In Austin, more and more mothers are using placenta capsules for their postpartum recovery. Lindsey Roberts, PBi-Certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist® in Austin, TX, talks with YNN about placenta encapsulation for their Health Works segment.
Her client, Tara Bowman, used placenta capsules after the birth of her second child.
“I had extra energy, I even had people telling me to slow down a bit. It was a great experience all around from the energy and mood perspective, and preventing myself from any kind of depression was great,” Bowman said.
She wasn’t the only one who noticed. “My husband is like, ‘If we have another kid, we are doing this again,’ because he saw the difference between after my first labor and my second,” Bowman said.
She said she was able to fight off any postpartum depression and increase her breast milk production, benefits that typically only come through medication.
“The moms who have had previous pregnancies have something to compare it to and they say it’s a night and day difference,” Roberts said.
Thanks for a great interview, Lindsey, and doing such great work for mothers in Austin. Thanks also to Tara for sharing her story!
