Placenta pills!!
August 18, 2013 at 7:43 PM
YAY just finished having my pills made by one of our sweet mommas here (lundaylove). I got 175 of them! How many of you have placenta pills? How do you take them? How often, how many etc?

    I got mine from the placenta girl here on Monday. I got about 250! I was surprised. I got about 136 from my last baby. Ruht now I'm taking 2 two times a day and will up it to three times a day in a couple of days. I have noticed my energy is better but I mainly have noticed that my moods are better with DH being gone and my birth going like it did I was REALLY weepy which is pretty out of character. The placenta pills have really been helping even me out.

    I had them made from my first birth. We got over 300, which--for the midwife who did them--was a record.

    I have over half of them left, 2 years and a second baby later. (Never did do a second batch with the new baby because I have so many).  I just take them once in awhile now, sometimes if I feel like babe is going through a growth spurt and nursing endlessly...  I don't have proof, but I feel they help with my supply.

    I got about 160 pills. I was taking 2-3 pills 2-3x a day for the first week and tapered off from there.
