I have to admit...my first thoughts were "How disgusting! How could anyone eat their placenta?" Honestly, the thought of it made my stomach turn..until, I came across a post on mothering.com. They dove into the benefits and the ways it can be done and I was intrigued. I started doing my research and I was amazed by the amount of benefits eating your placenta really has. I never would have thought or even imagined I would be considering this let alone planning on it, but I am. Not only am I planning on consuming my placenta after birth, but I am excited about it. I am excited to feel what "they" are speaking of. I can't wait to see the difference it makes! Has anyone else researched this, are planning on it, or have done it?? What are your thoughts? What was your experience??

Here is the link that introduced me to the idea, you'll have to read through the replies. Some talk about the smoothies others talk about encapsulating...

Here is another great link for the smoothies but beware the link in the second reply, it is graphic, with pictures and there are no recipes for smoothies but there are other recipes...

I had mine encapsulated after having my third child and I found that it helped me totally avoid the 'baby blues' as I had with my first and second births.  also helped with healing time, energy level, etc.

I was going to have mine encapsuled after my second birth however, no one in my area does it. Due to my living situation I can't encapsule it myself since it is against regulations for me to even bring it into the house. It's definately something I would do though if I could.
