*Placenta capsules, tinctures, and other preparations are a nutritional supplement and there are no guarantees that they will prevent PPD or absolutely ensure healthy milk supply. Placenta remedies are excellent for healing post-birth, but cannot be used to reverse present or predisposed issues. Placenta capsules and remedies do not take the place of medical care. Please seek additional medical care for severe anemia, inadequate milk supply, postpartum depression, or anxiety.
