Way to go Mama! You not only housed a growing baby for the last nine months, birthed that baby in one amazing way or another but you've also engineered the most extraordinary healing supplement!
During a normal vaginal delivery a woman will lose 1/8 to 1/10th of her bodies iron supply. A loss occurring so quickly can be really hard on a mom. High levels of iron are needed in the blood to facilitate oxygen absorption, otherwise your cells are left starving and less able to heal efficiently. The exhaustion can also trigger the "baby blues".
The placenta is a rich source of iron as well as amino acids, essential fats and your own hormones making it the perfect remedy for YOU, helping to ensure a speedy recovery for postpartum mothers. The reintroduction of those hormones may also help to prevent you from getting PPD. Women also often experience a shorter period of post partum bleeding.

*Placenta Keepsake, not for ingestion - $150: I will dehydrate your placenta, grind it and put it in a pretty little amber glass bottle so you can take it with you wherever you go, without the risk of it going bad*
PLEASE let me know if cost is an issue! I don't want you to miss out on this because you can't afford it!! I have done payment plans and price adjustments according to income.

WHY HIRE ME?
I follow OSHA standards having successfully completed a Bloodborne Pathogens (BBP) Training course for the past 7 years in a row (in accordance with the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard 29 CFR 1910.1030). I conform to local health department guidlines for food preparation and safety. Your placenta is prepared using ONLY and ALL sterilized equipment and in a sterile environment and while wearing disposable gloves!
AFTER BIRTH INSTRUCTIONS
Home birth: following the cutting of the cord place the placenta in a couple layers of ziplocs and into the fridge.
Hospital birth/c-section: Please bring a couple large freezer bags to store your placenta in, your caregivers - nurse, midwife, etc. will place the placenta in the bags for you. You can then place it in a cooler with ice. A lunch sized cooler is all you need. If you don't have a cooler, ask the nurses if they could supply a bucket or an extra ziploc bag to store ice in to keep the placenta cool.
Call ASAP - next morning if babe comes in the night. Ideally the process should take place within about 48 hours of birth. Placentas stored in the fridge can still be used if they have not spoiled (usually no more than a week maximum).
Frozen placentas can be used as well even if they've been in the freezer for a number of years - as long as they were packaged properly and were kept frozen the entire time.
