The custom of consuming the placenta, often done as placental encapsulation, is centuries old, practiced most often in Chinese medicine. Tradition and holistic medical customs embrace a number of potential advantages which come from ingesting the placenta.
Among these possible benefits are:
Increased release of the hormone oxytocin, which helps the uterus return to normal size and encourages bonding with the infant. Increase in CRH, a stress-reducing hormone. Decrease in post-partum depression levels. Restoration of iron levels in the blood, and increase in milk production.
Sam Magpi of Magpi Midwifery offers placenta encapsulation services, fertility counseling, and wellbody services in addition to homebirth midwifery.
Since 2010 Euphoric Herbals has helped families, friends, and sisters in lactation increase milk supply naturally. Founder, certified herbalist and certified lactation counselor Cindy Collins developed her first lactation blend after giving birth to her third son, then expanded the line with new blends, herbal teas and salves for the childbearing year. Though originally a means of healing for her community and doula clients, Cindy soon opened her online shop to help even more women along their journey to holistic health.
From conception until they reach your mailbox, every Euphoric Herbal item is handcrafted by Cindy and her super team of assistants. We create, package, label and ship each product off with lots of love and gratitude. At the end of each month, we donate $1 of every order to a charity that’s making a difference.
We believe a mother’s love can change the world—thanks to your support, we get to do our small part to help it along.
