I paid, I think, $250 or so to have it done last time. This time, we bought a capsule machine, and dh is going to do it for me. We plan on adding a little lemon balm for an extra mood boost, and milk thistle for a breastmilk boost.
If for some reason I were unable to use my placenta, I am terrified of what might happen. I really don't want to go there again.
Idk about your midwife, but I'm pretty sure Jess Stahle does encapsulation, and she lives quite close to you. I thnk her website is quirkymama.com. or you could diy, like me ;-)
Shut up! That is SO crazy! My midwife and I JUST talked about this today! Guess who she recommended?!
Yup! I have Jess' name and number on a post-it on my counter right now! Small world! My midwife said at she has never had a client regret taking placenta capsules and that it can make a world of difference.
I told DH I want to either DIY it or pay someone and he thinks I have gone nuts.
Do you know how you're doing it? DIY-ing it makes me nervous (it seems daunting), but I will try anything to avoid PPD!
