"Penny was informative and supportive throughout the entire placenta encapsulating process. This is my third baby and after two rough newborn phases with my previous babies I was willing to try anything to help those first few months, especially after becoming seriously poorly throughout my pregnancy. 

Penny collected our placenta within hours straight from the hospital and set to work straight away. Penny is so passionate about producing the perfect capsules she treated our placenta with love, care and respect from the very beginning. My husband was lucky enough to witness Penny doing her thing and would come back to hospital with a smile on his face unable to hide how impressed he was with her professionalism. She would talk him through what she was doing at each stage and he couldn’t believe the lengths she had gone too to create a sterile environment and her happiness to be creating something so amazing for us was contagious. At the beginning I had a husband who screwed his face up at the thought of the process, by the end he was telling all our friends and family how amazing Penny was and what immense care she had taken to produce our pills perfectly. Penny did not want to waste even the smallest bit of placenta and took such pride in every step. 

I have been taking the pills as instructed, and even though we had a nasty section with various infections to follow I couldn’t believe how quickly and well I recovered, I’ve never known anyone, let alone myself to have as much energy as I have done over the past few months even with lack of sleep, I’ve had clearer skin, no hair loss, a calmness and wholesome approach to parenting a child, a toddler and a newborn not even I could of expected. Everyone has commented in amazement at how well I look especially in those first few weeks considering just weeks before I was critically ill. 

We couldn’t be more thankful to Penny and her infectious joy and precision throughout the whole process. I would not only recommend,  but urge anyone to go for it if you’re having doubts. Penny’s pills have been invaluable to our first few months with our baby.”

"I was recommended to look into placenta encapsulation by a very good friend of mine, who also introduced me to Penny at Balance and Root. I was a little bit unsure about the process at first, but Penny was wonderful and answered all my questions fully and at length without making me feel pressured to use the service.

 

My husband also spoke with Penny and couldn’t have been more on board after their conversation. He was extremely supportive of the process and we both agreed that the proven positive effects on ‘baby blues’ and PND, milk production as well as the many other benefits were excellent reasons to go ahead. Our little boy arrived 12 days earlier than expected but Penny was there ready to go! My husband spoke with Penny more than I did in the end and he felt she was a fantastic source of support and reassurance.

 

The capsules were there waiting for me when I got out of hospital the next day delivered by Penny herself so that she could congratulate us. I also now have a tincture that has multiple benefits and can even be used to alleviate menopause symptoms when the time comes.

 

If you are considering placenta encapsulation, I can’t recommend Penny highly enough. She is professional, discreet and personal. I knew exactly what was going on at all times, which is another benefit of working with Penny as opposed to a larger, corporate company.  If we are fortunate enough to have another child, I will definitely be giving Penny a call!"

“I struggle from ME and I needed extra help helping me to recover after my baby was born. This was my first pregnancy and an extremely difficult one with frequent flare ups that there were only a few weeks I felt I could fully function.  Cesarian section was recommended because it was unknown if I would be able to endure the endurance labour demands. 

Penny recommended raw dried placenta because it is know to help the most with energy.  Penny arranged to collect my placenta from hospital at Royal Berks in Reading and was literally there within a couple of hours all the way from Cambridge, super speedy.   It was such a buzz to see her and show her my beautiful baby!  By the time I had returned home the next day there was already a bottle of my placenta capsules on my kitchen counter which had been prepared right at home, it was a lovely welcome!  

The capsules brought my milk in so fast and I had a really happy and smooth breastfeeding experience.  I can honestly say my energy soared right up after birth and for the duration of taking the capsules I am so glad I took these measures to help me as I knew I had some real challenges.  Now I have finished my capsules now and inevitably I do have days where I need to rest from the effect of the ME.  I have since ordered some homeopathy from the tincture order which hopefully can help me a little further.  

Thank you Penny!"

"I reached out to Penny late in my 3rd pregnancy. She was such a dream to work with! I felt an instant connection from our very first phone conversation. She was able to explain to me the different methods of placenta encapsulation and help me to decide which method would be the best for me and my situation. 

Penny kept in contact with me throughout the last weeks of my pregnancy. She made sure we knew what to do once the placenta was delivered and when to contact her. When the day came for our little one to arrive Penny came over within hours of his delivery and got right to work. She didn’t make a big fuss of her arrival, she quietly worked in the background as we all marvelled over our newest addition.  When our 6 year old was curious to see what Penny was up to Penny was absolutely amazing. She allowed my daughter to watch and “help” and learn. This of course is one of my daughters greatest highlights from the day her baby brother was born! 

Taking my placenta in capsules definitely helped decrease my bleeding, increased my milk production, and helped with my mood sooooo much.  I was much happier these first 3 months than I was in my last postpartum. Getting to know Penny has been getting to know a new friend. She is truly a special person with a big heart. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone interested in placenta encapsulation or tincture."
