Re: Placenta: Fresh or Pills?

I had mine encapsulated, my friend did it for me as practice (She had only done one before and was studying to become a doula) Anyway, you can always do it yourself or have DH or a friend do it.

Whoop, just read your post

Congrats on the baby!!!

Re: Placenta: Fresh or Pills?

I planned to do encapsulation, but things did not go according to plan. In the end, I froze it, cut it into small chunks, and tossed a few every day into my morning smoothie with frozen strawberries. Never noticed it a bit.

Re: Placenta: Fresh or Pills?

I had mine encapsulated. This was my first, so I haven't tried it any other way, but I am pleased with the results of the pills!

Re: Placenta: Fresh or Pills?

I had mine fresh in a smoothie, tinctured, encapsulated using both the raw and TCM methods, and I had some of the TCM placenta powder used to make placenta truffles and placentachocolate-covered strawberries

ETA: I didn't taste it in the smoothie or any other method. The texture of the placenta truffles was better when the truffles also involved nuts as placentachocolate can be a bit gritty.
