For thousands of years, Traditional Chinese Medicine has revered the placenta as a powerful and invaluable part of the postpartum healing process. After giving birth many new mothers experience blood loss, fatigue, and a drop in their high pregnancy hormones; all of which are thought of as key factors in the development of the “baby blues” and postnatal depression. The the placenta aids in postnatal wellness by replenishing your system with natural iron & protein and helps reintroduce these essential hormones back into your system.
The "baby blues" affect the majority of womens. Symptoms are
Lack of concentration
Feelings of dependency
Rapid hormonal changes
Fatigue and sleep deprivation
Physical and emotional stress of birthing
Today, approximately 80% of women experience some level of postnatal depression/mood disorder. Using the placenta for its medicinal properties during the postnatal period is a natural & healthier way you can help avoid these symptoms and the costly treatments that usually accompany them, such as medications and counseling.
