What our Clients are saying:

The love they brought to my son's birth was a feeling I'll never forget..."
​-Jessica R.

​"We chose to have our baby under the guiding care of a midwife and doula. Initially, we thought that since we were working with a midwife, we wouldn't need a doula, but now, if someone told me I could only choose to have a midwife *or* a doula at my birth, I would choose my doula, Danielle. She was a constant support through my pregnancy and my labor, and my husband was so grateful for Danielle's support and guidance, as well. I honestly can't even imagine my birth without her - she was completely hands-on during my labor helping me with the physical task of bringing baby into the world, but she also respected my ability to listen to my body's own cues. She let me lead my process and stepped in with suggestions and reminders when necessary.." 
​-Alanna R.

"I have been blessed to have 3 beautiful gentle hospital births without pain medication, all with doulas. Of those three birth experiences, Kindred Hearts was by far my best doula experience. The difference comes down to the amazing wealth of experience and expertise these three incredible doulas share and the support and companionship I gained each month from Birth Circle was exceptional.

Heartland Doulas' Placenta Encapsulation Specialist (PES) is trained by an internationally known organization www.placentabenefits.info (PBI) who trains, supports, and supplies their specialists in a way that promotes uniformity, consistency, professionalism and above all, Safety. PBI specialists are trained in the Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) method of preparation which steams the placenta to a minimum internal temperature of 160F degrees, the temperature necessary to kill bacteria, before dehydrating.  

Why Encapsulate?
Mothers who consume placenta capsules have reported reduced incidence and severity of Postpartum Depression(PPD), increased and fattier milk supply, reduced fatigue, higher energy, more rapid recovery, reduced bleeding time and generally improved sense of well-being.

 

Ingredients known to be present in the placenta and their healing properties:

  • Gonadotropin: the precursor to  estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. 

  • Prolactin: promotes lactation. 

  • Oxytocin: for pain and bonding; produced during breastfeeding to facilitate bonding of mother and infant. In pharmaceutical form this   is a very addictive drug because it promotes a feeling of connectiveness with others.

  • Thyroid stimulating hormone: boosts energy and helps recovery from stressful events. 

  • Cortisone: combats stress and unlocks energy stores. 

  • Interferon: stimulates the immune system to protect against infections.

  • Prostaglandins: anti-inflammatory.

  • Hemoglobin: replenishes iron deficiency and anemia, a common postpartum condition. 

  • Urokinase inhibiting factor and factor XIII: stops bleeding and enhances wound healing. 

  • Gammaglobulin: immune booster that helps protect against postpartum infections.
