    The only thing I wanted done with my placenta was for it to be thrown in the bin! It's medical waste in my opinion. Plus mine was calcifying and the reason why I was induced, so it was probably only good for the bin anyway! But good luck to anyone that does want to ingest it in any form after birth though it's not for me.

    Off topic a bit but. I saw something on facebook awhile ago about a chef who wanted to see what human flesh tasted like, so he cut off some flesh from his own leg to cook up, but didn't actually eat it because cannibalism, including eating your own flesh, is illegal. So he just did it for the smell and analyzed the proteins in a lab to see what meat it was closest to.

    Now I reckon if you want to be able to eat your own flesh that's your choice. I found it being illegal to eat your own flesh more shocking than the thought of someone actually doing it. But there you go, technically eating your own placenta is illegal

    It's not your own flesh though. The placenta grows from the fertilised egg, with the baby's DNA.

    Placenta isn't your own flesh though.

    I had ds' encapsulated. I'd do it again.

    Not for me. I don't really care what others do but I am yet to be convinced of any actual effect that's not placebo or just plain coincidence.

    The cannibalism thing is an interesting point though. Even if it does grow from the DNA of the baby, it's illegal to eat human flesh regardless of the source! Valid point raised there by @Sairz I reckon!

    I didn't do it - I am not having more kids but I won't. Purely because I have lots if difficulty swallowinf tablets. So... I would not be able to swallow it.

    I'm not ok with eating it in any other way but if there was no issues with tablet swallowing I would try it.

    Off topic but I thought the placenta looked so intriguing. I think I might have said 'yes I want to look' a bit too loudly before the ob even finished the sentence.

    The ob's assistant described my placenta as the rattiest one she'd ever seen. Didn't sound like it would make good eating. It was whisked of to pathology anyway, so thankfully I didn't have to worry about it.

    What would happen if you wanted to encapsulate your placenta and it had deteriorated? Would they do it and would it still be effective?

    I seriously considered encapsulation but was talked out of it by my mum (who is a midwife - go figure) at the last minute. 🙁

    I will do it next time, if we have another and it's available where we live when that happens.

    I got mine (last pregnancy) encapsulated. 100% recommend it. Helped me (maybe placebo but still...) after a csec, faster recovery, no pnd and more energy tham woth the 1st 2 that I didn't encapsulate.
