I'm nearly 38 weeks with DD2 and I've been going back and forth on whether or not I want to and/or can afford to do placenta encapsulation again. I still have a number left over from DD1 (3.5yrs old) in the freezer and I'm wondering if those would be affective after DD2 is born or not? I obviously didn't use all of those but I did feel a benefit from them when I did... Would I be doing harm in taking those ones after this LO is born? Would they have the same affect?

There wouldn't be any harm in taking the ones from your first baby. They would have the same effect. The only thing I would wonder is if they might be less potent.

 

Do you know if your pills were encapsulated via the raw method or TCM?

 

This is from the feministbreeder's site:

RAW Method: This method delivers the highest potency of the pills because it is not cooked before it’s dried, but these pills expire after approximately one year of freezer storage.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Method: This recipe creates a pill that can be stored indefinitely with proper refrigeration, but is less potent than the raw form.

I'm actually unsure of the exact method she used but she did tell me specifically that I can save them for use later on with things such as menopause. I think I will just use up the remainder of what I have when this one comes and call it good.

Interesting. My pills are raw but I was told they would be good indefinitely in the freezer.
