  • I live for the placenta shots. An entire organ the body creates for the sole purpose of supporting the growth of another human being. I will never stop being fascinated. This is the second heart shaped placenta that I’ve come across by the way!

  • Did you know that when a placenta is unfurled and laid out flat, its tissue covers up to 150 square feet?! 🤯 A whole new organ that your body makes to grow your baby. Unreal. Also, placenta in German translates to “mother cake” in English!

  • The placenta, or as I like to call it: the OG hammock. 
Did you know the placenta is the only organ  that naturally expels itself once its purpose is fulfilled?  WIth each pregnancy, a brand new placenta grows and is genetically distinct to that pregnancy and child.  And once the baby is born, the birthing person then births the placenta.  Bidding farewell to the organ that gave our babies everything they needed to reach us Earth-side.  Our bodies are so incredible. ✨

  • NOURISHING POSTPARTUM -  New mothers I always encourage you to put some thought and planning into how you would like to be fed and cared for during the weeks following the birth of your new baby.  In my opinion, placenta encapsulation should be high on the list!  The benefits are amazing!  Just a note - Family members of new mothers, we totally understand - you want to be involved in the birth, you want to see the fresh new little bundle as soon as possible - but please discuss with your expecting loved one and give then space in this moment if that is what they desire. Some are the more the merrier type, but many would like to keep that sacred messy space all to themselves - - POSTPARTUM is YOUR time to shine for this new being & new parents. 
Do their laundry - new parents want to spend every minute with their new little one.  Cook healthy nourishing meals for new parents – healing the mother and keeping the partner’s energy up so that they together can tend to baby’s every need….you might even be able to share the meal together bedside.  Clean their home - help them feel relaxed and loved by tidying up!  There are so many things to do for new families that require minimal effort but mean the world!!

  • Totally still loving on my placenta 🥰 
Did you know that their are actually two layers to the placenta amniotic sac? Did you know that one could break and then the other a little later or after baby's birth? 
There is the amnion and the chorion. The amnion layer is closer to the baby and the chorion is the outer layer. 
You can see both layers are present here. The amnion is the lighter, thinner layer, and the chorion is thicker and up towards the top of the picture. 
Typically the two layers grow together, but they have also been known to grow completely separate.

  • Did you know there are two layers of membranes protecting the baby during pregnancy? The chorion is the outer layer, on the right of the photograph, has its own blood supply and produces antibodies to protect the baby from invading pathogens. The amnion, on the left, covers the top of the fetal side of the placenta all the way to the base of the umbilical cord and serves to produce amniotic fluid throughout the pregnancy. Both layers surround the baby and make up the amniotic sac, they appear as one until sometimes seperated after birth.

  • Progesterone is one of three hormones that have been found in encapsulated placenta in levels high enough to cause a physiological effect on a person. 
Progesterone is used widely by OBs and Midwives to help treat Postpartum Depression. Researchers at  Pope Paul VI Institute said "The effects of progesterone on the treatment of depression, fatigue, crying, anxiety, helplessness, strange thoughts, poor appetite and night sweats were all statistically highly significant when progesterone was used. In fact, the incidence of these symptoms decreased significantly." http://www.naprotechnology.com/depression.htm

  • Wunderwerk-Placenta TEIL 2 – Nabelschnur brennen? Noch nicht gehört? Okay, eins nach dem anderen.. Heute berichte ich von verschiedenen Möglichkeiten, die Nabelschnur zu durchtrennen und zu versorgen.
Die übliche Variante, nach der Geburt Kind und Placenta voneinander zu lösen, ist die Nabelschnur mit der Schere (speziell dafür gemachte Nabelschnurschere) durchzuschneiden. In unserem Kulturkreis ist es gewöhnlich, dass diese Aufgabe als Ritual der Kindspapa bzw. die Co-Mama übernimmt. Der Gedanke dahinter ist, dass diese durch diese Handlung auch in den Ablauf der Geburt mit einbezogen werden. 
Meine Gedanken dazu gehen allerdings in eine andere Richtung. Zum einen können die geburtsbegleitenden Personen, wenn das von allen gewollt ist, auch wunderbar und intensiv auf andere Weise involviert werden. Zum anderen ist es ein unbeschreiblich bedeutender Akt, wenn die Verbindungsschnur zwischen dem Kind und der an der Mutter haftenden Placenta durchtrennt wird. Wenn diese Trennung durch jemand anderen als Mama und Kind vollzogen wird, regt das Widerstände in mir. Es lohnt sich nicht nur fürs Kind, sich bewusst von dieser Verbindung zu lösen, auch die Mutter darf sich in diesem Moment von der Schwangerschaft, von der Geburt und von der verkörperlichten Bindung zu ihrem Kind trennen. Natürlich haben Mutter und Kind weiterhin ihre Bindung, nichtsdestotrotz ist es ein bedeutsamer Akt, dessen emotionale Kraft nicht übersehen werden möchte.
Eine weitere Möglichkeit, die Trennung zu vollziehen ist, die Nabelschnur durchzubrennen. Abgefahren oder? Wetten, davon hast DU noch nichts gehört? Das ist ein für mich ganz besonderes Ritual, weil es mit ganz viel Ruhe und Stille, Kerzenlicht und Innehalten verbunden ist... .

