Cure for Postpartum Depression

Midwifery Today has started a book publishing section called Motherbaby Press. The first book we published is called Placenta: The Gift of Life by Cornelia Enning. The book covers placenta rituals from around the world and the history of placenta remedies used throughout the ages. It has 15 recipes for using the placenta in ointments, essences and other remedies. I was having lunch with a midwife friend and she told me that she has been using placenta tablets she makes from women's placentas, to fight postpartum depression (PPD) in women. She said her results have been amazing. She thinks it works every time. We need more research on this. The answer to PPD might be within the mother's own womb.

Placenta: The Gift of Life can be ordered here.
