    With my DD's nothing, but we both looked at it, DP is normally squeamish but thought it was amazing to look at!

    I wasn't given an option for my first but I still have my second one. I had planned on eating it, but developed PND before I got home and had this crazy irrational fear that it would kill me I wish I had of eaten it asap to avoid the PND altogether... I plan on planting it with a tree that flowers around DD's birthday, but just haven't been able to do it yet... not sure why. If I had another chance I would eat it for sure, there are a lot of benefits... Don't know why but I have huge appreciation and respect for placentas. I love the placenta photography that I have seen it is a truly amazing organ

    Actually not sure about that, to eat it, you want it to be drugfree, and I'd guess they pump a few drugs into you for a c/s? Most things will cross into the placenta.

    I let the hospital dispose of it as I couldn't stand the thought of eating it, I compare it to eating your own kidney in a steak and kidney pie! I can't find any strong scientific evidence that it beneficial anyway. I thought some animals did it just to hide traces of giving birth to predators?

    There may not be any strong scientific evidence you can find, but I know women who have consumed their placenta and avoided PND after suffering it with every previous birth... I dunno I guess after having PND twice if someone told me eating a plate of pigs testicles everyday for a year would help me avoid it I would do that
