With over five years experience offering placenta encapsulation services I can safely say that 95% of the time when people, men and women alike, first hear of placenta encapsulation, their reaction is something along the lines of "eww, gross!" But quickly, most people come around when they hear of the benefits and especially when they hear testimonials from people who've actually tried this holistic approach to postpartum health.
Sometimes I hear from parents-to-be who want to try encapsulation but their partner is not on board. So I reached out to my client network and asked for thoughts from partners on their experience. I asked them "How did you feel about your partner trying placenta encapsulation when you first heard about it, and then how did the experience actually go?" and "What would you say to partners/family members who are skeptical, think it's gross, or not worth the money?"
Enjoy their responses below!
How did you feel about your partner trying placenta encapsulation when you first heard about it, and then how did the experience actually go?
"When I heard about placenta encapsulation I was a little taken aback by the thought of consuming your placenta but after reading about placenta encapsulation and the benefits one receives from doing this are rather alarmingly positive. I knew she had done her research and I supported her if this was something she thought would help her postpartum. I thought the experience was great and was happy to see my wife benefiting from the placenta pills she was taking."
