    Yes I have. DS is 3 months and I only have a few capsules left. On days I took them I thought I was less stressed.

    How did you decide to have your placenta encapsulated? Did you have a doula who offered it or?

    Would you do it again?

    I did. She collected placenta, encapsulated it, and returned them with the cord dried in my sons name, and some placenta art, which was a nice touch.

    I personally wouldn't because I did mine myself last time and found it super easy. But if the thought of it was too much or I was time poor/single then yes I would absolutely use one

    I heard it helps prevent pnd (family history & personal history of depression/anxiety) so thought it was worth a shot! Plus I had a homebirth so had to do something with the placenta. My midwives knew a lady who did it so they took my placenta & brought back the capsules. and yes I will do it again.

    Eta: she dried the cord for me as a keepsake too.

    They dry the placenta, grind it up & put it in capsules which you than eat.

    I had basically the same encapsulation service except the cord was dried in a nice shape. Mine was done in the traditional Chinese method - steamed then dehydrated, ground and made into capsules.

    I've already booked again for my next baby
