Ask The Placenta Lady is a show about the birth year. Pregnancy, birth, and postpartum recovery - no question is too strange for The Placenta Lady!

Our question for this episode is: "I'm planning a Cesarean birth. Can I still encapsulate the placenta?"

Joining us to for this episode is Kellyann Battista, of Mind, Body & Spirit Birth and Beyond.

Many people deliver their babies via Cesarean birth, and we discuss how that has no impact on whether or not that person can use the placenta for their postpartum recovery. As a mother who has had a Cesarean birth, followed by two VBACs (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean), Kellyann shares some suggestions for what to tell your birth team.
