Placenta Encapsulation Specialist®
Melanie Contero - Oakhurst, Fresno and Madera, CA
My name is Melanie Contero and I am a proud PBiU Training graduate and Placenta Encapsulation Specialist®, serving Oakhurst and the surrounding area.
I am a Mother of two beautiful sons and have an amazingly supportive husband. When my first son Liam was born, I wanted a natural childbirth, but I had no idea what that really meant or what kind of preparation it took…so lets just say I ended up having a textbook hospital birth, with an epidural and an episiotomy I didn’t want, but My son and I were healthy and that’s all that mattered.
I was so in love with my son, but could not stop crying, happy or sad, I was exhausted, medicated, in pain and disconnected, I definitely had the baby blues. I confided in my sister about my feelings and that’s when she informed me about Placenta Encapsulation!
As I began my research, I knew I wanted to do this with my next birth and I did!! With my second son Abel, my husband and I took a Bradley Method Course and had a beautiful 11b. 2oz baby (I know right!!?!) peacefully at home in the water 🙂 Everything I wanted my birth experience to be.
Four hours after Abel was born my PBi trained Placenta Encapsulation Specialist® arrived to process my placenta, and the whole family got into it!! My mom was in the kitchen asking questions, my husband was taking pictures, I was bonding with baby, it was awesome! And the next day, when I took my first pills I was made a believer and my passion for Placenta was born!! I immediately felt a boost of energy, my milk came in by that evening and from then on I felt balanced, level-headed and HAPPY!! I couldn’t believe how good I felt, I shared my experience with every mama I could and decided this is what I was called to do! So I began my training with PBi.
I want to help give that postpartum experience to other moms, that’s why I became a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist®. With PBi, I found my calling!! I now understand what is going on during the hormonal crash in a Mothers postpartum body. You are a warrior for birthing a human being, there is no doubt about that!! But there is still a hormonal war going on inside of you, that continues for weeks postpartum.
The amazing part about this, is that you don’t have to just go along for the ride, THERE IS AN ANSWER! ITS YOUR PLACENTA! You can supplement your hormones, iron, fight fatigue, support lactation, help your body heal, and you can enjoy these precious first weeks the way it was meant to be!
I am empowered and encouraged by the testimonies of other women, my own experience and the wisdom and support I’ve gained with PBi . I will treat your placenta with the utmost respect and gentle care and provide you with a peaceful, professional service, while you bond with your new baby.
I know Placenta Encapsulation is a very personal decision, I am here to answer your questions and help make your transition from pregnancy into motherhood, a smooth and joyful one! I believe in the power of your bodies own perfect postpartum medicine, this beautiful gift, to help you feel balanced, level and energized, while you care for your new life and make precious memories.
Your journey into motherhood is an ever so precious time. I hope you take the opportunity to benefit from the gift you and your baby have given you to heal!! I would be honored to be a small part of this beautiful transition. Contact me for more information and support 🙂 Wishing you so many blessings and priceless moments with your new baby!
