Anyone reading this blog for more than a week or two will know that I am passionate about placenta medicine! Placenta medicine, or the maternal consumption of the placenta post-birth, is an amazing, awesome way to regain energy after the birth, prevent postpartum baby blues, lessen after-pains, and keep emotional balance. It's counterculture in the West, but it is oh-so-worth-it!! Anyone even remotely interested, check it out!
An Arizona midwife just posted her experience with placenta medicine - a very interesting read.
I Did It - Ten Days of Eating My Placenta
She took it to a more spiritual level than I did (I just focused on the physical benefits), so this was really interesting for me to read.
Oddly enough, I was just in Sedona this past weekend.... hopefully I'll get to meet this midwife sometime!
