OK so to some this topic may be gross but to others its of interests. I am one of the ones who recently took interest in consuming my placenta after birth. I would like to know if anyone here has gave it a try? if so in what form? how did it taste? how'd it make you feel? how'd you go about consuming it? the costs if you had to pay for it to be prepared? any and all info that can be given is much appreciated. thank you in advance.

I had mine encapsulated. It was $175 and I got about 100 pills. No taste. Kinda smell like a vitamin.
I found someone when I was about 20 weeks along. I checked in wi th her every few weeks. Texted when I went into labor and after the baby was born.
My midwife knew I wanted my placenta ans she had it bagged and oh on ice. My encapsulator came and picked it up. 2 days later she brought my pills.
If you want more info lwt me know.

I think it's worth a try. Encapsulated seems to be the most popular.

I am interested in this as well. Is there a website or information I can read about the benefits of consumig your placenta? I'm afraid to Google anything because it's difficult to decifer fact from opinion.

I can plan on having both babies placenta's dehydrated and encapsulated. Suuuure, it sounds weird, but I dont think it's too weird.

What are the benefits of doing it? I don't think it's something I will do since I'm weeks away from my due date and don't have a clue of who to contact about it. However it's interesting.

I haven't done it personally and I believe it may be a religious issue for me to consume it as a Jew (not sure). Interesting subject though.
