I don't know if there are any "crunchy mamas" in this group, so I don't know what kind of responses I will get.

What did everyone do with their placenta after birth?
I had a csection with DD, and was pretty out of it. This time around, I will be using half of it to make to make a smoothie (2), and the other half will be encapsulated.

They threw it away as far as I know. Not for me, but not the weirdest I've heard..One midwife that used to practice here made a tea out of it..

Have fun with that! To each her own is what I say! I have heard all the research about the benefits but I just don't think I could bring myself to do it... And what the heck is a crunchy mama??!!

 mine was thrown away all 3 times (as far as i know)

What does eating it (or making a smoothie with it) do?  What are the benefits?

There are tons of health benefits! I am sure that I will miss some of them, but,.... it decreases postpartum depression,decreases bleeding, decreases iron deficiency, decreases insomnia, increases eneregy/milk production...

I have never done it, so I haven't experienced any of it first hand. Everything I've read states this, though. I figure, women willingly take medication to do these things. I am much more comfortable with my in body.

Whatever the hospital did with it. I have thought about encapsulating it if we have another.

I had mild PPD & low milk supply. Those benefits are what make me lean towards encapsulating it next time.
