Would you consume your placenta?

Would you consume your placenta?

The placenta is the organ which functions to feed your baby with oxygen and nutrients via the umbilical cord until they are born. After birthing the baby the placenta is also passed and routinely disposed of as clinical waste. However, the placenta is believed to have healing and nutritional qualities and therefore some women choose to consume their placenta following birth to reap these benefits. Two common ways of consuming your placenta are by blending it raw into a smoothie or having it made into capsules to be taken following the birth.

Research claims that the benefits include:

Improved energy levels
Reduced bleeding post birth
Increased milk production
