    I haven't investigated it thoroughly, I don't know.

    I must say, my friend's artwork is pretty confronting, lol. It looks so cutesy, the image of two hearts, but it was painted using her placentas. I think it's pretty cool.

    haha, it's so funny and interesting to me the placenta becomes a metaphor for people to express/preserve the sentimentality of giving birth. but hey, different strokes for different folks.

    oh yeah, the placenta is a total thing. i know some native american tribes buried it in a place that symbolized what they wanted their child's work to be in. (like burying it under some cows if they wanted him to work with cows or whatever) that goes back to what lexicon said about people's beliefs in its benefits being based on folklore and not on science. ohh the mystical placenta.

    Can I just eat some eggs instead?

    I wouldn't call myself squeamish - fine with my blood, fine with others' blood, fine with big gaping gushing wounds - but the idea of eating that really does not strike my fancy.

    The potential depression link is interesting, though. I read an article suggesting PPD could correlate with nutritional deficiencies, maybe placenta consumption would help make up for that?

    All the trustworthy-seeming information I could find states that no scientific link has been established to suggest either benefit or harm from it.

    OMG! I would have never had a second kid if I'd had to eat my placenta. Maybe not even the first. After I had my second, the doc was all excited about my huge placenta (she said it was probably two pounds) and tried to get my husband to look at it. He about lost it.

    It reminds me of this:

    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I think I've heard it can be beneficial to eat it if you are vitamin/iron deficient. But, I don't think there is really any benefit you can get from it that wouldn't also come from regular supplements. One of my roommates is planning to eat hers after she has her 4-7 children. But she's also super into hippy birthing stuff. She plans to have most of her children unassisted at home.
