Kim Kardashian Encapsulated Her Placenta

I'm sure you have heard the news that Kim Kardashian ate her placenta! That sounds a bit barbaric, she had her placenta encapsulated, which is just like taking your prenatal vitamin. What are the benefits of this and why would someone consume something that was inside them? For many reasons, Kim specifically wanted to combat Postpartum Depression which more than 15% of mothers suffer from after giving birth to their baby. However, there are many other reasons to add placenta encapsulation to your postpartum plan than just combating postpartum depression.

What are the anecdotal benefits?

  • Increased Milk Supply
  • Hormonal Balance
  • Decreased Postpartum Bleeding
  • Increased Energy Levels
  • Reduction in Mood Swings
  • Reduction in Feeling Stressed
  • Reduction in Baby Blues
  • Reduction in Severity of Postpartum Depression

There are many emotions, changes, challenges and joys after a new baby arrives. It may be hard for some moms to talk about or admit that they experienced sadness, but it is not uncommon. Placenta encapsulation is an easy addition that will help your postpartum transition be smooth and more predictable. Kim encapsulated and we think you would love it too.

Kim said, "I really didn't want the baby blues and thought I can't go wrong with taking a pill made of my own hormones-made by me, for me." She is exactly right, your placenta is made by you and is perfect for you.
