I do a raw flash frozen preparation of your placenta for the purpose of consuming in smoothies. I will pick up your placenta at the hospital (or your home), prepare it for you and come to your home within 48hours with a bag of frozen placenta pieces. They typically last 3-5 weeks (depending on the size of your placenta and how often you consume them). I will instruct you on how to use them and make suggestions for preparing your own smoothies. If I am also providing postpartum doula services I will be happy to make your smoothies for you.

One of the main reasons your placenta is so beneficial after birth is because it is rich in the following hormones:

Gonadotropin: Stabilizes mood and lessons uterine cramping.

Prolactin: Encourages lactation and increases milk supply.

Oxytocin: Encourages bonding, increase let-down reflex. Decreases pain and counteract stress hormones.

Thyroid stimulating hormone: Boosts energy and helps recovery from stressful/traumatic events.

Cortisone: Combats stress and releases energy stores.

 Interferon: Stimulates the immune system to protect against infections.

Corticotropin Releasing Hormone: Helps prevent postpartum depression; low levels of CRH are found in women with postpartum depression.

Prostaglandins: Anti-inflammatory and encourages uterus to return to its normal size.

Hemoglobin: Replenish iron stores, helping to prevent anemia.

Urokinase Inhibiting Factor & Factor XIII: Stops bleeding and facilitates wound healing.

Gammaglobulin: Immune booster and helps to protect against postpartum infections.

Human Placental Lactogen (hPL): Promotes mammary gland growth and regulates maternal glucose, protein, and fat levels. *
