I've thought about it but I'd rather consume my placenta.

We were talking about this at my last appointment and my mw assistant said she did it bc she new it would gross out her mil and she wouldnt be stealing the baby and holding it all the time for those few days:)

That's hilarious!

To answer the question I never considered it-I would rather encapsulate it and doing both is possible but I'd rather be extra careful with safe handling of it for consumption.  Plus in nature it would never be left on that long and I tend to use that as a barometer for my choices.  Everyone I've heard of trying it ends up cutting it before it falls off naturally because the logistics of carrying the placenta everywhere get annoying.

I don't know much about it except for the little my mw told me, but we will be cutting the cord about 30 minutes after birth.

Honestly it would be a pain to carry it around every where with the baby.  I left it attached for quite some time till I was sure it was done pulsating.  Bowl went every where baby & I went.  When the time came my 9yr old got to cut the cord.  And the placenta was encapsulated(to help w/ PPD).
