Episode 31: "Is your placenta in your birth plan?" with Tamara Morales of Placentamom.com

Today I chat with Tamara Morales of Placentamom.com. Tamara is a mom of 2 "middles" and a placenta encapsulator in the Sacramento area.  She started her placenta business 7 years ago and is also the one who encapsulated my placenta with my daughter's birth. I so enjoyed chatting with her about her postpartum experiences and about the benefits of placenta encapsulation. 

In her episode, we talk about:

  • Postpartum Depression and how placenta capsules can help
  • How postpartum depression manifested for her with her first, and how much better it was with her second baby and the lifestyle changes her family made when prepping for the second baby
  • H.A.L.T. - the idea that you shouldn't ever let yourself get too Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired
  • The importance of asking moms if you can do something specific to help after the baby is born rather than asking a blanket question about what they need
  • Importance of embracing all of the moments, even the bad ones and sharing with other moms that it IS hard in these early days. 

Tamara also generously offered to help anyone looking for a placenta encapsulator in other parts of the country to contact her and she will help find you one!
