We had the privilege of having Virginia prepare and encapsulate my placenta. She even went to the trouble of making some beautiful placenta prints and a dream catcher from the cord – they are the most unique and treasured keepsakes we have! The placenta pills were a godsend in those early weeks, I felt energised, my mood was fantastic and my post-partum recovery was fast: my uterus had shrunk right back down within a matter of days, and I only had minimal bleeding. Virginia kindly came to our home, picked up the placenta for encapsulation soon after birth and delivered it back to us within a couple of days – we didn’t have to do a thing, giving our new little family more uninterrupted time together…
