Placenta encapsulation is becoming widespread as women seek out ways to prevent and treat hormonal symptoms after birth. I decided during my 2nd pregnancy that I would try placenta pills to increase my milk supply. It was $300 for 162 capsules and a tincture that were delivered the day after my c-section. I started day 3 when my milk still hadn’t come in and I struggled to feed my infant. My milk seemed to magically show up rather fiercely the next day.
