I started with the capsules right after the birth of our son and experiences no postpartum depression. I had more energy even having been deprived of sleep. I noticed right away when forgot to take them. I did my research prior and what made me decide is that there are so many animals that eat their placenta post birth. There’s a reason why their natural instincts tell them to do so and that was my deciding factor. I am so glad I did it. Never experienced any depression and would do it again in a heart beat. Thank you Tatiana for the beautiful work you do for us mothers. You are a blessing.

I was very concerned about postpartum depression due to my history of depression, so I did a lot of research prior to the birth of my son on ways to prevent postpartum. My husband decided to take the first 3 months off work to stay home with us, which was obviously very helpful. I wanted to do more than just count on the support of others, so I decided that my best option was encapsulating my placenta for consumption. Dealing with Tatiana was very easy, quick, professional, and most importantly beneficial. I experienced a wonderful 10 months of maternity leave without any symptoms of postpartum depression. I also healed very quickly and easily returned to exercise 5.5 weeks after giving birth. I am extremely satisfied with my decision to work with Tatiana and encapsulate my placenta. I definitely plan to do the exact same thing with all my pregnancies. I recommend Tatiana to all expecting mothers who are concerned about postpartum.

I struggled with anemia, depression and infertility before becoming pregnant, so when I saw this opportunity to consume my placenta after birth, I thought it couldn’t hurt and would probably help. My reasoning was that the placenta stores such dense nutrients and hormones, and that after giving birth and being drained of energy, and possible at risk for postpartum depression, this could help me to keep or renew my strength and hopefully avoid mood dips. Furthermore, I just didn’t see the sense in throwing away this rich organ into the trash. My iron levels were so low that I had no choice but to give birth in a hospital. Even so, it went well, I delivered a full-term, full-weight baby vaginally with no meds. My one issue after she was born was my iron was still too low. The doctors kept me a bit longer than I hoped, but I was still released within 24 hours of the birth. They learned that, when I got home, I would be drinking a placenta smoothie and taking the dried placenta capsules and they thought that would be good for me. When I got home, I had several family members with me and they all agreed I looked quite pale and weak. I was a bit overwhelmed in general but was taking it as easy as I could. Tatiana greeted me shortly afterward with the prepared smoothie and capsules. I drank the smoothie right away (it tasted perfectly normal, like a fruit smoothie, no other tastes!) and my visitors left for dinner. When my family returned two hours later they immediately remarked that I looked much more healthy, “Now you have some colour!” I did seem to feel rejuvenated and I was definitely in a stable, happy mood. Furthermore, I produced good colostrum and milk right away, I had no problems with nursing, and my mood remained positive and calm throughout the entire postpartum experience. Sure, it could be the placebo effect, but it worked! If I have another baby, I will do it again.

When I went into labor Tatiana was there ready to pick up my placenta and quickly dropped off the pills to me the next day. I had a rough delivery and ended up in a C-section. Once I received the pills I took them immediately. I feel like ingesting my placenta made my recovery very quick. Within a couple of days I felt full of energy and so happy, so happy I would start to cry of happiness. I was able to get up and walk around (my family couldn’t believe how quick I recovered from my C-section). My milk supply came in within 2 days of postpartum and I’ve had a great supply of it too. For my second baby I will defiantly be taking my placenta again!

I never considered encapsulation with my first born and I really wish I had! It would have helped so much with the bluesyness and overwhelmed feelings I had in the first couple months after birth. I’m so happy I found Tatiana’s information for my 2nd. I received my pills 2 days after my son was born and I just finished them after 6 weeks! I loved the results I felt. They gave me the little boost of energy I needed during those sleepless nights at the beginning, they definitely helped with moodiness, and helped my milk supply! I was able to get far enough ahead to keep up with his cluster feedings and growth spurts, and give my poor nipples a bit of a break. I loved the fact that this was something that my body created, the thought of it being thrown out again seemed like such a waste of something so beneficial. Encapsulation is definitely something I would recommend to all mothers.

