Placenta for Encapsulation Do’s and Dont’s

Posted on
Birthingcenter of ny placenta encapsulation

After having your baby, you want to use the placenta for encapsulation. Placental encapsulation is the practice of eating the placenta after it has been steamed, dehydrated, ground and placed into pills.  Prior to delivery of your baby the   amniotic  fluid is noted to be meconium stained.  Can you still do encapsulation?  What is the correct answer?  Do you know? 

  • No,  because the placenta is contaminated and should be sent to pathology.
  • If your baby passes meconium prior to birth, it is recommended to do basic heated encapsulation as well as rinsing the placenta in an apple vinegar bath prior to steaming it.
  • No specific care of the placenta before doing encapsulated procedure is needed .
  • Take antibiotics one week prior to using encapsulated pills.

Editor’s note: There is little research available to either support or oppose the tradition of placental encapsulation. There are a number of proposed benefits of the custom, and limited risks if the placenta is stored correctly and ingested only by the mother.  If you feel that placenta encapsulation is right for you, be sure to contact your healthcare provider to receive more information on the proper procedure for it. It is also important to be aware of any laws in your state that make it illegal to remove the placenta from the hospital.

Should baby be placed on stomach or chest after birth? Nurse Jackies Tips for 6/1/20

Posted on
baby on stomach or chest after delivery

You are finally having your bundle of joy! You have read and your delivery assistant has told you – that when the baby is born it should immediately be placed on your chest for bonding, but your provider places the baby on your stomach and not your chest – Do you know why? Which 2 are the correct answers?

  1. Your provider does not agree with bonding on the chest.
  1. Easier for the provider if the baby is in the abdomen as oppose to  the chest.

3.  Your baby may have a short cord and the cord should not be pulled on otherwise it can pull off and become an emergency

4. Your provider might be focused on something happening vaginally or bleeding from the uterus and needs to pay attention to that – so it was easier to place the baby on the abdomen first.

Correct answer- 3,4

Taking Iron During Pregnancy Nurse Jackies 5-2-20 weekly tip

Posted on
taking iron during pregnancy

You’re having a baby. Your Obstetrician starts you on iron medication daily for your anemia. What is the recommendation for taking this medication by mouth. Which answer is correct?

  • 1-iron medication needs food to activate it so take it with a meal
  • 2-Iron medication should be taken with milk
  • 3-Iron medication should not be taken with food
  • 4-Iron medication should be taken before you go to bed.

Answer 3 – Iron medications should not be taken with food. The reason you should take iron on an empty stomach without food is that an acidic stomach helps with iron absorption.(unless your physician says otherwise).

You are having complications while in labor at a Birthing Center or home birth – what do you do?

Posted on
labor complications
labor complications

Complications during labor are not uncommon. However, your decision to have a natural childbirth outside of a hospital can present a few challenges. Do you know what to do?

  • Transfer to a nearby hospital for care?
  • Do NOT transfer because you want a non-hospital birth?

When complications arise, the place of delivery is not relevant if it impedes the health of you and your baby. No birthing center or home birth can guarantee, nor should you trust if they do, that if you have complications during labor your will not need a hospital for medical intervention. A healthy baby and mother are the ultimate goal.
