Why do people choose to encapsulate their placenta?

While there isn’t much evidence based research or studies regarding placenta encapsulation there have been many reported benefits to encapsulating placentas.

Among these possible benefits are:

  • Increase in CRH, a stress-reducing hormone

  • Increase in energy levels

  • Increased release of the hormone oxytocin (this helps the uterus return to normal size and encourages bonding with your newborn)
