Yesterday on the radio I heard that some people actually cook the placenta after birth and eat it. Why? And I also heard that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were planning on doing this. Why would anyone want to?

My cousin saved hers to plant under a tree. But, personally, I don't think I could ever consume a placenta, especially one that has recently not only been inside me but attached to my child!!!

that is gross to me personally my cat just had kittens and when she was doing this i had to leave the room because i almost threw up but that is what animals do i am sure if they had a choice they would not want to do this either

I've seen hair treatments made of placenta that are supposed to be really good for your hair (never tried it). But eating??? No thanks. I'll get my protein from someplace else!

I heard that mother dogs eats the placenta too. I could not attempt this without vomiting. My facial toner has placental protein in it and it's a great toner for my problem skin so I guess there's some benefit to it. But I would never eat it.

EWWWWWWWWWWWWWW that's all I gotta say

in some cultures they acutually have plecenta partys, where they invite their close friend and families over to meet the baby and enjoy scrambled placenta and eggs. (I made up the eggs part!) AWWWWWW!

jnine29 - April 20

yes i have heard of it but i dnt think i would it myself janine


sunshinekitty240 - April 20

if youve ever seen kittens being born, the mother cat does it too because in nature the palcenta is filled with vitamins and the mother animal is very depleted from the multiple birth so this helps restore some energy. as a person i think its gross but i mean i dunno cooking it? thats just cannibalistic - i can see eating it raw as a weird cultural thing (although NOT one for me im tellin ya what) but cooking it i dunno too gross
