We provide a placenta print for clients who book both encapsulation services & postpartum care with us. ♡ Curious about encapsulation? Send us a message!

Placenta consumption is a common part of postpartum  healing in many cultures. Benefits include more stable moods, increased milk supply, and decreased healing time. We process placentas into capsules and tinctures following food safety guidelines. Ask us if it can help you. ~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~• #birth #baby  #doula #postpartumdoula

Are you at the end of your pregnancy and finding yourself overwhelmed with comments from others? 
You are not alone. 
Instead of smiling politely, use one of our favorite responses to the worst comments you'll get: jokes about your size. 
What sorts of comments did you hear during your final weeks of pregnancy? Did you come up with a funny response to any of them (even several hours later that you wish you had thought of in the moment)? The full blog is up on our website! Link in bio ♡ ~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~• #birth #baby  #doula #postpartumdoula

Raise your hand if you have or have had a placenta in your freezer ✋😊 (or drop a 😳 if you’ve had a placenta go missing from your freezer!! That’s a story for another day...😬😂) We have plans to plant Satya’s placenta under a new crab apple tree in our yard this fall and I can’t wait to watch it bloom year after year! Taking it medicinally was so healing for me after all three births, but truth be told, I was totally disgusted by placentas until a few years ago. And I actually didn’t even know what a placenta was until my first friend had a baby- when I was 23!! (Thanks public school health classes...🙄) I’m so grateful there’s growing awareness around this about amazing organ and its life-sustaining magic.
.

If you’re clueless or queezy about placentas, I encourage you to watch the “Placenta 101” class on @pranamama.tv

This is probably the BEST video of a deep latch I’ve ever seen!  Every person planning to breast/chestfeed should watch this 💕

Words and tips from @milkymamallc - “A deep latch Is very important for both comfort and your milk supply. It’s important for baby’s mouth to be open wide before latching to prevent nipple pain and ensure adequate milk transfer. ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Here are some tips on how to obtain a deep latch:⁣ ⁣
⁣.
1. Hold your breast so that your thumb is near your baby’s upper jaw and your fingers near his lower jaw. Your fingers need to be off your areola so there is enough room for your baby’s jaw to be placed away from your nipple. This is called the “Sandwich Hold” – holding your breast like you would hold a sandwich to eat.⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣.
2. Support your baby’s head with your thumb by one ear and your fingers by your baby’s other ear with the palm of your hand across your baby’s shoulders.⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣.
3. Tilt your baby’s head so his chin is off his chest and position him with his nose across from your nipple.⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣.
4. As your baby opens his mouth, place his lower jaw onto your areola first before tilting his head to place his upper jaw onto your breast. This is called an “Asymmetrical Latch”. An asymmetrical latch is off-centered from your nipple, so you should be able to see some of your areola above baby’s upper lip.⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣.
5. Your nipple should remain round and not appear creased or flattened after unlatching.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣.

We're in LOVE with this cordkeepsake 😍. Look at those vessels that carried nutrients to baby in utero! The rest of this placenta is off to nourish mom postpartum. Have questions about #placentaconsumption? Let us know!

The placenta is an amazing organ that the body creates, helps grow and sustain life in the womb, and provides bio available nutrients and hormones that can be consumed after birth!

Properties including:
♡ Prolactin and Human Placental Lactogen (stimulates milk production)
♡ Oxytocin (bonding, feel good, contracts uterus, heals wounds)
♡ Corticotropin Releasing Hormone (relieves stress, supports adrenals, fights depression)
♡ Progesterone (prepares mammories for lactation) ♡ Hemoglobin (transports oxygen throughout the body, increases iron stores) ♡ Placental Growth Hormone (promotes break down of stored fats, sending them to baby) ♡ Estrogen (increases uterine strength and prepares mammories for lactation)
♡ Phosphorus (aids digestion, hormone balance, cell repair, and nutrient utilization)
♡ Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (regulates metabolism) ♡ Cortisone (relieves inflammation, pain, and swelling) ♡ Urokinase Inhibiting Factor and Factor XIII (lessons bleeding, and promotes faster healing) ♡ Interferon (enhances immunity and inhibits virus reproduction ~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~• #birth #baby  #doula #postpartumdoula

Today's the last day to sign up for this course. This is my LAST SERIES before taking a break to birth my own baby this fall! If you're delivering this winter, this series is for you. If these dates don't work, please contact me about customizable, private classes. This series and others will be back this winter as part of a new endeavor with @cvadoulas ! Be on the look out for exciting new options! 
Childbirth classes help build your confidence in your body's ability to give birth. They provide a safe space where you can discuss your fears about labor and birth with a knowledgeable teacher and other couples with similar concerns. A comprehensive, naturally-minded childbirth class with Well-Rounded Women Care covers prenatal care & provider selection along with pregnancy nutrition, labor expectations, hands-on coping techniques & pain management strategies, thorough postpartum preparation and newborn care. Visit www.wellroundedwomancare.com for more information. •~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•
