“I looked into a doula because I heard other women say there were helpful in labor. I had no idea how much I would rely on you for pain, motivation & physical support even during a relatively straightforward labor. I can’t imagine trying to do that without you!”
I struggled a lot after the birth of my first child – low milk supply, PND symptoms, etc – and I heard that placenta encapsulation had the potential to help with these issues.
My recovery and milk supply were 100% better with this birth than with my first birth! In part, this had to do with my shorter labor and the time of the birth. But I’m certain the capsules also gave me more energy, helped me be more balanced, and increased my milk supply.
I would definitely recommend it. Placenta encapsulation made the recovery after my second birth so much easier than the recovery after my first birth.
