What My Clients Say

Julia helped me get set up with the placenta encapsulation process and she was able to answer all my questions and educate me on what I needed to do and how the process worked. It was super easy to get my placenta to her once it was delivered. I got my encapsulations within 48hrs and boy let me tell you they are little miracle encapsulations. This was my first baby and by two days postpartum I felt like death and shortly after taking them I started to feel a tiny bit better and after 24 hrs I started to feel normal. I'm not even a week into postpartum and my recovery has been so easy. My milk has come in like a flood, my mood is like it was before I got pregnant, even though I don't sleep a lot with a newborn I actually have some energy. Well I guess you can say these are the answers to the best postpartum you can have. I recommend these to any mom. I don't think there are enough positive words to describe the process. Thank you so much for helping me with this process, because this has made postpartum so much better than I ever thought it could be. I'm so thankful for you and your services.

I am so in love with the medicine our bodies provide us to recover from birth, the placenta. And I am so in love with Julia who lovingly cooked, dehydrated, and encapsulated by hand the organ that nourished my son while he was wiggling in my womb. She was loving, attentive, and respectful when she delivered the pills on day 2 or 3 (it's hazy) to my home. The pills, themselves, were a wonder drug - this is definitely a service EVERY woman should do, especially because it's safe and badass! I was quite blissed out by my empowering homebirth experience and falling madly in love with my son, and the support provided by my placenta prolonged that bliss for the 2 weeks that I took them - I went for the super dose of 3 pills 3x a day and it really helped my pull through the most intense part of my healing phase with a glowing smile on my face. 
The amazingness doesn't stop there - Julia made beautiful prints with food-safe dyes so I can remember the shape and reality of my beautiful placenta. I'm excited to try out my placenta tincture that Julia also made once I hit six weeks. There were a few days when I didn't take as many placenta pills in the beginning and I felt noticeably lower energy and mood. I felt like a junkie shaking the last few pills in the bottom of my jar because I knew they made me feel so good and supported. Luckily I have an herbal tonic I had lined up to take the place of postpartum support. So get your placenta encapsulated when you have a baby!!

I've loved the pills! I've felt wonderful, both emotionally and physically. I shed all of my baby weight in 6 weeks - without trying. That's totally not my body type at all!

This spray is so lovely to use and effective! I used this spray starting in my third trimester once daily. Thinking about it now, I have faith using it really helped my recovery from the two minor tears I got from birth - they were recovering "completely and beautifully" (said my midwife) without stitches by the fourth day after birth. I waited the first week after birth to use the spray because I was really sensitive to stinging feelings but I loved using it since then. I'll be honest, and share that I developed a rectal fissure from constipation and that was NOT fun (and kinda scary) BUT was resolved quickly once I had the notion to use my spray down there! This is an all-around wonderful product that I feel good spraying on my yoni because it's clean ingredients and therapeutic grade essential oils.
