@Aquaria:  Our menstrual blood is full of nutrients and what not but we don’t collect it to consume at a later date.

LOL!

@bunnymama:  doubt it. It’s waste at that point. On par with eating your own boogers or swallowing jizz.

@Aquaria:  Wait, don’t you all hold onto period blood … am I the only one 😉

@stefanielovesjamie:  I don’t know, if it was chocolate, I might have to seriously consider it. 

 

 

I would not be opposed to consuming the placenta in pill format, but it’s moot for me, because the hospital I will deliver at does not allow the release of the placenta without dousing it in formaledhyde.

If the APA came out and said “Nothing will benefit your baby more than if you eat the raw placenta”, I’d choke it down.

But until I get a real, totally legitimate study about it, no thanks!

@mamadingdong:  “show me science or I am not interested. If it isn’t possible to show me science, again I am not interested. She chose one phrase from my response and focused on that. I simply do not believe in someone’s story about how it worked for them without some facts behind it.”

I will encapsulate mine and eat it. I also plan to have a home birth with a midwife, my 2 doula’s (who also happen to me my sisters), in a birthing tub.

Uh no. I’m sure my uterine wall that expels monthly is full of nutrients too but I’m not about to start making tampon Popsicles.
