After four days of taking placenta capsules: "They seem to be helping; I definitely have increased energy, and my milk is certainly improving."
Later: "This has been an amazing experience! I have more energy and my milk supply is amazing since taking the capsules. I would recommend this to anyone having a baby."
"What you did for me this past January was wonderful! Thank you, it makes such a difference. I think the most profoundly subtle part was reconnecting my baby with his motherplacenta through my breast milk (we were not able to have a lotus birth). ❤"
"Best decision ever; this was my fifth baby and my milk supply was awesome even with having to pump (she was a preemie). With all the reasons I had to be more depressed, it worked at least a hundred times better than the Zoloft I had taken with previous babies for PPD."
"I was so happy to find out that there's someone in Winnipeg who offers this service. I called to get my placenta encapsulated the day I got home from the hospital and had my capsules by noon the next day!! Will definitely use this service again!!"
"My pregnancy with my third child was very tough because I had very low iron levels. I tried many things (lots of meat, nettle tea, floradix etc.) and even resorted to iron pills to get my levels high enough to have a midwife supported home birth. I [consumed] my placenta, and at my 6 week postpartum appointment my levels were higher than ever, and well into the 'normal' range. I've always been borderline, even as a child. Anyway, such a wonderful thing to do!"
"I love the fact Andrea hand-encapsulated my lovingly-prepared placenta. The care and passion she puts into her job comes across so well.
The benefits of eating my placenta are so obvious any time I take a few capsules or dip into the tincture. My mood elevates by the next day and my energy level really improves!"
"I had planned to encapsulate my own placenta but when the time came, I wasn't up for it. I was grateful to have the option of someone local to prepare it to my preferences. I had part encapsulated and part frozen into portions for smoothies. I found that the smoothies really gave me an energy boost! Andrea was very accommodating and had a quick turn around, I hope to use her services again someday."
"I think it was totally worth it! I went into it not knowing how I felt exactly about it, but thought that if nothing else, I could get the placebo effect and that's better than nothing! My OB/GYN was all for it, and that made me start to think that there really could be something to it. I had no idea how much those little pills would mean to me! It was something so special and I will be forever grateful to Andrea for doing it for me. ♥ "
"Just wanted to send a huge 'Thank You' for the encapsulation. This is my fifth baby and the first time I've ingested (my placenta), and the difference in energy, both physical and emotional, is staggering. I cannot believe how well and contented I feel.
To any mamas who may be on the fence about encapsulation... I urge you to try it. I am so glad I did."
This was my first pregnancy and I am now 13 days post partum and feeling great! The first three days I had some definite blues and cried at everything-day 4 I started taking the raw dehydrated placenta pills and I have been feeling so emotionally and physically strong! I also had a breast reduction 12 years ago and was unsure if I would be able to breast feed but have been successfully doing same with the occasional top up bottle with evening feeds! Andrea answered all my questions, was always respectful, and provided me with a beautiful handwritten letter with little tips and information.
The placenta pills worked so well for me! This was my fourth baby and I didn't have ANY postpartum issues with this one like I did with the first three! I was also really pleased to find the only placenta encapsulation service in the city who does the raw dehydrated one at a raw foods temperature. That is a big deal to me since we are really into raw, traditional foods. Thank you so much for this service!
A friend of mine gave me a few little bags of the emotional aid, Mama's Aid, and Breast Freshner tea. I love them. They seem to help almost immediately and make me feel a whole lot better. About to stock back up right now! :)
