The last two days have really brought me back…to the age of oh-so-dramatic 14. I remember feeling so upset about the silliest things…and knowing they were silly but not being able to stop needing a good cry or fit. Welp folks, 14 year old Sam has made a reappearance. For reasons I don’t even understand, everything upset me yesterday.
This brings me to my next thought. Because I have tendencies toward depression and major mood swings in the past, I have researched placenta encapsulation and decided to “give it a go.” The benefits include:
- they contain your own natural hormones
- perfectly made for you
- balance your system
- replenish depleted iron
- give you more energy
- lessen bleeding postnatally
- been shown to increase milk production
- help you have a happier postpartum period
- hasten return of uterus to pre-pregnancy state
- helpful during menopause
My husband thinks it’s disgusting, as I’m sure many others do, but I am willing to try it knowing that I won’t have the crazy fluctuations of hormones that normally come with giving birth. I suppose having it encapsulated makes me feel a little more detached from the thought of actual consumption. I truly believe that the Lord has given us this organ for a reason and a very useful reason. It may seem gross to our western society, but I am looking forward to the benefits.
