Certified Placenta Encapsulation Specialist®
Char Scheuermann - PA/NJ/NY Tri-State Area
Hi, my name is Char Scheuermann and I live in northeast Pennsylvania in the small town of Dingmans Ferry. I live close to the Delaware River just south of where New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania intersect. I have been married to my best friend for 15 years and we have four wonderful children.
I had the blessing of delivering all of my children at home. My first two were born in Nebraska and my second two were born in Pennsylvania. After delivering my first two without the need of any drugs, my PA midwife was not comfortable with the amount of bleeding after the delivery of my third child so I was given Pitocin. When I became pregnant again, she and I discussed how ingesting some of my placenta would contract the uterus and reduce the bleeding to an appropriate level. I was willing to try anything to avoid Pitocin. After eating 2 small squares of placenta, my bleeding was at a safe level.
At that time I did not know about placenta encapsulation. I would have loved to benefit from the storehouse of God-given nutrients and how encapsulation can benefit a new mom. I am thrilled to find PBI and share the benefits of placenta encapsulation with others.
