Nikki from Onglowing is an absolute gem! I gave birth at 10am on a Sunday and had my capsules back by the Monday delivered to the hospital. The service was amazing and easy, Nikki is professional, knowledgeable and a genuine soul. I would highly recommend Onglowing to all new mummas! Also encapsulating my placenta has been a game changer for my postpartum recovery + my milk supply is off the charts!

Highly recommend Nikki from Onglowing Placenta !!! Her knowledge is amazing, as is her communication and overall her service was absolutely 5 star !! I recently got my placenta encapsulated with her for my 2nd baby and the difference I felt post-partum compared to with my 1st baby was MASSIVE. I feel I didn't suffer with post-partum moods etc as much and my energy levels were way higher (which was handy being I had a 3 year old to run after) and also my milk supply I never had to doubt !!!

I couldn’t recommend Nikki enough, within hours of giving birth to my daughter Nikki was back at the hospital with goodies from my placenta. Nikki went above and beyond to gift us wonderful keepsakes along with those incredible placenta capsules I was waiting for. Which also - do exactly what they say!!! Not only did I feel physically well in the days after birth, my healing process was quick, I swear they also played an integral role in helping regulate my hormones when those baby blues where due. If you’re considering encapsulating your placenta (which you totally should do FYI) go through Nikki, I promise you won’t be disappointed. If I could give 1000 stars I would ❤️

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. 

benefits reported by our amazing clients

The placenta is an organ that contains many nutrients, hormones and stem cells. 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.

A tincture is your placenta capsules in liquid form! It is easy to take and can last anywhere up to 10+ years. It is used in any time of trauma, transition, emotional distress and during PMT/menopause to ease your symptoms. Tinctures are becoming popular because even a large placenta will only yield a few months supply of capsules, and they have such a long shelf-life.
