80 percent of all new moms experience the Baby Blues. Society tells us it's normal to feel exhausted, weepy, moody, trapped, and anxious after the birth of your baby. That it's normal to have the Baby Blues for the first couple of weeks after childbirth. But what if it didn't have to be this way?
Wouldn't it be great if you could feel fantastic, energetic, and happy instead? What if you could have:
What if you could get all these things just from taking a pill? A pill made for you, by you?
What is Placenta Encapsulation?
Placenta encapsulation is the process of taking the nutrient-rich placenta, and turning it into a easy to swallow pill for women to take during the first few weeks of their postpartum period. Most mammals consume their placenta after childbirth. Why don't humans? Has childbirth become so sterile and clean that we have forgotten the most basic of mammal behaviors?
Why would a new mother do that?
Placenta capsules have been shown to balance hormones, enhance milk supply, lessen postpartum bleeding, and increase energy. Your placenta contains your own natural hormones made for you, not by a pharmaceutical corporation. Women who have taken placenta capsules report fewer emotional issues and a faster, more pleasant, postpartum recovery.
When the high hormone levels of pregnancy drop significantly by day 4-5 postpartum, it is thought that this fluctuation is a key factor in the development of the “baby blues”. By reintroducing hormones back into their system, many women find that they do not experience these intense emotional swings.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), steamed and dried placenta is used to fight fatigue, which is one of the leading indicators in the development of postpartum depression (PPD). Iron deficiency is also linked to PPD; replenishing your system with the iron-rich placenta can help alleviate a major symptom of PPD. TCM has used the placenta to treat fatigue and insufficient lactation for centuries.
How is a placenta encapsulated?
There are many ways of encapsulating a placenta. I have been Trained and Certified by Placenta Benefits, the leading organization and certification program in this field. I follow Traditional Chinese Medicine practices and methods. When you only get one placenta, why take a chance at trusting someone who isn't certified?
I make 2 consecutive evening visits to your home (4 hours total). The placenta never leaves your home and I leave your kitchen cleaner than I found it!
On the first day, I prepare the placenta using TCM techniques and leave it to dehydrate in my dehydrator at your home overnight. On the second day, I powder and encapsulate the placenta. I leave you with a pretty little blue bottle of capsules to take to increase your iron, assist with lactation, reduce fatigue, help stop/lessen your postpartum bleeding, help your uterus contract, and improve your mood. I also leave my phone number in case you have any questions.
How much does placenta encapsulation cost?
You will get approximately 60-100 capsules to use for your postpartum recovery. Please contact me for the cost. I believe that placenta encapsulation should be available to all mothers, regardless of individual financial ability. Please feel free to contact me so that we can discuss your situation. I look forward to helping you have a happy, healthy, and natural postpartum recovery!

What My Clients Have to Say...
~ "Lauren was super! She was attentive, outgoing, and offered support above and beyond! Lauren answered all our questions during the encapsulation and following via phone. She was so kind and even shared her personal experiences as a new mom with me to rest some of my worried and anxiety. I would highly recommend this service to family and friends because I believe taking the capsules has made my recovery and transition from giving birth smooth." - JT, Darlington, MD
~ "Lauren was amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed talking with her during her visits. She was meticulous when it came to clearing and safe food preparation."

~ "Lauren was great! Very friendly, respectful of the postpartum time and she left our sink the whitest I've ever seen! I also appreciated her follow-up that showed she really cared about helping new moms." - MP, Westminster, MD
~ "I had no idea about placenta encapsulation before Lauren suggested it. I am glad she did as I have a history of depression and I had been concerned about postpartum depression. Now, almost three weeks after the birth of my baby, I have not eve had any 'Baby Blues'. I attribute this to the pills, and I am greatful I have them for when I go back to work." - MD, Frederick, MD
~ "I am of of the firm mindset that these placenta pills have yielded us many benefits--my energy levels are up, not suffering from any postpartum feelings, and I am lactating like a cow! The baby is doing great, not fussy or colicky, and is doing her 'duty' several times a day. Later on down the line, if we are blessed with more children, we will certainly NOT go without the placenta encapsulation. We are true believers in the power of this awesome science."
