Your actually going to eat WHAT?

I am wondering if there are any mommy's out there who plan on eating their placenta. I have a friend who plans on eating her's and sent me a recipe for some kind of stew.... I just don't think I could do it.

Any thoughts?

I plan on researching the benefits of encapsulation.

I would not eat it. I am however encapsulating it. That will give me all the benefits without actually eating fleshy meat.

I might end up finding someone to encapsulate it for me.

I plan on putting mine in raw honey and consuming it that way. Less messy and less costly. I have no interest in making it into a stew or smoothie. I would gladly eat a pinch of it raw, if I was bleeding heavily, though. It stops the bleeding, if you are having an immediate hemorrage after the birth. I would also consume it after it has been encapsulated, if I could find someone around here to do it for an affordable price- and that I trusted.

encapsulating sounds a whole lot better than actually eating it.

Lol! That is not why women (and critters) eat their placenta! It has a LOT of benefits! Especially, in helping milk supply and staving off PPD (in humans) and offers a number of nutrients.
