I used Amy’s placenta encapsulation services and was very happy with them. Correspondence via email was easy in the lead-up to my birth, and she was immediately reachable by phone even at the inconvenient hour of 2:00am and came to pick up the placenta soon after. The pills were delivered the next day, and it was a pleasure to meet her. If I had been in the market for doula services, I would have considered hiring her.
Regarding the pills themselves, I feel they helped me a lot. This was my fourth post-partum experience but the only one in which my placenta was saved, so I have direct comparisons. I’m sure that my prior experiences and perspective helped me through those crazy first few weeks with a newborn, but I also take into consideration that I was also caring for three other kids and my military husband was gone. I’d say this was my easiest postpartum recovery, both physically and emotionally. I wasn’t overcome by exhaustion, breastfeeding (and my supply) went well, and there were no signs of “baby blues” to any degree. I was most surprised at how much energy I had, which was crucial during those long days and nights. I credit the pills with helping with all of this. I used up the first jar of pills Amy made and am saving the second for future needs. Overall, my experience with Amy and her encapsulation services was wonderful and well worth the money.
