The Postpartum period is hard. Period.

Every woman is at risk of Postpartum Depression.

Postpartum fatigue effects up to 70% of women and:

  • Contributes to poor health, irritability and inability to concentrate
  • Is linked to iron deficiency, anemia, inflammation and thyroid dysfunction

Iron deficiency effects more than 50% of women of reproductive age and has a negative impact on:

  • Mother baby interactions
  • Your ability to handle stress
  • Energy levels, fitness ability, endurance capacity and cognition
  • Baby’s brain and behavioral function long after the period of iron deficiency. Baby’s brain function is fundamentally altered

Significant risk factors in developing Postpartum Depression are:

  • Fatigue
  • Anemia
  • Iron deficiency
  • Birth interventions
  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • High body mass index
  • Low levels of hormones
  • Personal or family history of depression

After birth, due to the sharp drop in:

  • Iron,
  • Blood,
  • Nutrients and
  • Hormones

It’s totally normal to feel:

  • Pain,
  • Sadness,
  • Stress,
  • Fatigue,
  • Depressed,
  • Sleep deprived,
  • Unbalanced, unsure and
  • Nervous about breastfeeding

Placenta benefits can be the solution!

Why does it work?

  • The placenta is full of bioavailable Iron, nutrients and hormones.
  • Iron is necessary for energy and brain function.

Research shows that Iron Therapy significantly improves:

  • Fatigue levels, stress, and symptoms of depression.
  • Fitness levels, oxygen intake, and respiratory function.
  • Mood, apathy, ability to concentrate and work efficiency.

Nutrients that replenish bodily stores for a healthy functioning of mother and baby are:

  • Calcium, Copper, Fiber, Magnesium, Manganese, Phosphorus, Potassium, Protein, Vitamin B6 and Zinc.

Hormones in the placenta can help you feel balanced and emotionally well.

Research shows that:

  • Prolactin - supports lactation
  • Prostaglandins – reduce postnatal bleeding and promote healing
  • Thyroid-stimulating hormone – stimulates the metabolism of almost every tissue in the body
  • Placental opioid-enhancing factor – relieves pain and promotes maternal caretaking behaviors
  • Estrogen, Progesterone and Corticotropin-releasing hormones – significantly reduce symptoms of depression
  • Oxytocin – is the love releasing hormone, relieves pain and supports breastfeeding and mother-baby bonding

All of these are found in the Placenta for great benefits!

Placental Opiod-Enhancing Factor

  • Supplies high levels of pain relief by stimulating your body's own opioids and endorphins.
  • Accelerates your maternal attentiveness.

Prolactin

  • Necessary for milk production.
  • Triggers your maternal responses including feeding & keeping your baby safe.

Prostaglandins

  • Reduce postnatal bleeding and inflammation.

Endogenous Opioids

  • Help facilitate the rapid onset of maternal care taking behaviors.

Estrogen & Progesterone

  • Balance brain chemistry.
  • Build collagen.

Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone

  • Stimulates the metabolism of almost every cell in the body!
  • Promotes recovery from stress on your body.
  • Boosts energy.

Cortisone

  • Increase energy.
  • Reduces stress.

Corticotropin-releasing Hormone, Vitamin B6 & Zinc

  • Significantly reduce depression.

Iron

  • Improves infant development.
  • Improves cognition & focus.
  • Improves energy & fitness.
  • Improves mood, emotions & depression.

Oxytocin

  • Serious pain relieving & euphoric qualities.
