Ella was amazing and friendly and so professional in her service. I had my placenta encapsulated and Ella collected from the hospital and dropped back to me in my room in a gorgeous gift bag with some other goodies too. I am feeling great, baby is doing well and I can't recommend Nurtured Bambino enough!!

I first heard about Ella and The Nurtured Bambino from the midwives at SJOG Bunbury, at my booking in appointment, when I was enquiring about encapsulation. Ella was absolutely lovely to deal with and prompt with picking up my placenta and made sure I got my capsules back in time for the dreaded 3 days blues. Although the baby blues did kick in they were no where near as bad as I had experienced previously. I honestly feel like the capsules kept me on such a high that I was able to enjoy my newborn baby so much more. My milk supply was great and my skin even healed quicker while I was on the capsules. They made me feel AMAZING and overall I felt like I was coping so much better then I expected with 4 kids and I believe it’s because the placenta capsules helped with my hormones. My husband also noticed the difference in me between not having the placenta capsules with previous pregnancies… and having them through recovery for this one. When I approached him about calling Ella, prior to having this baby, he wholeheartedly encouraged me to do so. I would absolutely encapsulate again with no second thoughts and would encourage anyone considering it or slightly interested about it - to give Ella a call and chat to her,. She is such an amazing midwife and so approachable. She is happy to answer any questions you have throughout the entire process - even when she is dropping off your beautiful placenta package! Thank you Ella, a million times over!

Ella is amazing! :D She is so friendly and helpful with any questions I had!! 
I decided to half have my placenta made into raw frozen cubes which I had in smoothies every morning ( you can’t taste a thing :P) and the other half into the capsules! I wish I had got the whole thing made into frozen cubes! I noticed a huge difference going from the frozen cubes to the capsules! Though the capsules still make me feel better than I did after my first birth. The raw cubes made me feel even better, I can’t rave on enough about them!! 
Ella went above and beyond, including prints of my placenta, some candles with part of my cord dried out! The whole thing was new and amazing to me :D If I ever have another child I will definitely be going through Ella and getting the whole placenta made into cubes!! Thank you Ella :D

"Thank you Ella for all of your help. You definitely provided 5 star customer service. You were such a comfort to me with your assistance with my first experience with placenta encapulation but also through all of your support & advice during my second IVF pregnancy. I really felt you supporting my different thoughts on how i envisioned my second birth to go. I suffered from extremely high anxiety with my first born but honestly feel the placenta tablets helped me manage my anxiety levels so much better this time round. If i felt it creep up I could take an extra tablet to help. The sleep deprivation was even harder for me this time with a toddler in tow & again I feel the tablets helped me manage & cope better. Even all the hormonal changes were more managable and I credit that to the tablets. Ella - I really do thank you for all of your help & care. I have already told many people about how you can help them too :) Thank you "

" Ella was amazing very informative of all questions asked and came the day I had bub to the hospital and I had my pills a couple days later she even drove all the way out to my house to drop them off in a beautiful package alongside my placenta print. They really helped me with those first few days of baby blues, and I felt I had more milk and more energy and definitely less bleeding than my last baby would definitely recommend The Nurtured Bambino Placenta Services to anyone having a baby! Very beautiful and professional service thankyou Ella! Xx "

" Ella was so incredibly professional with her process for placenta encapsulation. She went out of her way to collect it from my house way out of town and had it back to me within a few days, beautifully presented and along with some beautiful cord keepsakes. 

I found a tremendous difference in recovery between my first and second babies which I credit to my capsules! I had so much more energy this time and my moods were much more stable. I was also making enough milk for triplets! 

The Nurtured Bambino is now on my "essential services" list for my next baby and something I recommend to all of my expectant friends. Thanks again, Ella! "

" Ella has been fantastic through my pregnancy / post partum experience. She is informative, and always happy to help with any questions. She was very prompt with pick up and delivery and I felt like my placenta was in safe hands. The capsules and cord keepsake were packaged beautifully, a lot of care was taken. I'd highly recommend Ella's services. 
Thank you for all your help Ella! "

" I came across Ella on Facebook after a family member recommended her. At first I was a bit unsure about placenta encapsulation but then thought "hey what's there to lose? Why not!" So then I sent a msg to Ella! Her response was straight away! She is super lovely and answered all my questions I had. The whole process was so quick and easy, after giving birth to my 3rd Bub ( a giant 9 and half pound boy ) Ella collected the placenta and worked her magic! I had the capsules back within a couple of days, and they were packed up lovely!! Put in a cute jar with a sticker and all the instructions! The packaging was very cute! I found the capsules made me human again :) :) my mood was great! And I found that I had way more energy! Even during those night feeds I didn't feel exhausted which was great! As I was still waking up to our other boy and had to return back to work when the new Bub was 4 weeks old. I am happy with my choice in the end and would recommend it to anyone who was thinking about it! :) "

" I highly recommend Ella - she was so lovely, helpful and professional. This postpartum experience was infinitely better than my first (in which I didn't have placenta pills). Increased energy, better moods, increased libido! Made a huge difference for me and it was all really easy. "

