happy that I did it!

I was initially on the fence about placenta encapsulation but now I am so happy that I did it! Our daughter was born at night, so Amy picked up the placenta first thing the next morning and I had my pills by that afternoon! Although this is my first child (so I have no direct comparison from previous births to make) I do believe that the placenta pills made the transition into motherhood much easier than it could have been! I have been surprised at how much energy I have and how smoothly the healing process has gone! I have had none of the typical mood swings or hot flashes that are typical in the postpartum period. I had my 6 week postpartum visit with my OB/GYN today and she even said ‘it sounds like things are going too well!’
