Which method did you/your doula/midwife use? 

 

I am debating the methods right now. I think the raw method makes more sense but then again, I'm wondering about the "bad" bacteria that may be on my placenta. 

 

Anyone have any experience?

We couldn't afford to have ours encapsulated, and I did feel like the raw method seemed more natural. I really liked it. My midwife cut it up for us after the birth. I had a piece right away in a smoothie (and my milk came in about 12 hours later!) and then we froze the rest on a tray and then put them in a container in the freezer, putting them into smoothies frozen. We'll do the same this time.

I had mine dehydrated, ground to a powder and encapsulated. My midwife froze it first (without me realizing it, I wasn't clear when I said I wanted to keep it) but the doula said she prefers to work with fresh/raw so I'll try to get it to her fresh this time. I think eating it gave me a huge boost but I'm a picky eater and never could have fried it up or put it in a smoothie, capsules were the perfect option for me.

Happy mumma to my boys Henny Tom (Nov 30, 2008), Arlo Odie (Oct 5, 2010), and baby SISTER! due mid-Dec 2014.
