    You said what I wanted to say but better haha! But I completely agree, definitely not convinced on the benefits either. And I also don't care what others do, I just could not eat it myself, especially after seeing what it looks like.

    Yep. Just tossed it back still frozen with OJ, was a bit difficult to begin with, especially as I don't eat red meat, (placenta is considered vegetarian, apparently, as no animal is harmed lol) but soon got the hang of it, and it was fine. No drama.

    I know my placenta tablets boost my milk supply. Months after I stopped taking the tablets I thought I'd try and use up the ones I had left. DS would have been nearly a year old at the time so my milk supply was well and truly stable and established. Within a couple of days of re-starting the tablets I suddenly started leaking milk all the time. My breasts were getting very full as well. I stopped taking the tablets and within a day or two the leaking and fullness subsided.

    Both. Also, as a pp mentioned, the lack of regulation is worrying.

    Two weeks into doing this with my third baby (not tried before). Feeling great so far, fast recovery, previously have felt depleted for up to two years following the birth and breast feeding of my two girls, hoping this May help to avoid this.
