Baltimore Placenta Encapsulation with Mobtown Doulas

You’ll work harder than ever.

Childbirth is one of life’s greatest challenges, both physically and emotionally. It is both revitalizing and depleting, regardless of how you birth.

As doulas, we are invested in the needs of the women we serve and place a great emphasis on the postpartum recovery and healing period. It is a critical time for support as you reclaim your body during the transition from pregnancy to parenting. From both personal and professional experience, we have come to value the role the placenta can play in that transition.

Everything that your baby requires before birth is produced by or travels through your placenta. It is a bountiful reserve of nutrients and hormones that connects you to your child. After you birth your baby, you can nourish your own body from the same rich supply.
