Ingesting placenta?

Postby Yaybaby88 » Fri Mar 27, 2015 12:33 pm

Anyone else plan on ingesting their placenta? Initially I planned on encapsulating it, but now I'm leaning towards just bringing it home whole and putting peices in smoothies. I've read the benfits are better than encapsulating because that process makes it's less nutrient dense and effective. Has anyone done this and has any tips or recipes? I'm a bit nervous.

I think I could only tolerate the encapsulated form, which is what I'd love to do! Unfortunately if I'm being completely honest with myself I don't think I could stomach it otherwise. I hope you get some good feedback from those who have done it!

Thank you for replying! I actually found a home birth support group on Facebook and the woman seem to know a lot about it :)

Animals do it in the wild every time - supposed to be great for you! I haven't researched it yet but I am interested!

There are so many health benefits! I'm still torn on which way to ingest, but I think DF is grossed out so we may be encapsulating. Lol

Congrats on the bfp btw! I stalk your buddy group because Katy used to be in my due date club. :)
