Placenta EncapsulationHappy-Bellies-PE-Logo-Image

Placenta capsules can help you have a smoother transition in those first few weeks of motherhood. They replenish your iron, B12, protein, and of course hormones which is really what most new mom’s want. They can boost milk supply, iron levels, energy levels, and get rid of baby blues. Some call them “chill pills!” They are as easy to take as a prenatal vitamin with no ick or smell. I love this work that I do and now offer capsules in plain or grape flavor. Happy Mom…Happy Baby!!
