Placentophagia? What? So my friend Dana who is a doula and studied midwifery had the same reaction. I had no idea if it was psychosomatic or a real deal. I still don’t, but I LOVE IT! My philosophy is if it works, do it! I always say “just eat it hot when it comes out like other mammals in nature” hahaha. Here is another option, call Dana.
Here is Dana with her sister who passed recently.
O.K. So Dana does placenta encapsulation Chinese Medicine Style. I am indeed a fan of Chinese medicine and during the pregnancy of my first daughter encouraged it to the mother of my daughters and she was a Western Medicine Doctor. She LOVED IT( lots of big love in this blog).
The first few times I heard about this I was like ” That isn’t chelated or made for the body to absorb, why not inject it?” Little did I know families were really benefiting from this. Talk about eating crow! Just eat placenta capsules.
Great! So there are two ways of doing this type of encapsulation. I am not a pro at this at all! Dana and my friend from Portland, Jules the midwife are. I like the explanation of the types by Jules so here it is: What are the types
Take a look at this: Dana talks encapsulation.
I love what she has to say so I won’t say too much. I do wnat to say that Dana opened her house to one of my favorite families I have worked with to have their birth there. How the hell can I not LOVE that!?!? She has also been a good friend and collegue who I trust and know is a wonderful person all the way around.