  • Placenta Encapsulation. I had heard a lot about women saving their placenta and either freezing it to put into smoothies or encapsulating it and taking it in supplement form. I knew  it was something I wanted to do. The custom of consuming the placenta is centuries old, practiced most often in Chinese medicine and isn’t very common in the US but I do hear more and more women are doing it. 
The benefits of consuming your placenta can 
Include increased release of the hormone oxytocin, which helps the uterus return to normal size, 
increases in CRH, a stress-reducing hormone, a decrease in post-partum depression levels and helps to restore iron levels in the blood and can help  milk production.

For me, I wanted to try it to help decrease postpartum blues. I ended up finding a woman here locally who picks it up from the hospital, steams it, dehydrates it, grounds it, and places it into pills. Specifically along with my placenta she added in some Chinese herbs lemon balm 🍋
ashwagandha, ginger root, nettle leaf 🍃 , yellow dock, and passion flower. 🌺

She delivered it back to me on day 3 postpartum and I’ve been taking it ever since. I started off with 3-5 capsules a day for the first two weeks and after two weeks, go down to 1-3 capsules per day. 
If you really think about it, the placenta is a magical organ. It connects our sweet babies to us and is where the mothers and babies blood meets to exchange nutrients. How amazing is it that women can grow an entire new organ and then just release it when it’s no longer needed? I think it’s pretty incredible. 
If anyone is pregnant and wants the contact information let me know or if you have encapsulated your placenta, what was your experience like? 🤗

  • ✨ Placenta Encapsulation - What it is & Benefits ✨
​
Placenta encapsulation is a way to prepare the placenta to be consumed in capsule form by the birthing mother. Capsules are completely tasteless and are similar to an herbal supplement in size and shape. 
The placenta is the "lifeline" from the mother to the baby, an organ that is rich in vitamins, nutrients, proteins and stem cells. By replenishing the body with these essential nutrients, mothers have reported many benefits postpartum. 
These benefits include:
✨More energy
✨Decrease in "baby blues"
✨Faster healing time
✨An increase in milk production ✨Plus many more!

What benefits have you received from placenta encapsulation?

Curious but have questions? Message me! I’d love to chat 💗

  • | Love, love, love ♡ Vasta doulana olen alkanut todella rakastaa istukoita. Ihastelen, ihmettelen ja kunnioitan niiden kykyä muodostua ja kasvaa kohdussa samalla raviten, kasvattaen ja ylipäätään mahdollistaen vauvan kasvun. 🌱 Istukka kehittyy tyhjästä, on kokonainen elin, jonka tehtävä on huolehtia kohtuvauvasta. Jokainen istukka on vähän eri kokoinen, näköinen ja muotoinenkin. Napanuoratkin niin ainutlaatuisia.

Teen erittäin mielelläni asiakkaalleni istukkaprintin muistoksi oman vauvan elämänpuusta. Kenellekään en näitä tyrkytä, mutta ota ihmeessä puheeksi kanssani, jos tällaisen haluaisit. ❤️ Ihana kuva asiakkaan kodinhoitohuoneen lattialta keskeltä printtien tekoa on Maria Hedengrenin @mariahedengrenphotos ottama. Printtien teko onnistuu yhtä lailla myös sairaalasynnytyksessä.

  • | Love, love, love ♡ Vasta doulana olen alkanut todella rakastaa istukoita. Ihastelen, ihmettelen ja kunnioitan niiden kykyä muodostua ja kasvaa kohdussa samalla raviten, kasvattaen ja ylipäätään mahdollistaen vauvan kasvun. 🌱 Istukka kehittyy tyhjästä, on kokonainen elin, jonka tehtävä on huolehtia kohtuvauvasta. Jokainen istukka on vähän eri kokoinen, näköinen ja muotoinenkin. Napanuoratkin niin ainutlaatuisia.

