Why Women Eat Placenta

Eat Your Placenta If It Meant No Postpartum Depression?

Motherhood isn't for the squeamish, but could you stomach eating a placenta? Some women believe that Placentophagy (the act of eating one's placenta) can ward off postpartum depression since the disposable organ is hormone rich and may balance out a woman's emotions after giving birth. Whether it is prepared like a protein or taken in capsule form, would you ingest it for the possible benefits?

I would definitely do it if the placenta was encapsulated.
