We hired Mel to encapsulate my placenta, and I can say that after nearly 3 weeks of taking the pills, my recovery this time has been a night and day difference! With our first, I cried daily when the sun set for the first few weeks and thought it was a myth that some people don’t experience the baby blues. This time I have felt like my normal self!
