I'm squeemish about eating my placenta so would like it in pill form. I don't see myself having time to steam and dehydrate it before it goes bad. Is there someone locally I can call after the birth to come over and process it for me? How much is this going to cost? I live between Kalamazoo, MI and South Bend, In so anyone close to those towns will probably be fine
If you aren't interested in doing it yourself, then I would contact the doula network in South Bend and Kalamazoo and see if any of their doulas do it.
Thqanks, I posted this question on the local natural birth board which is very active. I'm also looking into having a home birth after another bad OB appt. I'll ask the midwives I contact about placenta encapsulation too
