It doesn't gross me out. I am nto sure if I'd do it, but the idea doesn't make me sick or anything...
I didn't have a chance to even consider it with my birth, but hearing it could prevent hemorrhaging? Wow, that makes it definitely worth considering for me. I needed a transfusion after birth last time.
To me the difference is that a placenta isn't a waste product like boogers or those "other things".
I tasted alot more of my breast milk than a tiny drop! I can't be the only one, right??? Why would you be squeamish about breast milk and then feed it to your baby? I don't get that! (It tasted good, I thought. Like vanilla soy milk. I wouldn't make ice cream from it though, too much work when I can just run and pick up some Ben and Jerry's without all that pumping. :LOL )
I am surprised at the negative reactions, I thought this place was crunchy enough that everyone would at least be blase' about it, even if they didn't choose to do it themselves!
