Give Birth, Eat Placenta (in that order)

Back, back in the day when I knew this chick who was dating this dude who was an intern in a doctor program and he was in his OBGYN rounds and it came out—

Some people ask to save the placenta post-birth…so they can eat it.

Horrified, and slightly intrigued, I forgot about it until a friend forwarded this article from BabyCenter in which a woman (veg when not pregnant) discusses placenta eating and preparation.  Yes, there is a picture of a sandwich.  I have to tell my self that the “p word” is not its main ingredient…

Read the article:
“She ate her placenta and it was good”

    Omg… why are people so judgemental

    “I’d have to be stupid-drunk to eat placenta (…) First off, I’m a vegetarian (except when pregnant).” <— so if you were a vegan you wouldnt breastfeed your child??? Plus, you were eating meat from actual dead animals while pregnant anyway…

    You don’t want to eat placenta, fine, but being a vegetarian is certainly not the reason.

    “labels” maaaan.
    please imagine i’m saying this in my best impression of the stereotypical stoner hippie dude voice. it just works better that way.
