We are introducing a new product line!

Baby Bump Keepsakes!

We create statues of pregnant moms. These are statues made out of your own body/belly using 3D printing technology. I am refining my techniques and need about 5 more pregnant moms to practice with. It only takes a few minutes to do and is as safe as getting your picture made. I have an office space in north Austin off of Mopac.

If you are pregnant and are interested in helping me out and can come see me on the evening May 17th or Saturday May 18th please let me know!

I have attached some pictures of the types of statues we are creating.

You can PM me or text me at 512-517-9017.

Another very interesting placenta ritual across different cultures!

Borneo Sea Gypsies ~ After the mother has given birth a traditional midwife will carry the placenta and umbilical cord to the shore, and will perform a burial ritual on the island.

The bajau believe that throwing the placenta to the sea will bring misfortune and bad luck.

The sea is a sacred place for the Bajau and according to their belief if they will throw it in sea the fish will eat it and this will brings bad luck.

Placentas across cultures! Here is some information from the beautiful country of Peru!

Legend has it that Inca Yupanqui built a palace to house a gold statue of his mother Mama Rawa Occlo.
Inside it he placed the placenta from his own birth.
The Incas of Peru would dry out the umbilical cord and give it to the child to chew on later on while teething.

Continuing our series on placenta rituals across the world!

Let’s learn about Uganda!

The Baganda of Uganda believe that the placenta is actually a second child.

Not only is it the child’s double, but the placenta also has its own spirit that resides in the umbilical cord.

The portion of the cord attached to the baby must be carefully preserved to ensure the good health of the child.

Let’s explore placenta rituals in other countries!

First up Cambodia!

Cambodian people believe that burying the placenta is key to ensuring the health of the baby and its mother in the future.

🌿It is wrapped in banana leaves and kept near the baby for three days before a burial ceremony.

It’s time for my yearly public announcement because hospitals and providers still don’t seem to understand this:

Meconium is NEVER a contraindication for encapsulation. The placenta is washed and sterilized BEFORE it is encapsulated. Thank you!

Delayed cord clamping is so important!

Delayed cord clamping is so important!

Worldwide, 13 million infants are born preterm, and almost 1 million die within 1 month. But leaving the umbilical cord intact for at least 2 minutes after birth might reduce the mortality risk of premature infants by as much as 69% compared with immediate cord clamping, according to results from a....

Interesting information and research on consuming the placenta!

In the last trimester, the placenta begins to secrete a corticotropin-releasing hormone, or CRH, which enables the mother to mentally and physically handle extreme amounts of stress; by the time of birth, most mothers have up to three times their pre-pregnancy levels of CRH[1] (or what we like to call the super-hero hormone).

The ability to multi-task, overcome problems, and discover new solutions when obstacles arise are all skills directly affected by CRH hormones.

When the placenta is born, the feedback system that regulated the hormone’s production is interrupted, and the mother is left with only the CRH production of the hypothalamus. Because of this, postpartum mothers have low levels of this stress-fighting hormone making them more vulnerable to depression and less able to perform well under stress.

Studies from the National Institute of Health have found that consuming the placenta stimulates and stabilizes CRH levels. Endocrinologist George Chrousos, who led the NIH study, concluded that since the placenta contains large amounts of orally-active CRH, ingesting the placenta will stabilize CRH levels resulting in “a more stable emotional life for the mother.”[2]

Ingesting your placenta provides more than just helping your hormones following birth. Read below to learn more about the ingredients of a placenta!

What are the amazing substances that exist in the placenta in an orally-active form?

Prostaglandins are important mediators of uterine activity. The medical literature makes a much stronger case for the role of prostaglandins in labor than for oxytocin as a uterine stimulant. Now with immediate consumption of raw placenta at birth, mothers can safely increase their levels of prostaglandin just after birth in a manner that modern medicine has not yet been able to reproduce. Along with reducing the bleeding from the placental attachment site, prostaglandin levels affect the aggregation/disaggregation of platelets, regulates inflammation, and assists cell growth and regeneration! These compound benefits add up to a significant acceleration of postpartum healing from birth injuries and strain.

There are also Minerals, trace elements, and vitamins, iron and selenium, the hormones oxytocin, prostaglandin, prolactin and human placental lactagon (hpl), progesterone, serotonin, corticotropin-releasing hormone, and thyroid-releasing hormone (trh), thyroxine, plus vitamin b6, stem cells and growth factors, indoleamines, and lastly, opioids/ placental opioid-enhancing factor (poef).

If you are GBS positive it is SAFE to encapsulate! Please do not let an OB tell you that it is not. They do not understand our safety protocols. If they tell you babies have died because their mom encapsulated her placenta they ARE lying to you! Ask them to provide proof, show you the actual study where a baby died...they can't. It does not exist.

If you have concerns about GBS please call me! Have your doctor call me. I would be happy to explain why it is safe. Safety has been scientifically proven!
