My midwife recommended I do placenta encapsulation before the birth of my third bub as my previous two births has resulted in very, very low iron levels. And consequently not feeling well.
So I arranged for a lovely lady to come and collect my placenta a few hours after birth. She returned my capsules the following day. Cost $200. She also brought me 'mothers broth' which is like a stock made from the placenta that you can freeze and put into smoothies. And a little piece of the cord, kind of freeze dried into a pendant! I didn't use the mothers broth but took the capsules for a few weeks afterwards and felt the best I ever had after birth and no issues with anaemia 😄 It was very easy to arrange.
