I'm on baby #4 and have never eaten my placenta. I was wonder if some moms who have in some births and not in others saw a difference. My midwife said she definitely sees a difference with less incidence of PPD, less bleeding, and better milk supply. I have never had an issue with any of these things, except bleeding but I think that is normal for me and why should I try and change that?
I have read that some moms have had reactions to eating their placenta or more so to the herbs mixed with them. I would encapsulate mine, I couldn't cook or drink it. Also how much of the nutritional properties remain after cooking/dehydrating anyway? Not all mammals eat their placentas I read. Most do it to clean up their birth site and to prevent the smell of the birth attracting predators. So I'm on the fence about whether nature/God really intended us to eat it.
So placenta eaters was it worth it? What differences did you feel? I don't want to spend $175 on placenta pills unless I'm really going to notice a difference.
