Experience a more peaceful, restorative postpartum with the help of The Nurturing Root. Placenta is ancient medicine, re-discovered and cherished by new mothers. The root of your baby’s origin, her placenta, was made to nourish. It contains vital hormones, vitamins, and nutrients that can continue to benefit your body and mind after birth.
Our professional placenta encapsulation service is a two-day, multi-step process that transforms your baby’s placenta into capsules that you take as a supplement. We use Traditional Chinese Medicine guidelines to process your placenta. In addition to encapsulation, we also offer placenta broth, tincture, salve, art prints, and cord keepsakes.
Our clients are reporting the following benefits from placenta encapsulation:
- Increased iron stores
- Ample milk supply
- More energy
- Decreased postpartum bleeding
- Help balancing hormones
- Feeling emotionally well and strong
- Decreased occurrence of ‘baby blues’
‘I cannot recommend The Nurturing Root or the process of placenta encapsulation enough! I am 3 months PP with my second child and I feel amazing. I suffered with moderate PPD/PPA after my first. The difference between my first and second postpartum experiences is night and day. I am certain that taking my placenta pills allowed me to recover at a much quicker rate, and with no baby blues... at all! My milk came in immediately, my energy level was great even after long nights establishing a nursing a schedule, I felt stable and clearheaded. It fully allowed me to revel in the birth of my child and enjoy the early bonding period in a way that escaped me during the exhaustion of my first birth. The Nurturing Root was flexible, nurturing, professional and efficient.’ - Kristin S.
‘Not only did encapsulation help me immediately postpartum, but I took my capsules again 3.5 months postpartum when I was stressed about leaving my daughter for the first time for a work trip. It not only brought a lightness back into my mood, but increased my pumping output so I could add enough to my stash. I would recommend The Nurturing Root’s services to everyone. They are so warm, kind, and professional and even called to check on me a week after making my capsules. I am definitely going to use her services in the future with baby #2.’ - Michelle W.