  • PLACENTA ~ ENCAPSULATION 
I share on stories today that I had my doula encapsulate my placenta for both my babies
•
This is a practice that has been around for centuries in Eastern Medicine but is just picking up more steam in the West
•
More and more women are consuming their placenta for the following benefits :
• milk coming in faster + better
• less baby blues or PPD
• iron, nutrients and mineral benefits found in placenta to renourish the body
• increase in oxytocin and uterus returning to normal size more quickly
• increase in CRH - stress reducing hormone
•
The unfortunate piece of this all is that there haven’t been any well done double blinded , large sizes studies on all of these benefits
•
Science is still catching up on its understanding on the placenta. What we do know is that the vast majority of mammals consume their placentas
•
The anecdotal evidence is absolutely there for women experiencing all of the above benefits whether placebo effect or not : do we really care?? I know that I have experienced an immediate effect of my milk within taking 1-2 doses each time with both children. So whether scientists have spent time and money researching this yet or not - I am walking proof of the benefits
•
We also know that the body creates three times the CRH hormone during third trimester. We also know in mothers of newborns those levels temporarily tank. Studies have shown that consuming your placenta post partum can suspend that drop in CRH that your body would normally go through without it. Hence helping to prevent PPD or baby blues. Studies are still working to prove this firmly - but again. I think another fantastic reason to consume
•
I am so glad I made this choice both times with my sons. My energy is good considering the lack of sleep , my milk came in fully days 3/4, and that’s even with Roman having a tongue tie
•
I highly recommend looking into this option when pregnant. Have any questions ? Leave them below!

  • You all know I love #placentas 🤩
But did you know this? 
Your midwife will be more than happy to give you a guided tour of yours if you ask 👍
⭐ #mothersspirit #lifeofadoula

Did you know there are two layers of membranes protecting the baby during pregnancy? The chorion is the outer layer, on the right of the photograph, has its own blood supply and produces antibodies to protect the baby from invading pathogens. The amnion, on the left, covers the top of the fetal side of the placenta all the way to the base of the umbilical cord and serves to produce amniotic fluid throughout the pregnancy. Both layers surround the baby and make up the amniotic sac, they appear as one until sometimes seperated after birth.

  • The placenta, the amazing temporary organ that you grow along with your baby. This incredible work of art can do some amazing things. 
This organ works as your baby’s lungs, giving them oxygen, as kidneys, filtering waste, and as their gastrointestinal, supplying nutrients and antibodies. 
Did you know that fetal cells, your baby’s DNA, inhabit your body during pregnancy? They’ve found fetal cells in mothers even after 27 years postpartum. Some studies even suggest that these cells will travel to certain parts of the mothers body to heal. What better proof that our children change us, they are forever part of our beings, giving us healing. 
Sometimes, more commonly now than 10 years ago, the placenta is ingested. This can be done through encapsulating or mixing small pieces into smoothies or other foods. 
It’s even common practice for home birth midwives to put a small piece in the cheek to manage a postpartum hemorrhage. 
Often, first time moms are taken by surprise that they will be birthing one of these along with their cute little one, but don’t worry, I promise it’s much easier than the tiny human that just came out of there. 
These are just a few reasons the placenta is one of the coolest things about making a baby. 
What did you do with your placenta?

  • ❤️PARA OS APAIXONADOS POR PLACENTA COMO NÓS..❤️ 📍A placenta é um órgão que tem como papel principal promover a comunicação entre a mãe e o feto e, assim, garantir as condições ideais para o desenvolvimento do feto. As principais funções da placenta são:
🔹Fornecer nutrientes e oxigênio para o bebê;
🔹Estimular a produção de hormônios essenciais para a gestação;
🔹Fornecer proteção imunológica ao bebê;
🔹Entre outros... 📍É formado por duas faces: uma fica em contato com o útero materno, enquanto a outra é ligada ao bebê, pelo cordão umbilical. 🌳A placenta é um órgão incrivelmente precioso e completo, sendo também o único órgão “usa e joga fora” que temos. 🌳Representa as raízes da criança no terreno da mãe. 🌳É feita de dois organismos diferentes e incompatíveis, mas funciona como um único órgão, em completa harmonia. 🌳Faz todas as funções de um corpo humano.

  • Nooooo! Just ran out of my Ningxia. When I first got my Starter Kit it came with two packets of this stuff. I honestly didn't think I needed it.  I eat well.  I take a variety of vitamins.  I get good sleep.  I exercise.  Then I learned of how Ningxia really helps with supporting a healthy placenta in pregnancy so I started taking it daily when trying to conceive.

