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?!?!?!

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. :)

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


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. ;)

I'm terrified of getting pregnant again because I suffered serious ppd. I breastfed, had a great support system, and had a counsellor at my house on a regular basis. For my second pregnancy I tried everything (except the plancenta) that was supposed to reduce ppd & it didn't help. If I got pregnant again I would do it in a heartbeat.

If it was GOOD FOR ME and would keep me from severe depression I'd seriously consider it. Let me get this straight..you would put your placenta in your mouth, it's the swallowing part that you wont do?

NO, I don't take ANY medications for my depression or my bi polar or for my ppd. I went "natural" and went to counseling. I did that BECAUSE I wanted to keep chemicals out of my body thank you very much. I just don't see the need to eat the placenta.

Um. Vitamins don't really cure anything. I tried. Didn't help. If it's not useful any longer, then why do so many animals eat it? They could just bury it. But they don't.

Quoting Anonymous:


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!


Quoting ColieO:

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.

No it's the entire thing. There's nothing "natural" about this! it's meant to be disposed of, no eaten. I mean if it bothers you to waste then use it to plant a placenta tree it that makes you feel better but not for dinner!
