Did you EAT the placenta?
I am thoroughly grossed out by placentas...the idea that people freeze them and bury them, save them, etc just really freaks me out.
However, I had heavy bleeding the last birth (the one and only) and I've been reading that eating the placenta helps stop the heavy p.p. bleeding. Also, it supposedly, according to Chinese Medicine, cures Postpartum Depression. Anyone tried to eat it? I've heard of people making placenta smoothies! Again, I'm so disgusted. But curious...that bleeding during the birth really scared me...*maybe* enough to consider taking a bite...but I'm not sure. I've seen some people dehydrate them and make them into capsules...I just don't know...but I'm curious.
Then again, I've been vegan for 3 years, but I feel like being vegan to me is about not harming other animals...and the placenta, being made by me, wouldn't seem to go against my veganism.
:) Hope people respond!
