The placenta is a waste product after birth, and is only present for the duration of the pregnancy...it is certainly not equivalent to eating an actual body part...rabbits will eat their own droppings to gain extra nutrition...most placental animals will eat the placenta after birth...including herbivores...it is certainly not an 'unnatural' thing to do...no matter any personal distaste over it.

I remember watching the River Cottage (a cookery programme here focusing on growing everything organic and making everything yourself) where the cook made placenta kebabs and other dishes for a child's coming home party from hospital. I think he made it quite tasty by watching people's reactions...I would imagine it would be a bit like black pudding

My guess is that it means women with children already deal with enough juvenile behaviour and hence didn't open the thread.

I remember that too -it reminded me of liver which would put me off anyway.

When I had my kids, eating my placenta was the last thing on my mind but I don't see anything wrong in others choosing to do so if they wanted -whatever rocks your boat.

I've a friend who's a midwife and delivered hundreds of babies. She's been asked a couple of times if the placenta can be taken home which there's no problem in arranging but apparently at least one time the couple had second thoughts and never got round to eating it. Some placentas apparently can be quite grey and smelly when they're delivered - like meat gone past their best before date (more so if the mum smoked during pregnancy) which would be even more offputting.

Why am I not surprised by this?

Most disgusting thread of all time = http://forum.interference.com/t150310.html

And, as disgusting as the prospect of eating a body part (though it really isn't at all like that) is to me, I honestly see nothing wrong with it. The English have worse sounding food than this, I suppose.

All I'm going to say on this is:

Diamond, darling, coaching two live (as opposed to dead, I suppose) births does not an expert make. Frankly, I'd take advice from a woman who's /had/ a child.

But, well...that's just me.


Placenta, anyone?

Why is it not acceptable for another woman to eat her placenta. Why would you prefer to deny her this right?

^I am not denying anyone of ingesting anything that their body produces (except for babies!) i'm just stating it's not necessary! I have no problem with anyone wanting to eat the membrane that kept her baby inside of her for 9 months, whatever floats your boat, i say!......I'm just saying it's not acceptable to ME as it is not necessary. I mean what's next .........sucking on a gallbladder stone as it is high in calcium

Umm....ingesting a placenta is wrong on pretty much every level. There is no reason in nature for this. It seems to me like a psychological disorder.

Uh, then you voted wrong. The question is whether it is acceptable for someone who wants to do it.
