LBee Birth Services is dedicated to giving each placenta the respect and honor it so deserves by offering prints, encapsulation, tinctures and salves. I use a professional dehydrator with adjustable temperature settings (not an oven), sterilize and/or dispose of tools between each processing, and continuously further my education as a member of several national and international groups dedicated to the research of placentas.
During pregnancy the placenta accomplishes truly amazing work, but the postpartum benefits are often overlooked. Women who ingest their placenta report fewer issues with depression, anxiety, discomfort, fatigue, milk supply, recovery/healing and sleep. Some women who may not experience these common struggles immediately postpartum, often find that their placenta capsules, tinctures or salves provide relief at other times of hormonal fluctuation such as weaning or menopause.
“Your placenta is full of your own bio-specific hormones and healing properties:
Gonadotropin: the precursor to estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.
Prolactin: promotes lactation.
Oxytocin: The Love hormone. Promotes feelings of love and bonding;
produced during breastfeeding to facilitate bonding of mother and infant.
Thyroid stimulating hormone: boosts energy and helps recovery from stressful
Cortisone: combats stress and unlocks energy stores.
Interferon: stimulates the immune system to protect against infections.
Hemoglobin: replenishes iron deficiency and anemia, a common postpartum
Urokinase inhibiting factor and factor XIII: stops bleeding and enhances wound
Gammaglobulin: immune booster that helps protect against postpartum infections.
Iron: essential for oxygen absorption and transport,
Vitamin B6: aids in the making of antibodies and hemoglobin, helps cope with
Vitamin E: assists healing damaged skin, prevents oxidative damage to cells,
reduces pain from uterine cramps"
