Can placenta capsules decrease your milk supply?

There is a misconception that the placenta hormones in the capsules can mimic a situation of ‘retained placenta’, affecting the breastmilk coming in and/or the overall supply. However, a placenta that is dehydrated and encapsulated to be ingested orally, is a completely different scenario.

The majority of women notice a positive impact on their milk supply, whilst the minority notice no distinct change (compared to a previous experience). I have never had any reports of placenta capsules negatively affecting milk supply in over 8 years.
