EAT YOUR PLACENTA! It’s good for you!

Written by FairyDoula. Posted in Nutrition

Why you should definitely eat your placenta

Basically it’s the thing that your body has made from itself and the food that you have eaten to provide for your baby while it is inside you!

Once your baby is born your whole perspective changes!

NOW the placenta is the natural way to increase the iron & nutrient levels in your body which were depleted by making your baby! It is also the natural way to ensure that you do not suffer unduly with post natal depression!

Ick factor

“Throw it away! It’s disgusting!”

(Don’t be so soft!)

Misguided mush factor

“Let’s bury it under a tree!”

…..

Lara’s rule of thumb:

Bury the membrane & the cord, eat the squishy bits!

It is the best meal a post birthing woman can eat within the first 36 hours of birth! It’s also the only vegan-friendly flesh! No death occurred in its making!

Remember dads could and the extended family could eat some too!

As part of my doula service I offer to cook your placenta for you in a variety of ways and I’m always open to new ideas!

I can also create medicine for you from your placenta. I can dry and encapsulate it for you, and also create mother essence and homeopathic remedies.
