly rich meaty iron, amino acids and essential fats which we believe is the be the perfect replenishment following the birth.
Placenta encapsulation and other placenta ‘remedies’ are a growing trend; the feelings of tiredness, weakness and low mood following birth are not the feelings that mothers need or want when caring for their newborn babies and recovering from the hard work of birth. The Placenta, rich in nutrients and hormones, may hold the key to a quicker and healthier post-natal recovery.
The most important nutrients found in rich supply in the placenta include:
- Iron – essential for oxygen absorption in the cells
- Vitamin B6 – aids in the making of antibodies
- Vitamin E – for healing damaged skin cells
- Oxytocin hormone – essential for facilitating birth and breastfeeding
- Corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) – responsible for reducing stress levels
- Cytokines – Fibroblasts that trigger cell metabolism healing and replacing damaged cells and tissue
Placenta Encapsulation – There are many ways to consume the placenta after birth and all are equally spiritual and physically beneficial to the new mother. The most modern and non-invasive way to consume the placenta is in capsule form.
The encapsulation process most popular in the Western world is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) techniques. Putting dried placenta powder into vegetable capsules, known as placenta encapsulation, has become very popular in recent years in America and Canada and is now available as a service in the UK and Europe. Consuming your placenta in the form of placenta capsules makes it a safe effect and easy way to get all the benefits of your placenta post birth.
Below is an image of an umbilical cord in 6 stages after the baby has been delivered, the baby benefits of not having the cord clamped immediately after birth as the cord still pulses for up to 10 minutes after birth and it is important he receives all his cord blood post birth. It will ensure better outcomes regarding the future health of the baby if he has the 30% of the blood in the cord as it is rich in stem cells and iron and will help to fight infection.
Women all over the world have for centuries safely consumed their placentas in various forms to reap the benefit of what has now become a normal, everyday occurrence. By women choosing help after the birth of their baby. By consuming the placenta after birth, by using all the methods
