Anyway, if I had a midwife to prepare it, I probably would, as long as I couldn't taste it...

But the more I read about it, the more I'd try some after the birth. From what I've read, I'd only need to eat a small amount (dime size) uncooked to gain the benefits. I'd also read that it was even better to hold it under your tongue for a little bit before swallowing.
Its suppose to help pp bleeding & depression, so I'm going to definitely try it.
