    Default What did you do with your placenta?

    I was wondering if anyone did eat their placenta or did something with it. I know there are many nutrients in the placenta but I cannot bring myself to eat it. If anyone can describe the taste/suggest something useful that would be great

    I'll be getting mine encapsulated so all I'm taking/tasting is a tablet.

    Was frozen, and just tasted like a piece of frozen nothing really. I don't eat meat as a rule, so it was more of a mind thing for me, but I just made sure I took it with a strong tasting drink like OJ or something, no worse than popping a pill really once I got used to doing it...

    I personally could never eat it but we did take it home with DS2 and we planted it and put a tree on top. Wish we had of thought out where to plant it tho as we ended up pulling out the tree and putting down gravel as it was out the front. I've heard it can make plants grow like crazy

    Nothing.

    I now know more about the benefits of eating the placenta.

    Having said that, I can't personally see myself going down that road.

    Mine didn't detach on its own so I ended up in theatre having it manually removed. It was recorded as unhealthy so not sure I would have wanted to do anything with it anyway.
