I have some capsules remaining from my previous baby, and I am now pregnant again – can I take these now?

Using the placenta during the postpartum period is primarily to help a woman’s recovery from the pregnancy, birthing and also ease her transition into motherhood. As the placenta capsules are composed of hormones, some of which help the uterus contract back to its pre-pregnant size; often resulting in a shorter post-birth bleeding period for women. Considering this potential uterine action, its therefore advised that women NOT taken placenta capsules whilst pregnant.
