Consuming your placenta after birth has abundant reported benefits for the newly postpartum person.

Some of its possible health benefits include:

• Lessening the risk of postpartum hemorrhage and lessening the lochia phase

• Providing the hormones, human placental lactogen and prolactin, to assist with your milk coming in sooner and maintaining a healthy supply throughout your nursing relationship

• Replenishing iron lost from birth to prevent post-birth anemia. Low iron levels can lead to depressive symptoms in a new mother

• Balancing out your hormone levels until the body is able to regulate on its own

• Providing natural pain relief from the labor and birthing process

• Helping your uterus return to pre-pregnancy size

• Lending you a consistent flow of oxytocin (the bonding and euphoric hormone)

• Replenishing your B-Vitamins and offering your body protein for energy

• Protecting from infection due to retained placenta or bacteria in the uterus
