What is Encapsulation?
Placenta encapsulation is the process of dehydrating and grounding the placenta into a powder, and placing it into small capsules to take as needed.
Taking placenta pills, can help with the fluctuating hormones and loss of vitamins and nutrients after birth, which can help aid in a easier transition during your postpartum recovery.
