Placenta encapsulation has a potential regulatory effect on postpartum hormones, which can affect both postpartum mood and milk supply. Supporters of the practice say that placenta pills can help prevent anemia, boost milk supply, balance hormones and even lower your chances of having postpartum depression. There is little research available to either support or oppose the tradition of placental encapsulation. There are a number of proposed benefits of the custom, and limited risks if the placenta is stored correctly and ingested only by the mother.
