    And did you feel it helped? Would you do it again?

    I wouldn't do it, I just couldn't justify paying for that, when cutting it into small bitesize pieces and freezing it is so easy, and free.

    I wanted to do it but DH wasn't keen on me ingesting something that we didn't know how it was prepared. He was concerned that maybe she might confuse placentas or could have been making them in unsanitary areas.
    As there are no regulatory bodies regarding this sort of thing.
    I couldn't just cut it up and eat it at home, that would have made me chunder 😣

    Yeah, I can understand you point of view there. I guess for some that method is a little too 'raw' lol but definitely effective! Is this what you did?

    These are all really understandable points. There are some people working on there being regulations put in place here in Aus for this practice which will be great!

    Is there any particular reason? (if you don't mind me asking)

    Bit too icky or not convinced of the benefits?

    Me either. The thought of ingesting something that came out of my body grosses me out.

    Nope, not something I would do.

    I'm personally not sold on the benefits and think it's mainly placebo, and the thought of consuming my own placenta makes my stomach turn. I could care less what others do, to each their own, but not my thing
