Placenta Encapsulation

Happy 3rd Birthday, Tulsa Family Doulas!

Happy 3rd Birthday, Tulsa Family Doulas!

Where do I start? How do I even say everything I want to say? This year has been amazing, to say the least. We topped well over 1,000 in-home postpartum hours and are still going, more birth clients than ever, so many lactation clients that are still going strong breastfeeding after their consults, happy placenta clients, belly bindings and so many classes. My goals for the agency were met this year and I couldn't have done it without the amazing women in the agency and all of our beautiful clients!

We are pleased to see the babies of our clients grow, and the confidence in their mamas blossom. Every client we serve reminds us of and reinforces our mission:

"To increase confidence in birth and in parenting for every client we serve."

So to celebrate, we want to lavish some gifts on YOU! Our business BOOMED this year because of referrals from our clients and care providers. So, it would only make sense to let those that refer receive some love.

Each of the following specials runs now through December 15, 2017. So figure out how many you can sign up for and best wishes on your beautiful gifts!

Fall Placenta Encapsulation Sale

Fall Placenta Encapsulation Sale

Placenta encapsulation in Tulsa is growing by leaps and bounds! It is so exciting to be on the service side of working with new moms and babies and seeing first-hand what is working for our clients and then hearing from them a couple weeks later ecstatic about their choice to encapsulate.

So much education is out there about the reported benefits of encapsulating your placenta, and even (for the strong stomached) a blog about our process of encapsulation.

Now we know there aren't any significant studies that detail why encapsulation works for some women. We know consuming one's placenta and the resulting experiences could be a complete placebo affect, and we are very open to sharing that.

The Tulsa Family Doulas Difference

The Tulsa Family Doulas Difference

The growth in the popularity and presence of doulas in Tulsa has been astounding lately. More people are realizing the positive benefits for continuous, compassionate care before pregnancy, during birth and after delivery. Serious studies show the benefit to having doula support, and many women find the increased satisfaction of having that continuous, unbiased support well worth the investment. 

The process of finding a doula may seem like it would be quite daunting, but it really doesn't have to be. Tulsa Family Doulas eases the process by taking care of a couple of really important steps for you ahead of time. 

Modern Placenta Use Because of Traditional Chinese Medicine

Modern Placenta Use Because of Traditional Chinese Medicine

There are many traditional methods of utilizing the placenta and honoring it for the life that it was able to provide. The placenta was often historically viewed as a magical healing organ that was best utilized immediately upon delivery from the womb. It was viewed as a skin healing agent, as part of medicinal ointments and naturopathic remedies.

Hospitals and medical institutions view the organ as human waste and have come across much controversy in some communities for blatantly disrespecting the sacredness of the organ. Culturally, the placenta was viewed as part of the newborn, the source of life and even so far as a comfort or bed for the baby while in utero.

Tulsa Placenta Encapsulation: It's not just for celebrities any more!

Tulsa Placenta Encapsulation: It's not just for celebrities any more!

Tulsa Placenta Encapsulation is a growing trend! In February of 2014, Tulsa's Channel 8 aired a story about mothers in Tulsa choosing Placenta Encapsulation. What this means is that women are saving their placentas after the delivery of their baby to be processed and encapsulated into pills they can consume as a way to help recover after childbirth. Although the practices is ages old, it's growing in popularity among celebrities like Mad Men's January Jones and Kim Kardashian, and many women right here in Tulsa!
