A cousin of mine had encapsulated her placenta with her second son and she raved about how happy she was that she did. I choose to take her advice and encapsulate mine with my first child. After giving birth to a 10lb 5oz bundle of joy there was a lot of healing that needed to take place. Amy came to the hospital the day he was born to pick up my placenta and dropped it off encapsulated the next day. I was loving my new role as Mom and was shocked at how well I was adjusting to the lack of sleep and how quickly my body was healing and producing milk. After 8 weeks I finished my pills and immediately noticed my lack of energy. I am so thankful that I choose to encapsulate my placenta because it really helped me the first few weeks when lack of sleep can be so draining.
