How Long Do the Capsules Typically Last

Many clients wonder just how long their "happy pills" will last them throughout their postpartum? Here's my best guess if you were wondering too.

Most placentas yield between 100-150 capsules with a good average for a full term placenta being about 130.

We recommend taking 2 capsules about 2 times a day, more or less as you feel you need. There is not a wrong way to take the capsules!

Therefore, the average amount of capsules is going to last about 4-5 weeks postpartum if you maintain that same dosage throughout. Some moms use more capsules in the beginning and then taper off as needed. Some moms have some capsules left over and freeze them for special circumstances such as a stressful event or even menopause.

Since the amount of capsules is variable and the amount taken per day will vary amongst women, each women will have a different length of time hers lasts, but I do believe 4 to 5 weeks is a good estimate.

Enjoy those Happy Pills!
