Not really. I had it terribly with my first three...bordering on psychosis with my second. But with my last, I had my placenta encapsulated, and the post partum experience was night and day from my other three. I will never again consider *not* consuming my placenta! 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 or you could diy, like me ;-)

wife to Michael, mama to Zoe (13), Selene (9), Garvin (7), Gwen (4), Thomas (2.5), and a bonus surprise, due 30 April 2016
