I was doing some research last night and came across a PP remedy while looking for something else. Have you ever heard of the Bach Flower Remedies? They are a flower essence and you take 2 drops at a time 4x a day. They have them to work on all kinds of issues and are wonderful. I am currently using some on Ben for separation anxiety issues (I cant go pee alone without him crying) and we're having great success. I have personally used them too and love them. My book recommended these:
For baby blues:
for no apparent reason: MUSTARD
with irrational fears/behavior: CHERRY PLUM
These remedies can be purchased in 20ml bottles from Whole Foods or a lot of other natural stores. Just ask for the Bach Flower Remedies.
Hope this helps! If you have any questions just send me a pm if ya want!
I'm going to have my midwives assistants encapsulate the placenta this time. My doula recommended doing something with it with Cadie, but I was too lame. This time I'm not taking any chances, that first month was rough on me. I have a history of bad depression, and even on meds I was a mess. I imagine you don 't still have your placenta though, at this point.
The bachs remedies are wonderful, great recommendation. Try 4,000 or more units of D3 as well.
Ladies who have encapsulated their placentas- Did you do it yourself, or pay someone else to do it? Was it hard? Gross? I'm considering it, but I don't have DH fully on board yet
I encapsulated my own, and I actually offer the service to other women. I don't find it gross or hard, it's pretty easy and straight forward. It took a few hours to dry it, I like to use the oven on the lowest setting with the door open (but many use a dehyderator instead). Then I grind it up and put it in an encapsulating machine, which takes about 30 minutes for me. I got 105 capsules out of my placenta.
