My friend is giving birth today. She suffered with PPD with her last child and so I was going to do placenta encapsulation for her. Her OB said he wouldn't give her the placenta. "We don't do that." was the statement. Crazy, huh? Do what exactly? It is a shame because a woman having any kind of birth can reap the benefits of the placenta, and yet docs stand in the way of them getting their own placenta! I am so glad for this woman - why shouldn't she win?
