I bet most people have a very strong reaction. We may even hear swear words from some people as they answer the question.
I will be the first to admit that ingesting placenta is not for everyone. Yet, with some growing research and a lot of women who are sharing their stories, placenta encapsulation is something that is becoming more common. Or at the very least, talked about!
My first experience with placenta encapsulation did not even involve capsules itself. The mother had done her own research and decided that she wanted the benefits to help increase her milk supply as well as to improve her energy after birth.
After the birth I went to her home and cut up the placenta into tiny tablet sizes and froze them. She then swallowed them frozen and raw. She was hooked!
As more research is available and, more importantly, women are sharing their experiences, many women are asking about the benefits of encapsulation. There are now more options for placenta preparation too. Not only can the placenta be dried and encapsulated (they look like chocolate bullets!), but there are also options such as the following:
- Homeopathic remedy; Salves; Creams
- Chocolate Truffles
