Benefits & Risks

Your placenta is a beautifully intelligent organ, genetically identical to you.

It nurtures your baby during your pregnancy, supplying oxygen, nutrients and food to them whilst enabling functions their body is not yet mature enough to perform independently.
Your placenta produces hormones necessary to sustain a blossoming pregnancy and promote healthy foetal development, whilst acting as a protective filter keeping out many types of bacteria and keeping your baby well.


Once birthed from your body, your placenta still holds amazing benefits to aid your postpartum recovery and beyond.
