Whilst I was pregnant I heard about encapsulation and did some research on it, looking at the benefits which aren't scientifically proven but I thought its something worth giving a go, as I wanted to have a go at breast feeding as my first son I tried to breast feed but my milk supply fell short. I got in touch with Fiona regarding the encapsulation and she answered any questions or concerns I had about this. D-day come and we had a healthy happy 8lb 1oz little boy we packed my placenta up and my partner met fiona at home (collection is possible but my partner was going home anyway so it saved her travelling) she picked it up straight away and I had the capsules and cream back within 24 hours as well as the placenta prints and the keep sake cord. Since taking the capsules I have felt full of energy despite the sleepless nights and running around after a 2 year old! My postnatal bleeding reduced to almost nothing in the first week of having him! I had 5days of not taking the capsules and I honestly felt the difference, I felt exhausted! 6 weeks on and my little boy is exclusively breastfed I have a fantastic milk supply and I feel great and non of those nasty baby blues! Also would highly recommend purchasing her book 'What Would Fiona Do' such a helpful read especially for first time mums, its been a huge help with the breastfeeding!
A big yes to the placenta pills.
This is my third baby all by cesarean section.
My last baby was failure to thrive and I was told to stop Breastfeeding, I didn’t. I went on tablets to help my milk supply etc, etc.
This time I have taken placenta pills and my milk supply has been plenty and my baby’s weight has gone up gradually, plus she has been much more content than my last babies were. So definitely an increase in my milk supply. Which also leads to a better nights sleep, both of us sleep considerably better than with my previous babies. So I am feeling much more alert and ready to face the day! I have more energy.
I would definitely say it's down to the tablets and I would 100% recommend anyone to try them. My moods have been fine too I have not felt low or unhappy. I will happily shout from the roof tops how fab placenta encapsulation is.
