I know many moms who made placenta smoothies or had a trusted caregiver encapsulate it. I didn't because both of mine ended up being hospital births but I have seen and read enough to believe there are real benefits to it.

I'm sure there are benefits but I seem to be doing just fine without consuming my placenta so really... I'm good. I'm sorry, I don't mean to poke fun but that is just so NOT for me lol

I am thinking for me it would cause malnutrition because I don't think I could stomach the thought

My Doula would encapsulate it. She is trained in doing that if requested and charges about $150 for the procedure. It is just like taking a herbal pill. No taste really. From what I am learning I think it is something I would definitely look more into and strongly consider for my last birth in the future.

Greenmagic why did it matter that you had a hospital birth on why you couldn't do it? My Doula does it for the clients that request it and all of their births are in a hospital setting. She was just called in today(that is how the discussion started) by a lady who had given birth 20 minutes prior and got her name from a friend. She wanted her to encapsulate it for her. So she went in to talk to her about it.,

I'd say it went pretty well

His grandmother was almost in tears, and kept repeating, "I'm going to be a GG!" It was pretty darn cute. The funniest thing is how everyone said, "Thank you!" to us. Um, you're welcome? I feel like I should be getting a charitable donation receipt or community service hours if it's such a gift to people

It went a lot better than telling my parents, who are a little less thrilled. (I asked my dad if he wanted to be a grandfather, and his words were, "Do I have a choice?" ) I'm glad we saved DH's family for last--it was actually almost fun instead of stressful to share the news today.
Awww! That was ADORABLE!

I miiiiight eat my placenta, but if I could get it safely encapsulated, I'd definitely do it.

Every other species does it, and no harm comes to them. I doubt I could get over the smell/taste/texture to eat it normally. I absolutely believe it's most likely beneficial to consume it.

I generally don't eat things that come out of my body.

That said, I have heard of people having placenta parties. Eating your own placenta... ok whatever, eating somebody elses? No. Just... no.

I have totally considered it - but only if encapsulation was an option. Consuming it raw sounds 1. icky and 2. risky if it's not handled just right.

Yeah, but hamsters often eat their babies and cats lick their babies' butts. I'm not really one to follow the things other species do

Zach's grandfather is such a hoot. He's only been given a couple months to live, so I don't think he will make it until baby comes, but I'm really hoping we've given him a reason to hang on. He's my favorite.

Nothing truer has ever been said.