I am 100% satisfied with this service!! Tatiana is extremely knowledgeable, accommodating and obviously very dedicated to what she does. Within two hours after my baby’s birth, she was there to pick up the placenta and she was back at the hospital by the very next morning with the placenta encapsulated and ready to be taken. I was considered high risk for postpartum depression and I am glad to say that I never had to suffer that fate (which I believe these pills played a huge... part in preventing), my milk production was fantastic and I believe these pills are also the reason my milk contained a “high fat content” which I was told is extremely good (the proof is in my daughter who gained 4 pounds in her first two months) and most importantly, I felt like super woman after having her!! I was happy, healthy and full of energy, which is certainly not what I was expecting after just having pushed out a baby.. I would sincerely recommend this service to any and every mom-to-be, it is extremely beneficial to not just yourself, but your baby as well..

Hello Tatiana. I just wanted to say thank you very much for the lovely package you provided us. The packaging is just perfect and shows how much care you put into your product. The smoothie was delicious. I was really hesitant about the whole idea, but it was fantastic and I’m feeling very well so far. I’ll let you know how things go with the capsules. Thanks again!

Ever since I read about placenta encapsulation and the benefits, I knew it would be something for me. In the past, I suffered a short episode of depression following the death of a loved one and was worried that this might make me susceptible to postpartum depression. After researching those who offer the service in Ottawa, I selected Tatiana and was very glad I did. The night of my delivery, Tatiana arranged pickup from the hospital and had the pills to me within 2 days of the birth. Once I started taking the pills I noticed immediately my milk supply came in, it was like a switch went off in my body! Also, I noticed a surge in my energy level, which helped over the next few weeks given that I was getting so little sleep. I had very few moments of baby blues and never suffered postpartum depression, which I attribute directly to ingesting the placenta. My daughter is currently 6 months and I continue to consume the pills anytime I feel tired or emotional. I’m very glad I decided to encapsulate my placenta, it was a very positive experience and I would do it again in heartbeat.

I first heard of placenta encapsulation through a good friend who had used Tatiana’s services for her second pregnancy. I remember she lamented not having done it for her first pregnancy as she found the postpartum phase of her second pregnancy was much easier and she felt a lot better. After doing some research, I learned that most mammals consume their placenta after giving birth. As a person who has struggled for years with iron deficiency, it intuitively made sense to me to try this. Although I don’t have a previous pregnancy to compare to, I am very happy with my decision to consume my placenta. Any time I would feel baby blues, my husband would remind me to take my pills and I would soon feel more relaxed, confident and energized. I attribute consuming my placenta to contributing to a very positive and quick postpartum recovery. Tatiana makes the experience very pleasant and easy. I will definitely try this again if I have more babies!

I have two lovely boys, Finn (4 years old) and Aidan (7 months old) and I was fortunate enough to have had my placenta encapsulated for both births. I had first heard of the benefits of consuming ones’ placenta from my mom, who comes from the era where placentas were cooked up in spaghetti sauces! Now we can enjoy these unparalleled health benefits in a convenient capsule form.
The choice to encapsulate my placenta was simple: there are loads of benefits and no drawbacks. I liked my odds. The tangible benefits that I saw were staving off the baby blues, maintaining energy and balancing my hormones. These benefits were particularly welcome when I had my second child and found myself in a position where sleep and rest were becoming scarce and any support I could get to maintain my energy and hormone levels in check was brilliant.
I am grateful that there are people like Tatiana who value this traditional natural method of healing and offer such a wonderful service.

Tatiana, I wanted to give you a big thank you for helping me encapsulate my baby Marley’s placenta! He’s now 13 months, time flew by! It was such an amazing experience. I will keep the placenta print as a memory of it forever. I still have the tincture and have found it to be wonderful during transitional times.

I had great results and felt so energized and didn’t have any signs of depression! I definitely had to do it again. Every time I take a pill, I feel a surge of energy and feel really healthy and good. I totally recommend it for anyone considering it!

My family definitely noticed when I forgot to take my placenta capsules
