Placenta Encapsulation Specialist®
Lindsey Roberts - Austin, TX
Greetings! My name is Lindsey Roberts. I am the proud mother of two wonderful children, wife to a super husband, and Placenta Encapsulation Specialist®.
My passion for placenta began with the birth of our first child. We had a natural birth and experienced placentophagia first hand. This was such a powerful experience for me - I realized then that I wanted to share this with other women so that they may also know the healing potential of the placenta. After the birth of our second child, I encapsulated my own placenta and realized the benefits could extend well into the postpartum period when women need it most. This had a huge impact on me and made my transition so much easier. I was amazed at how quickly my body recovered and the amount of energy I had to take care of my family.
My daughter was born in a birthing center with a midwife and we were offered the placenta. When I became pregnant with our son and we considered a hospital birth, I discovered that in Texas the placenta is viewed as medical waste and not routinely offered to new mothers who birth in hospitals. In fact, the state law forbids mothers from taking this home. After much research, I found this was possible with a court order. It was not an easy task, but one I felt strongly about and was able to successfully overcome. As part of my services I’d like to assist moms with this somewhat intimidating task.
Since the beginning of my journey through motherhood I knew that I wanted to help other mothers. By sharing my services as a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist® I hope to help new moms through the sometimes rocky transition of the postpartum period. The natural wellness that comes from encapsulated placenta is a blessing all women should have the opportunity to experience.
I am excited to offer a better postpartum recovery to women in Austin and the surrounding areas. I look forward to helping you enjoy your special time.
