smoothie fruits Top tips from Doula Fairy – Placenta Specialist:

  • Chill your placenta as soon as possible after birth. As a food processor, I need to make sure that your placenta is under 8 degrees Celsius within 4 hours of the time of it’s birth
  • Make your smoothie as soon as possible. I have to make a placenta smoothie within 24 hours of birth to ensure that it is safe to consume. If you cannot make the smoothie straight away, remove a small piece from the placenta and store in a ziplock bag in the freezer until you are ready.
  • Blend for a minute more than you think is necessary.
  • Drink your smoothie as soon as you can, if you can’t drink it in one go, keep it in the fridge so that it is stored under 8 degrees Celsius. I advise clients to drink the whole smoothie within 24 hours of birth.
  • Add more water/juice if it is too thick, the banana will thicken over time, give it a good shake and add fluids to loosen it up.

Reported benefits of consuming raw placenta:

  • Reduction in blood loss
  • Reduction in time for breast milk to “come-in”
  • Increase in energy and strength
  • Provides you with an immediate, bio-available, hit of healing hormones
  • An immediate supply of bio-available vitamins and minerals
  • Helps to halt post partum haemorrhage due to blood clotting properties (Midwifery Today)

It is recommended that you do not use your placenta for a raw smoothie if there is meconium or if there are signs of infection during your birth.
