My name is Morgan Jones. My interest in placenta encapsulation started after the birth of my second child. I experienced postpartum depression after each of my first three births. On baby #3, I processed his placenta, but still could not get over the ick factor and never did try the capsules I had made. Between baby #3 and 4 I started researching placenta encapsulation further and learned more about the science behind encapsulation and the female endocrine system during pregnancy and the postpartum time period. I was determined with my fourth birth I would get over the ick factor of placenta encapsulation and rely on the science behind it and give it a try. I had the most amazing recovery with my fourth birth. I had energy. I felt wonderful. I did not experience the anger, mental confusion and fatigue that plagued me with the other births. I felt stable and the most “me” I had ever felt in my life! I became sold that placenta encapsulation is an amazing postpartum healing tool and desired to help others in their postpartum recovery too. My first placenta I completed for another person was for a friend and it quickly took off from there. I have been encapsulating placentas professionally since May 2012. I have done lots of research on encapsulation and feel confident in my understanding of how placenta encapsulation works. I am also plugged into a network of other placenta encapsulators who I am able to bounce ideas off of. I am a former La Leche League leader. I am also OSHA Blood-Born Pathogen certified.
