Would you save your placenta

AND make a dish out of it to eat? Many women are doing this. WHY?

  • Dog's do it.....anyway, no a hospital won't let you take it, it's a bio hazard to take human tissue out of a hospital unless it's done by an authourized medical professional for reasons of transplant or testing. But yes in some cultures it is very common to eat or plant the placenta. Nuskin products are made from human placenta! eww!

  • I would have eaten mine if I could have (they had to send it off for testing - long story).

  • So, you need to home birth to keep your placenta? That does not sound worth it.
