Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has honored the placenta as a powerful and invaluable part of the postpartum healing process for thousands of years. After giving birth many new mothers experience blood loss, fatigue, and a drop in their high pregnancy hormones; all of which are thought of as key factors in the development of the “baby blues” and postpartum depression (PPD). Full of Qi, life energy, the placenta aids in postpartum wellness by replenishing your system with natural iron & protein and helps reintroduce these essential hormones back into your system.
The “baby blues” affects the majority of women. It is so common that it is not even considered a disorder.
Symptoms are mood instability, weepiness, sadness, lack of concentration, anxiety and feelings of dependency.
All this is caused by rapid hormonal changes, fatigue and sleep deprivation and the physical and emotional stress of giving birth and caring for a newborn.
Using the placenta for its medicinal properties during the postpartum period is a natural & healthy way you can help alleviate these symptoms.
The placenta not only has a crucial function while you’re baby is growing inside of you but also has amazing abilities during the postpartum period. It can heal, sustain, and strengthen.