For fun and to make sure I keep with it one of my friends suggested I try Ningxia Red for 30 days to see how it made me feel.  So I’m stocking up for the month of February and taking the Ningxia Red challenge! Taking 1-2oz of this magical antioxidant juice everyday in February.

Benefits of taking Ningxia Red:
* Natural energy
* Weight management
* Healthy skin, hair, and nails
* Minimized sugar cravings
* Mental clarity
* Immune support
* Eye and cardiovascular health
* Improved athletic performance
* Support for healthy joints and muscles
* Seasonal respiratory support
* Delicious taste with no “junk-juice” (e.g., apple, white grape, pear, etc.) or added sugar.
* Contains therapeutic grade essential oils of yuzu, lemon, tangerine and orange.
* Contains natural antioxidants which support the body from normal oxidative stress.
* Contains the highest levels of naturally occurring, age-defying S-ORAC activity. * Studies have shown that S-ORAC supports cardiovascular health, supports healthy immune function, and supports healthy eye function.
* Supports the natural detoxification process on a daily basis.
* Natural form of energy without sugar, caffeine, or other artificial stimulants.
* Only 20 calories per 1 ounce serving; 0 grams of Fat; 5 grams of Total Carbohydrates; 2 grams of Sugar; and <5 mg of Sodium.

  • Milo’s Birth Tree, we finally had a chance to plant little mans placenta, the organ that kept him alive for 10 months inside me, but will now nourish his own little and one day big fig tree :) You really could feel the honouring of this part of myself and him while planting it, we sprinkled it with ganga water to bless it. Felt so good to finally do some gardening again after the last few months adjusting to new motherhood. 
We decided to plant his tree in a pot so he can take it with him when he grows older and we can honour it in our garden (also so it doesn’t fry in the Australian heat for easy moving) 
Very special memory 💗

  • Thank you  @dauntless_doula for these placenta fun facts! 
Some fun facts about the placenta. ❣️• The placenta is made up of 50% cells from the mother and 50% of the cells from the baby. ❣️Although the placenta develops inside the mother, the father actually helps to create the organ. When the sperm fertilizes the egg, a blastocyst is formed. This then becomes the placenta and the baby. ❣️A placenta is typically about 1/6th the weight of the baby (1-3 lbs). ❣️A baby can send stem cells through the placenta to heal its mother's organs if they are struggling, including the brain, liver, kidney and lung. The placenta also creates cells to protect the mother’s heart and fend of breast cancer. ❣️The placenta preforms the duties of a lung, liver, kidney and its own endocrine system providing all the hormones for both mama and baby throughout pregnancy.  #placentalove #placenta #doula #blackdoula #blackdoulas #blackdoulasmatter @huffpost

  • Did you know that you have a wound the size of a dinner plate on your uterus after baby is born? Now, if that were on the outside of your body would you be hosting dinner for family days after baby was born?!?! Wonder what you can do to help healing after birth? Join us for our Beyond the Birth workshop.

the only temporary organ, a multifunctional organ, acting as baby's lungs to supply oxygen, kidneys to filter out waste, and as gastrointestinal and immune systems by delivering nutrients and antibodies.
• MATERNAL SIDE:
attached to uterine wall
• FETAL SIDE:
connected to baby via umbilical cord
✨The placenta detaches from the inside of the uterus after the baby is born, this leaves behind a wound 6-8 inches in diameter that needs time for healing to ward off infection and hemorrhaging—at least 4-6 weeks for the wound to completely heal. 
One of the many reasons birth givers need lots of rest and community care to recover & heal✨

**that is an internal wound the size of a dinner plate**

  • Árvore da vida, mais conhecida como PLACENTA, ela só existe durante a gestação e tem as funções de, aconchegar o bebê dentro do útero, transferir nutrientes e o oxigênio da mãe para o bebê e secretar alguns hormônios fundamentais para esta fase.

Obs. Essa cor rosa nao E da placenta, a cor real dela é vermelho vivo, isso foi da tinta que foi usada para fazer a árvore da vida pra mãe levar para casa.

  • LOVE this placenta pic by @viviandoula that shows the placenta so clearly.
-
The maternal side attaches to the uterine wall, and the fetal side attaches to the baby via the umbilical cord.
-
We produce a temporary organ that sustains a life. How cool is that??
Some things that placentas do: enable respiratory gas exchange, transport nutrients, eliminate fetal waste products, and help with fetal growth and development.
- 
Anyone else as obsessed with placentas as I am? 🙋🏼‍♀️😂
