OP here - I ended up getting the capsules along with a "mother's broth" made during the steaming process. I put the broth in my pig's foot soup, and couldn't taste anything different - but the soup is 80% black vinegar so you could hide anything in it
The capsules are definitely harder to take. If I let them touch my mouth too long, I get a sort of liver-y, dog food taste and have to wash them down with something strong like cranberry juice. No after-breath as long as I drink plenty or eat something after taking them.
I'm on day 4 and no baby blues so far, recovering well, and feeling healthy. Not sure how to evaluate effectiveness fairly, though: last time was a long labor with interventions and a c/s, this time was a quick natural water birth.
