Hi all, 


My name is Becca Newmark and I'm a senior in the Anthropology department at Princeton University. I am writing my senior thesis on the practice of postpartum placenta consumption/placenta encapsulation as a means to increase milk production (as well as other possible physiological benefits), and I wanted to post on your forum to see if any of you have encapsulated or otherwise consumed your placenta in the hopes of increasing your milk quality or quantity. 


If any of you are interested and willing, I would absolutely love to speak with you regarding your plans, your past experience, and your understandings of the potential benefits of placenta encapsulation. Of course, I understand if you are not interested in speaking with me. While interviewing women is an important aspect of my work, I believe it should be valued both by myself and by the women I am interviewing, and so I completely understand if you don't want to participate. 


You can reach me on my account here, or at my school email ( Thank you so much for your time!


Wishing you health and happiness, 

Becca Newmark

Welcome to Mothering! I'm going to move your post over to the Breastfeeding forum where it is better hosted.

Oh, I do hope you'll share your results!  I only know of the one older study on this.  However, as there seems to be a fair bit of recent anecdotal evidence suggesting that placenta consumption may actually negatively affect milk production, there is clearly a need for more research in this area.
