i've been at births where the mamas did and i've totally wanted to when i birth, but being vegetarian, the whole "meat thing" is gross to me--i hear it tastes like liver. they often stir-fried it with veggies and soy/ginger/sesame sauce. that said, i still plan on eating at least part of it. i just don't think i could eat it cooked like a dead animal. also i would think it would lose some of it's value cooked. either i'll eat it fresh and by itself or i read a great recipe for a smoothie--a piece of placenta with oj, strawberries and banana. she said that with the amount she used, she couldn't taste and then the woman froze some in paper cups to eat over the following days. if we have a freezer, or even fridge that works when i birth, i'll definitely do the cup thing. otherwise, i'll send dh to buy ice and keep it in a cooler and whir it up each day with fruit that doesn't need to be in a fridge. i think it's a very valuable option.
