So to eat your placenta or not eat your placenta that is the question?
If your grossed out. Well i don’t blame you. The thing kinda looks like some alien brain meat or something. And being mostly vegan. The idea of eating that thing is like no thank you.. i can’t even touch raw meat.. so yeah.
So how did this idea even come to me? Well i was talking too my sister on the phone about birth ect. And she asked me what i was going to do with my placenta? I asked her what i could do.. and she was like some hippies like plant it or even weirder eat it. Once she said that i was very interested.. really people eat it? Mmmm this set me off on an investigation.
To eat my placenta or not to eat my placenta? Didn’t know it was an option.
I was amazed at what i found!

* Reduced risk of postpartum anemia.
* Increase in breast milk production.
* Reduction in postpartum bleeding.
* Pain relief, and faster healing.
I live in Seattle and i was shocked at how many doulas and services there are to do this.. its kinda crazy awesome.. If the idea of having this thing made into a shake or baked into something is like too much. Well encapsulation is a great option! Nothin gross about popping a pill is my thought.
Here is a directory in the USA of who does it!
