Placenta talk

Don't know if it's been mentioned before but my boyfriend is wanting to cook my placenta. I must admit the thought gives me the boak I'm thinking about getting the capsules as I suffered from depression before n don't wanna go back down that route with baby blues. What's everyone's thoughts/ stories I'd love to hear them xx

I thought about that but probably won't encapsulate. Wearing your baby skin to skin can benefit both of you and baby. Do your own research but it can reduce post partum depression. It's also called kangaroo care, not just for preemies. Also, I found daily exercise excellent for keeping depression at bay.

Either way is fine. Id do research on it and see what you find to be best.

Go with the encapsulation. I'm planning on doing mine. I heard it gives you a great boost of energy and helps with milk supply as well as mood.
