Mum’s nat­u­ral heal­ing

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

SHE held the pla­centa in her hands af­ter her third baby was born on the side of the road, and knew it was some­thing spe­cial.

“It was so amaz­ing. This or­gan had sup­ported my child, and I got to see it and hold it in my bare hands,” Lyt­i­cia Fresh­wa­ter said.

The Mother’s in Arms pla­centa en­cap­su­la­tion ex­pert opened her busi­ness soon af­ter, to give mums a nat­u­ral method of re­cov­ery.

Ms Fresh­wa­ter has learned the art of turn­ing a pla­centa into a pill, which de­spite no ev­i­dence, is be­lieved to have ben­e­fits in post-par­tum re­cov­ery.

“I’ve had many dif­fer­ent re­ports from mums who have tried it the sec­ond time around and no­ticed dif­fer­ences,” she said.

“They’ve found it’s helped their milk sup­ply, en­ergy lev­els, re­duced bleeding and re­duc­ing the uterus back to its orig­i­nal size.”

Once she re­trieves the pla­centa within hours from birth, she steams, de­hy­drates, grounds and places it into cap­sules.

“And from that, the mother in­gests it in the days af­ter the birth,” she said.

Ms Fresh­wa­ter said most women turn to it as a nat­u­ral al­ter­na­tive to pre­scrip­tion medication, as they hadn’t been able to achieve what they wanted in re­cov­ery.

“They know it’s 100 per cent their pla­centa, it’s come from their body and sup­ported their baby for nine months,” she said.

“Mums for­get about them­selves. It’s im­por­tant to get clothes and toys but once the baby is here they re­alise ‘wait what about me’?”

Mother’s in Arms is mov­ing to Caloun­dra in Novem­ber and is tak­ing book­ings for 2019/20.

“I’m hop­ing to ed­u­cate new moth­ers that post-par­tum plan­ning is just as im­por­tant to have a smooth and en­joy­able jour­ney into moth­er­hood,” she said.

“I com­pletely cher­ish this or­gan and I try to teach my mums how amaz­ing it is too.”
