Holly Stewart, the founder and sole operator of East Tennessee Placenta Medicine
started her business on the idea of making placenta services available to every postpartum mother.
She knew the benefits of placenta encapsulation, and after the birth of her first child in October 2009 she found herself unable to find anyone in the Knoxville area who provided the service. With the help of her husband, they eventually encapsulated their daughters placenta themselves. It was then that Holly realized that more mothers needed to have access to this service, to have someone be able to help them do it it, and provide it at an affordable cost.
With that East Tennessee Placenta Medicine was founded. After some training, Holly began providing placenta services to postpartum mothers in Knoxville. Initial clients were mostly those giving birth at home and in birth centers, but now word is catching on to those delivering in hospitals as well.
According to mothers who have done placenta encapsulation, many report benefits ranging from increased milk supply, decrease in postpartum bleeding, balancing of postpartum mood swings and increased energy levels. With every land mammal on the planet consuming their placenta after birth, why should human mothers lose out on this benefit? Taking your placenta and turning it into easy to take capsules is a great way to gain the possible benefits of your placenta, without the “yuck” factor of having to mess with it yourself.
Holly’s goal is to bring placenta services to the mainstream in Knoxville. She believes that every mother needs to chance to decide if this service may be right for them. Those first few weeks and months after a baby arrives are precious. Holly hopes that with her services, she is able to help that fleeting moment in time be just a little bit easier for new mamas in the Knoxville area.
Holly serves all of East Tennessee including Knoxville and other surrounding communities. She will also travel for long distance clients outside the general Knoxville area. Contact her to see if she will come to you for placenta services.
