Other Available Placenta Remedies:-
So that both you and baby can benefit from your placenta we advise that a placenta essence is ordered alongside encapsulation. It can be used by both mother and baby in a similar way to Rescue Remedy. Essence is believed to support the emotional health of the mother and can be used as an alternative to TCM Capsules during fever or ill health. Essence is regularly given to babies by their mothers who report that diluted essence helps during teething, colic and during times of separation.
Okay – so let’s be clear – this is not an entire placenta blended into a pulp for you to drink!
Instead, a small portion of pre-prepared placenta is whizzed in with organic fruit and berries, usually apple, banana and mixed berries (but can be adjusted to suit your taste) before being consumed immediately. The “raw” state of this preparation means that mums get an “instant hit”. Many mums report earlier milk supply, less bleeding, and better hormonal balance leading to them feeling less emotional on days 2/3 following birth. You can order a single smoothie to be prepared at your place of birth (dependant upon hospital policy).
Placenta Tincture is ideal for long term use and is thought to help balance hormones. Many mums find it very useful for helping to overcome emotional and psychological instability. This can be kept for future use to help treat PMS and Menopause and is therefore of particular interest to mothers who know that this will be their last pregnancy. A small portion of your placenta is placed in alcohol where it is steeped for 6 weeks whilst being vacillated each day and stored safely till it is ready for collection.
Placenta capsules can also be used to create homeopathic remedies for use by both you and your child throughout your lives, during times of transition, illness, teething or stress – a constitutional remedy that is unique to you both. We work with our experienced homeopath who will return two remedies to you – 30C for the mother and 7C for the baby.
Placenta Prints are an additional option and provide a totally unique piece of artwork that can be created at the same time as we encapsulate your placenta. Many of our families adore the opportunity to see the size and detail of their placenta from their print and frame it to place on the nursery wall. Just £25.00
We adore creating “umbilical cord artworks” which can be shaped into a heart, spiral, initial or the word ‘love’ (dependant upon length!) creating a totally bespoke keepsake. This service is just £25 as a stand alone order and is free of charge for every client ordering encapsulation.
