CTV News, Karen Owen - I was also interviewed by Mike Bullard that day :P
ABOUT ME: I live in Calgary Alberta and am the mother of 2 amazing boys who inspire me everyday. I am passionate about natural therapies and remedies so when I heard about placenta encapsulation I was HOOKED! I immediately dove into finding and reading as much information as I possibly could, especially because it was helpful in preventing PPD which I had experienced with my first.
I made it my goal to normalize the use of your own placenta to help you have a better postpartum. I am thrilled to see that now not only are midwives recommending my service but so are MDs. Placenta encapsulation is being explained in child birth education classes and moms are recommending it to other moms on a regular basis.
I suffered from PPD after having my first son in 2008, it seemed like it never went away. I was so disappointed in myself that I couldn't just be HAPPY. I had a lot of difficulties with breastfeeding, something I thought would be totally natural and easy. Because of the stress, depression and pain it took a very long time to establish breastfeeding and produce a good amount of milk. It all just drove me even further into the depression.
With the birth of my second son in November of 2010 I was finally able to experience the benefits of taking our placenta. I am amazed at the energy levels I had after his birth. It was as if that lingering PPD was finally gone! With so many stressors in my life it seemed almost inevitable that I would get PPD again. I haven't yet, and on top of that I've experienced first hand how it helps with millk production and energy levels.
I attended the Birthing, Bonding and Breastfeeding conference in 2009 in Lethbridge, Alberta where I had the privilege of hearing Dr. Nils Bergman, the founder of Kangaroo Mother Care, speak as well as Barbara Harper RN, CD, CCE, Midwife and founder of Waterbirth International. I was also able to complete a Waterbirth Credentialing and Certification Workshop taught by Barbara.
