In the General Off-Topic Forum, "thanking" and "groaning" is not possible as it's disabled.
Rep isn't though...

Re: Discussion about placenta encapsulation/eating.

Well TWO things I've learnt today!

I had my kids in the early 70s- and have never heard of placenta eating before today. It does make sense somehow- each to their own. Certainly doesn't do any harm so why not?

Re: Discussion about placenta encapsulation/eating.

Apologies, I don't mean to offend.... but the idea gives me nausea.
This placenta idea as well as food recipes with human breast milk are..

If a woman feels deeply about the issue of placenta, then there's always the option of donating stem cells (extracted from the cord) for research or for life-saving operations.

Re: Discussion about placenta encapsulation/eating.

Same here - I just can' get around the idea of eating my placenta. It fed the baby and that's about it. I don't have any romantic feelings about it.

And not all women suffer from postnatal depression.

But really, each to their own. If someone wants it, please go ahead.

IMO, taking home placentas from a hospital for a compost heap is pretty sick...
and eating them isn't?

I would prefer to have cheese/yogurt/milk made out of human milk than cow milk. At least human milk was designed for people with only one stomach. I can't stand udder milk. But to each their own.

Re: Discussion about placenta encapsulation/eating.

Guess this isn't as popular here as it is in the States. I didn't realize that when I asked...I thought it might be more popular as you moved East.

Here is some additional great info about it...it has benefits past breastfeeding and PPD...the capsules are also great to use during menopause, etc.

Re: Discussion about placenta encapsulation/eating.

I just clicked the info link and think it's more an esoteric belief than a "scientific" approach. If you it makes someone happy and she think it's really helpful - why not?

Ha ha, so true. My husband had a lot of "Yes, dear; of course, dear" moments after I had given birth to my son. It came with a "let's just keep the peace" subtext.

Re: Discussion about placenta encapsulation/eating.

I find it interesting, thanks yasmina and Carlos for open mind and info. I knew about it way back, it is done by some groups of moms, and I wouldn't say those are the same hippie nuts as circle nurse, for example. I have pretty much only heard of some moms years back tasting it as a thanking ritual. If there are ways to make more use of something so genius, why not. It is probably multiple times more useful to hormone regulation for a new mom than nursing, anyways.

I can see the benefits, especially in terms of PPD, 80% of new moms experience them so if there is a way to smooth things down, why not. Better than coffee and trying so ultra hard get their "life back" in order to safe sanity, without much support since baby blues are still not really recognized and loads of women do not get the support they need, just some happy pills or htfu advice.

I am kinda regretting putting this miracle organ into a bin after it has served so well, when you think about how many babies have very serious troubles due malfunctioning placentas, makes you appreciate your own fabulous system.