" I'm so happy I got my placenta encapsulated, it definitely was something to get my head around because coming from a Maori background, encapsulation was totally new to me. But honestly the benefits of getting them done are everything you hear of and everything you read, if not more :D I will cry when I get closer and closer to my last pill. Thank you so much Ella for my pills, I loved your attention to detail right down to the little gifts that come with them <3 You were amazing to deal with even with me booking in quite late in my pregnancy , you made it work  :)

I would totally get it done again xx "

" I was lucky enough to be introduced to the Nurtured Bambino by a close friend of mine who was booked in with Ella to have her placenta encapsulated. Even though I live in the eastern suburbs of Perth [a trek and a half from Ella!], she was more than happy to provide me with the service and only charged a minimal fee for the travel required for collection! The entire process went wonderfully.
Unfortunately Ella was extremely busy on the day I had my daughter so wasn't able to make it up to Perth for collection, however she quickly was able to source another qualified and professional encapsulator who was in contact with us about an hour after birth. The process with "The Fourth Trimester" was very smooth from pick up through to delivery and Ella [from The Nurtured Bambino] was always in contact to make sure everything was in order. Even though she was unable to encapsulate my placenta she saw the process through until the end!
I suffered from PND and anxiety after the birth of my son 5 years ago, so this time around I was determined to do everything I could to not travel down that path again! My husband was very skeptical [still is to this day] however I found taking the tablets to work absolute wonders! I had no baby blues, no signs of PND, a definite increase in energy and my mood was a stable as ever! I will not hesitate to have my placenta encapsulated next time around [if I can convince hubby there will be around next time ;) ]. I am now 10 weeks pp and am loving every minute with our new daughter! 
Thank you so much for the wonderful service Ella! I can't recommend you and the capsules enough! "

" I am so happy with the service and capsules I received. Ella was SO lovely to deal with and readily answered my questions. I have a 3 year old and a newbie and feel great! I feel like I have more energy and have bonded far stronger this second time around than I did with my first. I also found I had better moods, decreased low feelings, and I had way more relaxed / happy vibes!! This baby sleeps far less and I still feel as though I have just as much, if not more, energy than I did with my first baby! I totally credit all of this to the capsules. I would definitely recommend Ella at The Nurtured Bambino, for placenta encapsulation, to other pregnant women/friends and have done so already. The booking process was easy, there was lots of information from Ella on sign up, it is affordable and any questions I had were readily answered. The placenta print and cord keepsake included at no extra cost were a high bonus and what sold me in choosing The Nurtured Bambino. Thank you Ella <3 "

" We were incredibly happy with The Nutured Bambino's service. Ella went above and beyond to assist with the encapsulation of my placenta. Ella had the capsules back to me in no time and has been so helpful with any questions we have had! It is also a really special touch to return the cord keepsake and to provide a placenta print. I'm so happy we get to keep those special things forever. <3 Thank you!! "

" I've known Ella since I was 11 and recently came back into contact with her during my pregnancy. Ella has been such a massive support, is always willing to help with a compassionate knowledge on pregnancy, birth and babies. I used her Placenta encapsulation services and received the final product within 48 hours. I am extremely happy with the service and can't wait to utilise them for my next pregnancy and birth. 

Thank you so much for everything Ella <3 <3 <3 "

Courtney N. - Second Baby & Birth Ready Tea

" I met the lovely Ella on Facebook, not only does she run this fantastic placental encapsulation service but she works locally as a midwife and a nurse! She helped me with information and education throughout my pregnancy, only ever being a message away. 
I not only had my placenta encapsulated, I purchased and drank some beautiful "birth ready" tea - that my obstetrician believed aided in my cervix being favourable and soft when checked at 38 weeks, when the week prior it wasn't "ripe" at all.
Although I did have my placenta encapsulated I cannot comment on the results due to a number of unavoidable postnatal factors that occurred and my inability to use the capsules in the early post natal stage.
If I have another baby I would definitely use Ella's services again "

" I would recommend placenta encapsulation with Ella to anyone having a baby!! My mood is crazy good when I take my pills I'm more relaxed and happy and my milk production is better it blows my mind every time I take them, haha. I also used the birth ready tea, but didn't get to know if it had any benefits for me as I had to be induced early for medical reasons. But I will definitely still use it for my next pregnancy :) 
Ella is an amazing support person and happy to answer any questions [and as many as you have] which for me - was so handy. Haha. Thank you Ella I have highly recommended you to all my pregnant and planning to be pregnant friends!!! "

" Ella was fantastic to deal with and provided not only me - but also my hubby - with in-depth and extensive knowledge on both placenta encapsulation [will definitely look into doing this if we have another baby] and a range of midwifery questions we had! Ella was present at my labour [then as a student midwife] and was equally as fantastic in helping us postnatally on the ward. I have been able to remain in contact with her, and seek advice on baby-related developments such as colic, etc. We tried the "Windy Woes" herbal tea which provided some relief for our daughter. Ella was extremely professional and so easy to work with! Look her up! <3 "
