I am intrigued also, but it isnt for me. I was shown my placenta each time; the first baby was in a very 'natural focussed' hospital, & they showed me the sac, any spots on the planta,the cord, etc, all while explaining it all to me. It was great to see, & they slso asked if I would like to take it with me.
The thought of eating or cooking placenta absolutely churns my stomach. I do find it really disgusting to think about eating, sorry (but I am talking about me, not about anyone else. No judgement on anyone who does eat it). If there were scientific studies that showed great and tangible benefits, I would possibly swallow it encapsulated - but it would have to be worth the $400ish (cant remember exactly, but it was a lot) price tag that it costs for someone who does it in our area.

thread and voicing their hatred for it or anything. I've also found all of the comments (well, except one) to be completely respectful, just full of questions.
It's surprising to me that people are saying placenta encapsulation is in the minority. Maybe in other places, but I'd say it's equal, if not the more popular choice for those that I know.

My second delivery was quite an ordeal and I wasn't asked, but they had transported it with my dd to another hospital, in case I wanted to look at it or keep it.

maybe j was so happy to encapsulate and consume because I hadn't seen the placenta beforehand? 😂

Showing the placenta was very much part of the birth process where I birthed. I didn't realise that it wasn't standard across the board.

For those concerned about the lack of evidence etc, I saw a bunch of researchers recently (from memory) proposing to look at the components of the placenta after being prepared for encapsulation. So there are people looking into it but it's not something easy to get funding for.
Eta. Found the link https://experiment.com/projects/a-sc...lacenta-tissue
And an update: https://experiment.com/u/vD1OBg
Should be some interesting results out of this study.
