    Default Placenta Encapsulation

    Has anybody had this done in Sydney?
    I've probably left it too late, my head has been up my bum for the last few weeks.
    I'm looking for recommendations of where to get it done and, as time isn't on my side, I thought I'd ask in here rather than take a risk and end up sick from a dodgy place doing it.

    Any info would be great

    I only have a half recommendation as it didn't happen in the end (complications with the birth meant my placenta got sent away! ) but I'd booked this with Ally from The Nurtured Bebe in Sydney. I thought she was really lovely, understanding, professional - I plan to book her again next time to try again!

    Thanks Deku, that's exactly the kind of thing I was looking for.
    Just waiting on a price range now

    Anyone had this done and would recommend it or didn't feel any better for it?

    I encapsulated my own. I actually ended up with PND with DS1 and it really wasn't that bad until I ran out of my pills when he was 9months old. Possibly just coincidence, but I swear by them now.

    I've never had PND before but I'm going to have a lot more on my plate with three children and a school run from day one.
    I'm feeling overwhelmed already so I thought, why not give this a shot.
    Can't hurt and if it helps, great.

    Really interesting the way it worked out for you, trustno1.
    I hope you didn't suffer for too long after your capsules ran out.

    Oh, well if I manage to get it done I will let you know how I feel on them.

    My last baby was an avid feeder.
    It really took it out of me and I lost a lot of weight. I was all but bald afterwards too.
    I reckon if this one is half as bad I could do with the extra boost and like you say, can't do any harm. From what I've read it's all good.

    I told my sister what I was looking to do and she didn't belive me, hahaha.
    I think that's just a wee bit hippyville for her.
