A Mother's Touch
A Mothers Touch offers a range of childbirth services for both public and private hospitals in Hong Kong and China. Doula Services: A Doula is a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth; or who provides emotional and practical support during the postpartum period. Studies have shown that when doulas attend birth, labours are shorter with fewer complications, babies are healthier and they breastfeed more easily. Placenta Encapsulation Studies have proven that the symptoms of post-natal depression are linked with a severe lack of essential nutrients such as iron, vitamin B6 and hormones including CRH (our stress reducer hormone), all of which are in high supply in the placenta. Consuming the placenta after birth nourishes the mother of lost nutrients and hormones and may entirely prevent the “baby blues” and post-natal depression. Dried placenta powder has also been scientifically proven to increase milk supply, and other benefits include a reduction in post-birth bleeding and stress levels, and an increase in energy. Capsules are taken for the first 6 weeks after giving birth, and some can be saved for hormonal imbalances like when weaning baby off the breast, and others can be frozen and kept for menopause.
