I know a lot of women encapsulate them, plant a tree with them, etc. What are your plans?
We are moving in June so planting or burying the placenta is not really an option. A lot of people who deliver at the birth center I'm going to encapsulate their placentas - I think the main benefit is protective against PPD, right? I didn't have any with DD and it doesn't run in my family at all and i don't have any risk factors, so I'm wondering if it will be worth the expense. With a big move coming up, we're trying to be careful with money and only spend what is necessary. Plus , I have to admit I still have a bit of an "ick" factor with ingesting part of my body. So at this point I'll likely just throw it away like I did with DD's...what about you?
