Don’t worry. I am not going to be showing photos of placentas, or blood or anything else of that matter in this blog. While placentas are fascinating and wondrous, they do bring a cringe to most people’s faces when they are talked about. Admit it, it is pretty amazing that our body grows this whole extra organ to grow and support life and then completely discarded after birth. It deserves, at the very least, a round of applause. It was the best friend to your little one for nine months.
While placenta pills are the base of this service, this is all about support. Putting a moms mind at ease that she has a knowledgeable and understanding person she can contact to answer questions, to get professional referrals or just someone to say that ’this is totally normal’. Sometimes just knowing that you can call or text someone who has the knowledge of a postpartum doula can lessen stress. Because whoever posts on mom boards or groups and gets one straight answer and solved the problem without causing MORE stress. While they can be a great resource, it can also be very intimidating to put yourself out there on the internet if there is an issue or you are afraid that it may be a ‘stupid’ question.
Our placenta encapsulation service includes six weeks of text support, weekly check-ins by a doula, and an in home visit. We want to ensure you are taking the proper dosage, there are no complications with taking your pills or otherwise and that your questions as a new mom can be answered without judgement. Whether it is needed more in home support, a referral to an osteopath, recipes for amazing lactation aids or just an ear to vent. Some days it’s the simple things that can bring a new mom joy, like a shower, ALONE! Every new family is different in their needs but we want to make sure that you know you are supported and have someone to reach out to.
This is what we are here to do for you!
