We have a great opportunity to have my placenta encapsulated and put into a tincture, etc. I am really excited about it, but DH is supportive but doesn't really "get it". Since we are spending some $$ here, just wondering if you who have done this with previous pregnancies could share your story (maybe it will convince him:)).
Also, does the placenta have big immune boosting properties? I developed mastitis 3 days postpartum with DS and though I was able to manage it without taking antibiotics, it did last 10 days and it was alot of work to keep from getting out of control. The only thing I can think is that it was immune related and wondering whether the placenta could help this sort of thing, in addition to keeping colds and flu away, etc.
