Placenta Encapsulation in the Fraser Valley

by Amanda

Would you do it? Eat your placenta after giving birth?

This practice of encapsulating your placenta after birth is becoming very mainstream and we LOVE that so many of our clients come back to us with incredible stories about feeling refreshed, energized, higher milk supply and an overall balanced feeling!

We offer Placenta Encapsulation in Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Langley and Mission with pick-up/drop off included. Your placenta is processed in our private dedicated kitchen (not in our homes) and we ensure the best care and highest standards for each of our clients.

What are the benefits to placenta encapsulation?

Many postpartum conditions, particularly depression, are thought to be caused by the precipitous drop in estrogens (estradiol and estriol) and progestogens (pro-gesterone and its neuroactive metabolite, allopregnanolone) that occur at birth. Placentophagy advocates claim that hormones retained in the placenta, such as estrogens and progesterone, likely provide a key source of the beneficial postpartum effects attributed to placentophagy, such as the relief of depressive symptoms and improved milk production. This has shown to be true throughout our years of practice in the Fraser Valley.

If you are looking for encapsulation, book in this month (September) for a free tincture! A $40 value.

Exciting Surrogacy News!

by Amanda

 

Exciting News!!

Hopefully you have been following along on Kara’s (YBB Part Owner/Manager) surrogacy journey on our Facebook/Instagram over the last few weeks.  After months of preparing with hormone injections, medications, blood work and ultrasounds it was finally time for the embryo transfer to happen! Amanda & Kara traveled down to Las Vegas to one of the best fertility clinics for the week.

We began with a very early morning of more blood work and then the actual transfer happening at noon! We posted a few videos of the procedure on our Facebook Page so everyone would understand all that goes into this process.  Honestly, it was quite quick AND the clinic Skyped in the Intended Father so he could be there to watch his little embryo start it’s journey.  It was a beautiful moment and we could actually see a flash on the ultrasound screen as the doctor made the transfer take place.  Truly magical!

A tradition following an embryo transfer for surrogates is to grab an order of McDonald’s fries on the way home! It’s said that it helps the embryo stick.  Who knows though?  Except….

IT WORKED!!  After spending 48 hours on bedrest following the procedure, we flew home and waiting for the day to find out the news.

More blood tests occurred and the news came in, Kara is officially pregnant with her first surrogate baby!!!!!! We are beyond excited for the family and that we are encouraged to share her story along the way with all of you who may be going through surrogacy or IVF journeys of your own.

Check out our Facebook Page for a video from Kara coming soon!
