I'd like to keep my placenta after the birth and use it to help with any post-partum depression. Can  I ask to keep my placenta? Should I ask them to freeze it or refrigerator it?Continue

I have been finding that the mothers whos placenta's I process with the raw method are feeling better than those who choose the TCM method...any thoughts on this?

Hi Laurel - I'd say yes to both.  A frozen placenta may have lost some nutrients, but it's still better than no placenta at all, IMO.  A single dose of penicillin shouldn't do any harm as a residue in your placenta.  The amount left behind, if any, would be very small on a per-capsule basis.

I gave birth on May 27th and have had the placenta in a freezer since. I am wondering two things. One is it still alright to encapsulate? Also wondering I was given penicilian during labor (probably around 3:00am and my son was born at 7:32am) because I tested Strep B positive, is it still ok for me to ingest my placenta? Please also take into consideration that I am breast feeding.

Shakeeta, you can use your oven.  I'd suggest lining the baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper so the strips don't stick.  Set your oven on the lowest possible temperature.  You might need to keep the door open as well to keep it from getting too hot.  I set my dehydrator for about 110-115F, and most ovens don't go below 200F.  I don't know how long it might take in your oven - probably after the first two or three hours you should just check on it hourly.  You want the strips to be dry enough to snap in half without being burned black, if possible.

What different steps would I need to take if I don't have a dehydrator? Can I just use my oven and a baking sheet?

I just wondered if anyone knows if there is a difference in benifits when you steam the placenta before deyhdration or dehydrate it raw?
