Placenta Encapsulation & Postnatal Products, Melbourne
What is the Placenta, and what does it do?
The placenta is an organ attached to the lining of your uterus during pregnancy.
It keeps your unborn baby’s blood supply separate from your own blood supply, as well as providing a link between the two. This link allows the placenta to carry out functions that your unborn baby can’t perform for itself.
Oxygen and nutrients pass from your blood supply into the placenta. From there, the umbilical cord carries the oxygen and nutrients to your unborn baby. The placenta produces hormones that help your baby grow & develop and towards the end of your pregnancy the placenta passes antibodies from you to your baby, giving them immunity for about 3 months after birth.
What are the Reported Benefits of Encapsulation?
The placenta is a organ that contains many nutrients and hormones and once it is processed and put into capsules these are still present. This is beneficial for transitioning from pregnancy to post-partum by allowing a gradual decrease rather than a plummet of these hormones, and supplementing your recovery with these nutrients.
