Placenta Medicine for Postpartum Wellness
Many women worry about postpartum depression. Although
1 in 8 new mothers and their families will be affected by the
disorder, far more (up to 80%) will experience a phenomenon
known as “The Baby Blues.” This condition is so common that
it is considered by many a ‘normal’ part of recovery from
childbirth. The blues, along with lack of cultural and familial
support, can lead to the dreaded Postpartum Depression, a
clinical form of depression affecting women after childbirth.
The good news: Nature has had a remedy for the baby blues all
along! Now more than ever women are using their placentas to
keep the blues at bay. And there is no need to blend it in a
smoothie or bake a placenta pot pie. Many women are finding
that taking a few capsules filled with their dehydrated placenta is
much easier to swallow! Benefits of placenta medicine include:
increased milk supply, more energy, fewer mood swings, quicker
recovery, and less fatigue.
