Because of Brenda and her placenta encapsulation services, I sit here a satisfied, relaxed mama of two with a baby sleeping on my lap and a three year old snuggled in his bed. It’s safe to say, the happy Liz is back after a long and trying pregnancy.
With my first son, I didn’t experience any PPD and a minimal amount of the baby blues. This pregnancy was different though. I was mothering a 2 year old, working and my husband and I lost his mother to melanoma when I was half way through my pregnancy. I started out sick, experienced the biggest loss to date and then had excruciating sciatica and back pain toward the end. Needless to say, it wasn’t the dream pregnancy I had previously had with Thomas.
I feared how I was going to survive the aftermath with a new born and certainly didn’t want him to be welcomed by an overwhelmed, saddened mom.
When I had first heard of Brenda’s services I was intrigued and when I got toward the end of my pregnancy it became a necessity to try placenta encapsulation.
Brenda came to the house while I was in the hospital. We were all blown away with the amount of work and all the pluses that come along with the service. I drank the smoothie at the hospital and just as Brenda had explained, I had a soon to follow deep slumber–something that I never had with Thomas. It really helped me get back on my feet post delivery. When I got home there was a beautiful display of placenta artwork, capsules, and literature.
I certainly felt more of the baby blues this time (as expected). When taking the pills, I can feel an almost immediate surge in energy and lightened mood. I have been pleasantly surprised at how well I have been able to handle the transition from one to two children while returning to work after 2 weeks (and have Christmas mixed in, too). I would recommend Placenta Works to everyone, no matter what their circumstances may be, for an over all feeling of well-being post delivery. It’s amazing!
