Iron deficiency is very common in females, especially those who have borne children. Lack of iron can affect lactation, fertility and ability to be an effective mother. 


During and after labour a new mother will lose between 1/8 - 1/10 of her body's blood supply. With caesarian section and instrumental/episiotomy births, blood loss can be significantly more. Losing a large amount of iron so quickly can cause anaemia, leaving a new mum feeling tired, faint and exhausted. The blood needs high supplies of iron to carry oxygen to the cells. Low supplies of oxygen leaves your cells starving and less able to heal after trauma.


The placenta benefits the new mother by supplying incredible amounts of iron, amino acids and essential fats which we believe is the perfect replenishment following the marathon birth can be. Stem cells and growth factors in the placenta play a key role in healing the wound left inside the uterus after birth by the separation of the placenta from the uterine wall. A mother will typically bleed for between 3-6 weeks after birth from this wound. We have found that mothers who consume their placenta after birth bleed significantly less e.g. usually much lighter bleeding for just 7 - 10 days.
