Colleen from Portland, OR just emailed me this fabulous testimonial.
I first learned of placenta medicine through my herbal training as an acupuncturist. I decided then that I definitely wanted to have my placenta prepared so that I could take it therapeutically. Thus, my story is not so much about appreciation for finding this medicine, but for the kit from Placenta Benefits that made it possible for me.
About half way through my pregnancy I began the process of searching for someone to prepare my placenta for me. I was amazed to discover that in a town like Portland, OR I couldn’t find anyone. My on line searching eventually lead me to Placenta Benefits – thank you!! I originally lined up another acupuncturist/friend of mine to do the encapsulation, but in the 11th hour my husband decided he wanted to do the preparation. His thought… this is my wife and my baby – I want to be able to give them this gift. It was incredibly sweet to hear him in the kitchen exclaiming his amazement as he worked with this truly beautiful organ that had housed and nurtured his daughter for the last 10 months.
Now one year later my neighbor has just given birth to a precious baby girl. I had told her several months before she was due that I would be happy to do placenta encapsulation for her. Just order the kit on line because Jodi makes it so incredibly easy. Well wouldn’t you know it… at the 11th hour, Dad and the 2 older siblings came over and spent the afternoon at my house, oohing, aahing and preparing this most wonderful gift for mamma and babe. I ended up just sitting back, watching and smiling.
I think what gets me so choked up is what this kit seems to do for people. It makes this process accessible, it engages the family, it makes people feel empowered and it normalizes what may seem weird to some at first and allows for the creation of a powerful, beautiful and loving gift.
Your kit is a gift of love to all of us who nurture and seek to be nurtured. Thank you Jodi!
These kinds of stories motivate me to keep spreading the word about placenta and its benefits for postpartum recovery. I say it all the time; mothers need all the help they can get in those first few weeks postpartum. I am so grateful to be able to contribute and help them out in this small way.
You can purchase a DIY Placenta Encapsulation Kit from Placenta Benefits.info – as you just read, it does make the whole process much easier. And it comes with phone support so you can call me if you have any questions, and I will walk you through it.
Placentas are not trash; don’t let your baby’s placenta go to waste!
