“For me personally the increase in milk and the ease of feeding has been the greatest benefit. The raw placenta smoothie was noticably helpful – the bleeding went from heavy to light in 5-10 hours. My mood and energy levels were also much higher than I expected. And it didn’t taste of anything other than berries which was a complete surprise – in fact it was quite delicious!” Kate, mum of two in London
