SERIOUSLY?! Eating Placenta?!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

It's good for you...mammals do this...it's natural...BLAH BLAH BLAH! Seriously?! GROSS!  Breastfeeding, continuing prenatal vitamins, getting rest and plenty of fluids sounds like a better way to feel great after giving birth to me! Sorry but if it came outta my vagina I'm not putting it in my mouth! Would you eat your menses too if you were told it had vitamins in it? How about dog Sh*t if that was "good for you"?! NO THANKS! I'd have to be on my death bed and it would be the ONLY way to save me. Why are people trying to come up with the craziest freaking things they can? Are there no normal moms left?!?!?!

Read the side effects for depression medication.

The only "side effect" of placenta is that you think it's gross.


Newsflash, it kept you alive for 9 months and then you slid through your mothers vagina.

I had HORRIBLE ppd. My husband left me while still pregnant and was cheating on me before that. I already had another baby with him too. I'm at risk for post partum psycosis as well because I have very mild bi polar. I don't care. it's gross. vitamins and breastfeeding my baby and clinging to my family is what helped me get through it. Not my nasty placenta! sorry but even in pill form it's nasty. there's other pills for that! gross...still just gross. no

Oh, really? I'm afraid of getting PPD which is why I don't want to get pregnant. I've dealt with depression and I'm terrified of dealing with it again.


Quoting ColieO:

Most people dehydrate it and crush it into powder, then put it in capsules. They don't usually just munch it or drink it in a smoothie. You can. Most choose not to. I'd do it for PPD. I suffer worse from side effects from medication for PPD that I just end up not taking it at all. If placenta pills really help, I'm willing to try.



Placenta encapsulation is great (really, really great) for ppd. It's much healthier and safer than taking pills too!

My sister is a labor and delivery nurse. She said there is a midwife that brings a blender and makes her patients placenta smoothies after they deliver.

I'm not talking about depression meds. I'm talking about natural vitamins.

No i sought counseling to deal with it and got as many hugs and cuddles from my babies as I could. I had SO many friends and family members tell me how strong I was and how they thought I handled everything amazingly! I did it all without the consumption of my placenta. :)

So you're willing to not be the best you can be because you don't want to ingest something ''gross''? Pfffttt..I'd eat it raw if it kept me from ppd and psychosis.



And to think, you could have just taken a pill and been done with it instead of going through a period of counseling to make yourself feel better. You kiss your kids, right? Ever eat their fingers and toes? They came out of your vagina. ;)

Good for you. I wasn't.

Vitamins aren't going to cure ppd.

Yup. You can even hire someone to do the whole encapsulation for you if you're squeamish. It's no different than taking vitamins, personally.

Like I said, not talking about depression meds. talking about vitamins. also, there is a reason it slid out when I did. and that's because it was no longer useful!

You do realize not everyone has that kind of support, right? Or that that kind of support is not 100% fool-proof?
