D.R.T. 2015 - Day #15: Eat The Placenta? #crunchy #parenting #momlife #randomthoughts #2015
Thursday, January 15, 2015
What a fun thought of the day, right? Since having my youngest, I think that this is something that is a trend on the rise. So, I wonder....If I were to have another child someday, would I have my placenta encapsulated post-birth? A little more research into it, led me to a few interesting articles:
Is it really beneficial? It appears there is some controversy over this question. Many mothers say "Yes, it helped me recover faster!", while others say "I didn't notice a difference." and a third set actually claim "It made me feel worse!". Here is the link to an article on US News I find interesting covering this subject. WebMD has some more scientific based information about it on their website. This is an interesting story by a woman who took the pills and had a poor reaction. Overall, I think that this process is interesting, intriguing and worth a shot!
