The placenta is an amazing part of your pregnancy; it began as nothing and grew to protect and nourish your baby! For centuries, women across the world have reported benefits from the consumption of their placenta. Some of these reported benefits include:
- Increased milk production

Why are our placenta packages special?
Most people have a special person in their family or network of friends who always knows just how to make them feel better. For the ladies of DOK, that person is Grandma. Always knowledgeable of simple, homemade medicinal products for aches and pains, Grandmothers across many families like our own seem to have a special niche for natural cure-alls. That magic cure-all can often come in the form of salves and tinctures. Following Grandma's advice and current anecdotal evidence, Doulas of Kentuckiana recognized that these special hand-crafted products aren't just a thing of the past and include them with every placenta package!
Your personal tincture is a long- lasting liquid extract . Many women have reported their personal tincture to have a powerful, quick acting balancing effect. Its recommended use is for times of stress, extreme emotional periods and increased anxiety. In addition to your full size tincture bottle, a travel sized bottle is provided to easily keep this remedy on-hand when you are on-the-go!
(Extremely convenient for returning to work!)
This organic ointment is skillfully crafted specifically for you in your own home!
