Episode 36 - Placenta Consumption and other uses

In this episode Mel and B look at all the options for what you can do to honour and use your placenta after birth, including the option of eating it. We particularly delve into the research on placentaphagy (aka eating your placenta) to help women make decisions about if they believe consuming their placenta would be beneficial to them. All the evidence that we used to create this episode is in the resource folder for anyone on the mailing list to access.
