Many mammals ingest their placenta after birth, which has been known to aid in healing and prevent/reduce postpartum complications. Because we are humans, and the thought of doing so raw can be off-putting for many, we use ancient methods of preparing the placenta to be taken by the mother after birth in ways that are more…palatable.

Many benefits have been noted with this method of healing:

  • Increased milk supply
  • Decreased depression/anxiety
  • Higher iron levels in mother
  • Increased energy and feelings of wellness
