    Default Mmmmmmm....Placenta....oooohhhhh....

    Woman ate her baby’s placenta in a sandwich
    By Kim Margolis | Tuesday, April 14, 2009, 10:52 AM

    A woman named Chrissy Schilling had a baby last week and then ate the placenta.

    The practice of placentophagia, eating the placenta, is practiced in many parts of the world, and is said to stem postpartum depression and help to contract the uterus after the birth.

    After Schilling had the baby, her twin sister, Kathy prepared the placenta (I will not go into it. I am so sorry I read it. I will not put you through that.) she cooked it. They ate it in a panini and on pasta.

    “I think people being grossed out by this is mostly just ‘fear of the unknown,’” Kathy says. “It’s the same sort of reaction people have when it even comes to the cuisine of other cultures - what’s normal in another culture can seem repulsive to one’s own.”

    The new mom said, “It was symbolic for me as a way to truly say “goodbye” to my 9-month pregnancy and “hello” to an exciting (albeit challenging) new chapter in my life.”

    The story comes from a mom site called www.momlogic.com. The site had their staff obstetrician/gynecologist weigh in on the safety of eating placenta.

    Dr. Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz said: “Basically, it is fine to consume the placenta — and many traditional cultures advocate the use of the placenta for obvious reasons. The placenta is chock full of iron (lots of blood in there) and hormones, too. During pregnancy, many women develop anemia, a low iron and blood cell state, from a combination of the fetus preferentially getting iron and from dilution of red blood cells by increased fluid volume in Mom. Additionally, women experience a fairly sizable blood loss at delivery and this contributes to their need to increase iron in the post-partum period.”

    Dr. Gilberg-Lenz said hospitals or birthing centers usually have guidelines for the release of the placenta to the mother.

    It's more common than you'd think...especially among very traditional indigenous communities or groups that have migrated to more "westernized" areas but maintained a strong tie to their ancestral traditions.

    I've never heard of eating it in a sandwich though...that's a new one. Usually it's made into a stew or something...

    still...I asked The Wife, who sent me the story, and she said she would definitely be passing up the opportunity to munch on the placenta when we get around to having a child.

    I've heard of it being cooked in onion gravy. A bit like liver and onions. Add a bit of mash and some cabbage and you're on a winner!

    If someone told me eating my own turds was indigenous to some parts of the world and could in the end prove to be healthy, I'd rather just be weird and unhealthy from their perspective.

    The same applies to this.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
