I heard that some do and that it is nutritious. Is it fried up first or just eaten raw?

I've heard of this. It got quite popular in the 80's in California when I was having babies. We made jokes about it, like a new fast food place opening up called "PB" (Placenta burger) I never even remotely considered eating the placenta, though. It really sounds horrible to me; like cannibalism or something. It's "just" a temporary organ, I guess? Not sure what it's considered. But I wouldn't freak out because someone wanted the nutrition from it. Seems it makes more sense that the mother would need that rather than the father, though. Don't animal mothers eat their placenta? And aren't we glad we're human???

I've heard of both eating it and planting it. If we were starving, yes I'd let my husband eat it. But we're not. In terms of food we are doing fine- so there's no need for either of us to eat the placenta.
I'm sure it is nutritious, but I doubt it's any better than taking a multi-vitamin.
