I am considering consumption via capsules because I had the baby blues last time--and I am willing to try anything to avoid it. I like the idea of this being much more natural than taking anti-depressants--even though I am a little repulsed by what it looks like and what it actually IS. Normally one wouldn't say, "oh, this is from my body so I should eat this!" LOL
Anyway, I recovered pretty well last time, but I can't just sleep all day since I have a 5 year old to look after and be available to so I am hoping it will help with energy levels as well. Not to mention my relationship with my husband is in such a good place I would hate to put such a damper on it by heading down that downward spiral. Placenta consumption in Traditional Chinese Medicine is what made me more comfortable with the concept, and the idea that it will be cooked and ground up so not only will it not resemble its original state, but it will be sanitary as well. I'm no vegetarian but raw meat certainly grosses me out. It's not that I need the whole world to be sanitized or something, but if we are treating it like food it is essentially raw meat so I feel like it ought to be treated as such. Then again there is sushi, LOL...
What I am curious about is the credentials of someone who would come to your house and prepare it. I've seen some of the training sites and literally anyone can do this, so what do you really look for? Basically, it's just a person who is willing to do it whereas I am not, right? My husband is just very interested in what we should look for and expect. I wouldn't send away for it, it makes me too uncomfortable thinking about how you wouldn't really know if it was yours!
P.S. Kudos to you if you can look at those pictures and just see the beauty of life!
