Ipswichwitch you beat me to it with the fava beans and a nice chianti. When I gave birth, after when the placenta came out I asked if I could see it and I swear I nearly threw up. Didnt Tom cruise get Katie Holmes to eat her placenta because of Scientology?

I personally would not but you could express breast milk and give them that as it containes everything and more than what the placenta has.

Eeeeeww!! My dh would have me sectioned for even suggesting it. We decided to bank ours. But if you do feel you would like to make use of your placenta who don't you donate it to blood cord research... Probably better than eating it!!

Er, can you imagine them agreeing to it, grin
I think my dh and dc would have thought I'd gone mad if I suggested it.
If they aren't old enough to understand could you imagine the conversation in years to come.
Ok, if you want to eat it go ahead, but don't expect your family to.

Why? eating your own is one thing, but feeding it to the family is cannibalism.

ipswichwitch Fri 30-Aug-13 12:38:28

also, how would you cook it.......with fava beans and a nice chianti ..........

ipswichwitch Fri 30-Aug-13 12:37:41

is that not cannibalism?..........
you'd be hard pressed to find many family members comfortable with eating relatives body parts (internet weirdos aside)

And you would do this because.......?

Er yes... Pretty sure it's illegal too. You can only eat your own!

YABU why would they want to eat it. Why not just give them a nice burger?

noblegiraffe Fri 30-Aug-13 10:04:33

Would it be cannibalism? confused

Don't be daft OP, that is.

ClartyCarol Thu 29-Aug-13 23:38:30

Oh don't be daft.

Yes of course yabu.

Why would you? It has nutritional value to you apparently, "studies have shown that eating the placenta can curb postpartum depression, replenish nutrients, increase milk production, and slow postpartum hemmorrhage." but these are benefits for you. Im not sure your family really need them! hmm

I know times are hard but surely a pack of mince would be more appetising! grin

Mine was so large it could have replaced the 5 fishes grin
