    If I had known more about it I would have done encapsulation but I hadn't heard about it til recently. A few friends had done it and both said they felt great.

    I don't think there is any solid evidence that it's effective anyway.

    No idea. It barely did the job it was supposed to do, so I doubt it would be useful. I'm pretty sceptical about the whole thing anyway.

    I could be really wrong, but my understanding is that the placenta is part of the baby, not the mother. And the idea of ingesting >500g of my baby just weirds me out! (Along with a lack of evidence for doing so)

    The lady who encapsulated mind said that if it wasn't 'healthy' she wouldn't encapsulate it.

    I shocked everyone (including my Hubby) when I had my placenta encapsulated. I would definitely do it again if I had another baby.

    The placenta is one of the ugliest things I have the misfortune to see on a regular basis!!

    Back in the "olden days", midwives would take placentas home and chuck them on their rose bushes. Apparently made for beautiful roses.

    I think placentas are amazing. Definitely not hideous. My midwives with my babies talked so highly of them, and took time to show me it all. I actually loved how one side looks like a tree with all the veins branching out like they do.

    Don't get me wrong, I think placentas are amazing too! Ugly, but fascinating. Both times I've had a baby I've been given a "guided tour" of the placenta by the midwife. Great distraction while the OB does their thing assessing the damage downstairs! But it doesn't make me want to ingest it.
