I am not sure were this should go, but I was sort of beinf silly and looked up placenta recipes on google, and there a lot of them. Anyway, one didn't sound too bad. Has anyone actually eaten their own placenta or eaten someone elses? Was it nasty? Was it like other meats?
Eating it kind of gives me the willies to be honest, although I am most intereged about it and thinking I might try it. Although my DH is totally grossed out about the whole thing. LOL

A friend of mine looked up some more info for me. Apparently to get all the benifits from the placenta reguarding cramping and PPD you need to eat it raw, which I know for a fact that I am not ready for. LOL
That website given has some pretty intense pictures, but the recipe was on that site, along with another site (The PLacenta roast... actually sounded good for a "real" roast).
I am tempted to try it, but I am not sure I could actually handle my placenta to prepare it. Makes me feel all ooky. Oh well, we will probably just bury it under a tree in the yard. Although we still have dc#3's umbilical cord in the freezer (after almost 3 years!) awaiting a tree to plant it under. Not sure I want a whole placenta in my freezer that long. LOL

I like the idea of a tinture. I am very sure I could handle that. I am not a raw meat person, and if it is like j-ello OH, not so sure I could handle that. Although I am tempted to try and make a hunk of it into the "Placenta roast" for myself. Or maybe a stew like thing?
I ahve been a bit worried about PPD this time around. I am pretty sure that was my problem with my third one. (I have been reading over a journal I wrote) I don't want that to happen ever again.
I was alos wondering, this may sound weird, but what if anything did it do for your labito? While I am pregnant I really love sex a lot. But after birth I am a non-sexual being for sometimes up to a year. Occationally I will have sex with my dh just out of guilt because it has been like 4 months. Do the hormone levels in the placenta help with that? Anyone know?
Also back to the tinture, how long can the main bottle of water, placenta essence and alcohol? If all you need is 7 drops, it seems like it would go bad before you need to make another bottle. How much water do you need to make the first "tea"?

Thanks
