BirthBalm Placenta Encapsulation, St Albans, Hertfordshire

Your placenta is unique to you. Consumed postnatally it can provide new mums with a rich source of nutrients and hormonal balance.

Benefits of Placenta Pills

Reported by new mums that have had their placenta encapsulated:

• Increased energy levels, feel less tired
• Boosted iron levels
• Emotionally more stable
• Mood more balanced, less ups and downs
• Reduced likelihood of the “baby blues” and postnatal depression
• Increase in breast milk supply for breast feeding
• Reduced postnatal bleeding
• improve the appearance of skin/hair/nails

Faster recovery after the birth- natural birth and C-sections


“Placenta pills will always be the first thing I recommend to my pregnant friends. Nothing else I have tried compares to the benefits I gained from taking them. Thank you Louise!”
