My pregnant wife, Randi. Placenta inside.So, what’s it really like to ingest your placenta?
I’m so glad you asked!
After our son Sam was born (August 29, 2013, 3:09 a.m.!), we prepared for my wife to eat the placenta. The plan was to take it home, powder it, have it put into capsules, and then for my wife to consume it. Why? During our hypno-birthing classes (more on that another time), our instructor had told us about how placental capsules may ward off postpartum depression (PPD). My wife had terrible PPD after the birth of our first child, Stella, and we would do anything to avoid that. Even something as seemingly kooky as this.
